Our week: April 16th to 20th

As the weather gets nicer we're spending less time indoors and less time doing "school". This is fine by me! I am so ready for more outside time!

Our shelves

Magnifying glass
After exploring these items I intended for us to go
outside and gather some leaves and sticks or something
for the next time. But she took off with the magnifying
glass and has been playing with it all over the house. :)

Zootles magazine
I decided to put this out instead of in our science
drawer. We often forget it's there when it's tucked

Rhyming puzzles

Kumon activities
The same ones out as last week. Since she hasn't been
picking it lately I asked if she wanted them back out
or not, but she always says yes.

For copying and continuing patterns. We can of
course dump them out and do new ones, but I like
having it ready to go with the first set.

This week she was more particular about lacing it
the same way all the way around. Often she does 
some in standard stitch style and sometimes loops
it around the side to come through the same direction
as she did the hole before. This time she noticed how
different it looked than mine, done all the same way.
So she took out her last few and redid it all the same.

Window clings
She really just loves doing these. Not sure how
educational it is, but it's fun so it's okay!

Art book
This week we did tracing objects. She liked
tracing her hand the most. 

Water color painting
And of course some painting.

I actually didn't take a lot of school-time pictures this week. The camera died early in the week and I procrastinated charging it. I have several more on my phone, but they're not very good and a pain to get on to my computer. 

This girl LOVES mazes!

She wanted to do more colored water art on paper
towels. This time she asked me to cut out some
Easter eggs for her to color. I also did some hearts.
This way was pretty fun! A new way to color 
Easter eggs! She also turned a few of them into
"projects". Mostly this meant cutting them up or
folding and taping them.

Just for fun!

Meeting a brand new baby cousin!
