Our week 3/12-3/16

We didn't spend as much time in the school room as we usually do. We had plans with friends a couple of days and the weather was really nice one day, so we spent most of it outside. Monday was the only day we spent as much time as usual in the school room and Tuesday we did a little bit.

Our shelves

Number play
This was mainly to practice tracing the #2, but I also
put 2 each of several items in the bowl. After pairing
them I was going to have us work on skip counting
by two's. But we didn't get to this one this week.

Kumon activities
We didn't do these this week. She saw them at one
point and was excited for it, but we never got back 
to it.

This is always one of her favorite activities. I put
two animals for each letter in the bowl this time.
It only threw her off when she got to the 4th animal
she pulled out and it didn't match her remaining letter.
She tried to put it in the right spot and take the other
one off, but then it had no where to go. Once she
realized there could be two on the same letter, she
finished quickly.

Sticker mosaic
Usually a hit, but we didn't do it this week.

Counting puzzle
She had fun with this one, but it didn't challenge
her at all.

Lacing cards
She loves lacing as long as I don't put it out too
often. She chose the pig this week.

Transferring using tongs. I also had her sort them.
She always loves transferring activities. This one
was a bit more challenging because these tongs
have more tension than the ones she usually uses.

I finally finished our light box. This has been on my to-do list for about 3 months, so I was excited to finally get to it. 

Some school-time pictures

Kumon workbooks
I don't usually get pictures of it or mention it, but
she LOVES her Kumon workbooks. Especially
mazes. We have a stack of workbooks and she
picks them almost every day. She will do a handful
of pages from each. She would go straight through
the entire book of mazes in one sitting if I didn't
slow her down!

I did something kind of crazy. I let her dump out
every container from my supply closet. It's mostly
all the different things I use for sensory tubs, sorting,
transferring, and phonics.

 She had a blast dumping them out and playing
in them! She called it "play soup". It was a much
bigger mess than it appears in the pictures! We
did at least get a little bit of educational value
out of it. We played "I spy" and worked on
being descriptive. It took myself and DH, with
"help" from Monkey, over half an hour
to get everything sorted back out and put
away. It was fun, but I think it will be a while
before we do Play Soup again!

Just a few fun non-school time pictures
