Language Arts and Reading:
Our task this week was to fingerprint some violets and the letter V. I love that Hannah's little tongue is sticking out.
This is an area that I have seen Ethan grow so much over the past 6 months. When we started these alphabet letter pages Ethan would SCREAM if it involved anything other than crayons or the occasional dot marker. He was adamant that he did not want to get his hands dirty. Now look at the happy boy with paint covered fingers.
I took a bunch of plastic eggs and filled them with 3 letter words and the corresponding letters. Ethan enjoyed matching the letters, calling out the letters, and then telling me what sound each letter makes.
Hannah did a very good job of matching the letter and sounding out the words.
This book has been read at least a 100 times this week. Clearly a favorite.
We did another activity using the eggs. This time each egg had a different number of counters that they needed to match up to the number line that I laid out.
The of course they wanted to play with the eggs. Filling and spilling is very entertaining.
Hannah and Ethan both enjoyed exploring the reaction between vinegar and baking soda. First, I needed to show them how to use the pipette. Hannah picked this up quickly, Ethan eventually switch to a spoon in frustration.
I mixed food coloring into the vinegar so that they had several colors to choose from. It was quite the bubble mess they made.
Hannah declared at the end that she made green yogurt.
Faith Formation: Easter
This week we spent lots of time preparing for Easter. All week the kids checked on our Easter garden to see if the seeds had sprouted.
Here is Hannah retelling the Easter story using the set we made from Catholic Icing.
We also made a story book that we read together.
Hannah and Ethan coloring a banner that we wrapped around our garden.
Just for Fun:
Hannah and Ethan played Geo Lotto. It is a visual game that we were given by a friend. They loved it. There are several ways to play it, they played the most basic: match the card to the board.
Opposite puzzles. Another favorite.
