Back in January we had the letter S for our letter of the week. I didn’t take many pictures of the activities we did, and since it’s been a while, I don’t really remember much :-/
So, here are the few pictures I did take:
Hunter and Harper both made discovery bottles that looked like a snowstorm.
Hailey, Hunter, and Harper all made a snowstorm painting. They dipped shower puffs into white paint and stamped it onto some paper.
Hunter had fun playing with his bristle blocks.
Just because they are too cute
Hunter put snowflake stickers onto the letter S.
I assume it was a fun week, but it’s been too long for me to actually remember hahaha
Hailey and Rich all ready for the father-daughter dance
Hunter was my handsome date for the evening
Our first week back to school in January after our Christmas break, we focused on the letter W. A couple days into the week we (Rich) decided we were taking a trip to Disney World, leaving in a couple of days. So, our letter W activities got put on hold and finished up when we got home from our trip. Here are the activities we did:
We focused on the book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak for the week. I love to pick one book for our focus book and then read it everyday and base our activities around that book.
We used the Where the Wild Things Are pack from Royal Baloo. We rolled a die and then Hunter stamped the number that was rolled.
Harper always likes to be a part of whatever Hunter is doing.
Hunter made a little book about the Wild Things that he could read all by himself.
He used water colors to paint a W.
Harper kept busy by playing with stickers.
Hunter did a shadow matching game. Some of the wild things were pretty hard to match up, but he did great!
Harper working on her writing.
I put out some different colored shapes in the colors of the Wild Things and the kids created their own Wild Thing.

We had lots of fun learning about the letter W!
Our homeschool co-op group has an education fair each year. The kids are able to pick any subject that they have learned about for their projects, so it is not just a science fair. Here are the projects that Hailey and Hunter made this year:
Hailey read Chocolate Fever by Robert Kimmel Smith. She created this board as a book report to tell all about the book.
Hunter had been working on a farm unit and created this board about who lives on the farm. Of course he had a little help with cutting things out, but other than that he did the work on his own.
I am very proud of how hard both of them worked!
