Who needs a matchy-matchy theme? I did, but it isn’t working this year, so I gave up. This is why we have the Letter O and Forest Animals together! No one notices this but me (and you), and if the boys don’t mind that it isn’t all themed together, then I shouldn’t either!
Thing Two LOVES animals. He has a blast this week with our Forest Animal activities from the book All About Animals Around the World.
(Easy Homemade Felt Board Instructions: Cut a piece of felt the size of the back of your white board (or a study piece of cardboard would work too, our white board just happens to be small and portable) and hot glue the felt onto the board! We use the hook side of Velcro dots to make our laminated story pieces stick to the felt. We have a ton of unmatched hook side Velcro dots due to our calendar system – so glad I found a way to start using them up!)
4-piece puzzles of some forest animals we read about in our book. He loved these (he loves puzzles).
He also sponged painted a tree! This was the cutest art project – and he really enjoyed the sponge painting…too much…you can see his tree is all over the place. I just cut up an unused kitchen sponge. Easy – I will have to work more sponges into our art days!
Thing Two also enjoyed some LOTW activities from COAH. This week we did the letter U, it was the last of our vowels. I wanted to work on vowels first this time through LOTW so we could work on their sounds, and then begin trying to build words. Next we’re venturing into the consonants in no particular order.
Working on his “munching” skills. Big Brother (Thing One) is so good with his cutting now, and of course cutting is all Thing Two wants to do….into.tiny.little.pieces.all.over.the.floor!
Having fun with dinosaurs!
Counting chicks for our Number Poem this week: “5 Little Chicks.” He had lots of fun with this poem!
