Having Fun Learning

Our Week Having Fun Learning Together!!!
Emily is 43 months old and Juliette is 14 months old

This week was very exciting because Emily started a preschool program that she will go to for 2 days a week at the same place where we did a Mommy and Me two year old class last year.  Emily was so excited about her first day of  school and couldn't wait to see her teacher again.  In addition to this program I will continue to do our pre school at home and with our friends too as well as Music at my friend Sarah's house and the art group that I host at my house.

Emily on her first day of school!

 We used our new rollers to paint on large sheets of paper during art group

Emily and I made goop and she loved pressing her magnetic alphabet letters into it.

After reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears Sarah had the girls practice following directions as she gave them the steps to make these adorable shape bears.

My friend found and printed out these bear pattern worksheets and we used my counting bears with them to practice completing the pattern and 1 to 1 correspondence.

To go along with the Three Bears book we also did another pattern and cutting practice activity.  Emily had to cut out the pieces and then glue them to complete the patterns.

The girls decorated bear shaped brownies for a yummy snack.

We read about apple orchards and made a cute apple sun catcher for our stART project this week.

 Emily couldn't wait to test out the new cones that we got.  I set them up in a line and she ran in and out of them.  She did this until Juliette came in and decided to move all the cones into the other room!

Juliette discovered our garden and helped me pick a bunch of cherry tomatoes.  

 Juliette really enjoys music class, she especially likes sitting on the parachute and popping bubbles!

While Emily was working on her projects, Juliette played with the other Tiny Tots, here they were exploring the fridge farm!  It is cute to see how much they interact with each other now.

I think it's really terrific that you not only have your 1 on 1 time with the girls, but are able to host/attend things like your art group.

Gee, apples seem popular this week. I've seen them featured elsewhere, and we also made, read about and baked with apples. Love the sun catcher. The cone activity looks fun, what a fantastic idea.
Looks like you had a great week.

We used the same bear strips this week. They are great! I'm glad you are still going to do your group school, I love reading about it!
