Having Fun Learning

Our Week Having Fun Learning Together!

Emily is 38 months old and Juliette is 10 months old


During Music Class Sarah introduced the kids to the piano/keyboard.  Emily was very excited about this and followed Sarah’s direction once it was her turn at the keyboard.  She loves listening to and watching my mom play the piano and is so excited to learn how to play herself, even though right now we are just starting out with very very basic concepts.


We made pumpkin bread with our friends at Sarah’s house.


The girls did a find the V letter hunt with the bingo dauber.


We did a listening and following directions activity/game that went really well.  I am excited about doing more of these kind of activities to strengthen their listening skills.  It also reinforced placement concepts (ie. under, above, in…)


   I made another Which One of These Is Different printable for the girls to do since they liked the other one.  In this one they had to find the different shape.   I had Emily point to the one that was different, tell me why and then circle it.  She did really well with it. 


We worked on patterns with these printables from Confessions of a Homeschooler.


We did the letter V and made a Vase with foam and felt flowers.  It came out really cute, I can’t believe that we are almost finished with our alphabet book! 


Emily painted with bug sponges.

For our stART project we read Splish, Splash, Spring and Emily drew a picture of herself with a rain hat and umbrella.


Emily helped me fold towels.  She always asks to do the little ones so I give her the washcloths, hand towels and dish towels to fold.

Juliette has been very busy!!  She went to Mother Goose Time at the library again this week and had a great time.  She is always on the go and I can’t believe how daring she is, she wants to walk so badly.  I also noticed that she is gesturing so much more recently.  She is pointing and waving at things that she wants or likes.  She practically lunges out of my arms if she sees something that she wants to get closer to.


Juliette is very strong she was pushing Emily on this lion walker. 


The babies watching the big kids at the keyboard.


Aunt Christina trying to get Juliette to walk, it really looked like she was going to let go and walk to the froggy!


Juliette “helping” fold clothes, she loved playing in the laundry basket.
