Having Fun Learning

Our Week Having Fun Learning Together!!!

Emily is 47 months old and Juliette is 18 months old

This week we had a baking play date, music class, a snow storm and art group.  With a lot of playing and having fun while learning at the same time.

Emily was very excited to add some more sight word cards to her sight word ring.

Juliette continues to follow Emily around and want to do the things that she does.  I also noticed that she enjoys playing with the kitchen set.  While Emily was sleeping she played cooking with me.  She pretended to pour and stir and eat all different things.  It was so much fun to play with her :)

Emily had fun baking Pumpkin Muffins at Sarah’s house.

The girls worked on file folder games while they were waiting for their muffins to cook and cool. IMG_7244

For this game they had to find the missing letter.

For this game Emily practiced matching.

For this game she practiced matching colors.

IMG_7261 I walked into the living room and found Emily reading with her LeapFrog® Tag Reading System.  She LOVES that she can interact with the book and it is great when I am not able to be right with her.  You can check out my Amazon Store to see the other books we have (btw- I get a very small percentage of the purchase of anything from this store or the links in these posts).IMG_7263We took out our collection of Mr. Potoao Heads and Emily had fun making all different creations.

I gave Emily our magnetic letters and she decided she would make the whole alphabet.   IMG_7271

She also had fun using the letters to spell our names.

IMG_7279 For our stART project we read Snail Trail and made an open ended collage inspired by Matisse.IMG_7294

We got another 12 inches of snow this week so we were able this Paint Snow.  This was a great open ended art activity as well as fine motor skills practice and color mixing too.  Oh yeah and A LOT of FUN!!!

Emily loves her Tangoes Jr. game.  She wanted me to take a picture with her completed level 2 card, which she did all by herself.

Juliette made cupcakes with this Melissa & Doug Bake and Decorate Cupcake Set.

Juliette also loves the Tag Reading System.  ABC Animal Orchestra is her favorite.  She is able to click on the pictures and listen to the different sounds all by herself. IMG_7278

What a wonderful week! Robbie loves Mr. Potato Heads. I can't seem to get him into his Tag reader, though. I wish he'd try it again.

Thanks for sharing all your creative activities.

Fun! The girls are growing up so fast...I think someone has a birthday coming up. My Emily has that same owl shirt, and we have that fish magnet puzzle too. =p Can they be anymore fun than they are now? Love the Potato Heads too!

Sounds like a great week. I am curious about something...when do you switch over to counting by years instead of months?
