Week in Review

Here is a little bit of what we have been up to lately:

Language Arts:

Week in Review

Hailey has been busy reading “The Littles.”

Science:

Week in Review

We wrapped up our landform unit last week.  We played this fun game from Around the Kampfire.  We took turns spinning to see which land form or water form we would land on.  Then we had to tell what it was called, if it was a land or water form, and then give an explanation of what it was.

Week in Review

Hailey had a great time playing the game!

Week in Review

As an ending project to our landform unit, Hailey mixed up some salt dough so she could create her own island.

Week in Review

Her island had to have 5 different land forms or water forms that we had learned about.

Week in Review

She included a volcano, a water fall, mountains, valley and a plain.

week8

After it was dry, Hailey painted her island.

Week in Review

The completed island.

Week in Review

She drew a map of her island.

Week in Review

Then she wrote a little story about how she found the island and what happened after she discovered it.

This was a super fun unit!  Most of the activities came from the unit at Around the Kampfire- and I highly recommend it!!

Week in Review

Hailey completed her first sewing project!  She had a great time and is already working on her next one.

Week in Review

Here is a little review of a few things we have done recently:

Week in Review

History/Geography:

We have been loving using the Expedition Earth curriculum!  We studied about China and had a great time building the Great Wall of China.  We had an educational fair at our homeschool c0-op and decided to share the Great Wall of China for Hailey’s activity.

week20

Hailey was so proud of her hard work!

week21

Hailey’s poster display along with the Great Wall of China.

week26

Hailey made a little vocabulary booklet using one of the activities from Around the Kampfire.

week22

Volcano page

week25

Hill page

week24

There are lots more pages and this has been a great way for Hailey to learn the  definitions of each landform.  Plus, she enjoyed drawing the pictures!

Other:

week27

Hailey is working on her first sewing project.

week35

Hailey recently had a gymnastics show.

Tot School

Hunter is 27 months old.

Tot School

We’ve had a kind of crazy 2 weeks with the stomach bug going around our family.  It took us 2 weeks to do 1 weeks worth of activities, but we are finally all on the mend and back to normal (I hope).

Letter O Activities:

Tot School

I used several printables from 1+1+1=1.  Hunter always starts out by coloring his letter of the week paper.  Some weeks he puts a few scribbles on the paper and says he is done.  Other times he spends a very long time coloring every part of the paper.

Tot School

He tried his first lacing activity, and he did pretty well (with some help).

Tot School

Putting together the letter O puzzle

Tot School

Pointing out an O on the ostrich.

Tot School

Hunter glued foam letter Os onto the ostrich.

Tot School

We made an O is for Octopus.  Hunter spent a while using his do-a-dot markers to decorate the O.

Tot School

The finished octopus.

Tot School

After we sang the alphabet I asked Hunter to point to the letter O on his ABC board.  I expected him to (possibly) find the O flashcard.  Instead he pointed to an O on the boarder.  I was excited that he really recognized the letter O.

Manipulatives:

Tot School

Hunter is just loving his blocks lately!

Tot School

Working on a puzzle.

Tot School

More building with the blocks.

Tot School

Practicing his cutting with playdough.

Sensory bin:

Tot School

The only sensory bin we did this week was with foam letters.

Other:

Tot School

Painting with water colors… maybe all the other moms already know this, but I found a great way to do water colors with a toddler.  Before Hunter started painting, I took an eye dropper and dropped a few little drops of water into each color.  After a few minutes, the paint was all ready to use without Hunter having to remember to dip his brush in the water before the paint.

Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots were up to this week.
