We have officially made it through the alphabet! It's been a year of lots of pinterest searching, trial and error, late nights of planning and prepping, and a lot of fun learning time with my kiddos. I won't lie not everyday was a smooth home school preschool day. My kids are 3, 2, and 1. And, they all have their 3, 2, and 1 year old moments. Oh and I have my mommy moments too! But, I would do it all over again and will next year! It has been rewarding to have the opportunity to experience all those "ah ha" moments and to be able to learn right along with my kids.
We are looking forward to a more laid back summer!
Our letter X activities were deleted from the camera because I thought I had put them on the computer...I guess I didn't..oops!
Here is Y and Z!
|Y day was yellow day! After finding all our yellow clothes, the kids went on a yellow hunt. Here they are laying out all the yellow things they found.|
|We made yarn bowls. This activity idea came from the blog Find Joy in the Journey. This activity was easy and only requires a bowl, plastic wrap, yarn, glue, and your willingness to get sticky!|
|While Ava and I worked on a number puzzle, Dominic practiced cutting yellow paper.|
|Look Mommy I did it! Our long puzzle goes up to 25!|
|Since the weather has been so nice, we did handwriting practice in the driveway!|
|We finished our Y theme with a Y mini book.|
|Practicing writing the letter Z|
|Ava and Dominic made a zebra craft. The template came from DLKs Craft for Kids . We talked about the patterns that can be found on a zebras skin.|
|And, of course we needed to take a trip to the zoo! Here Ava and her friend are enjoying the Manatees.|
|The kids were excited to touch real furs.|
|While at the zoo, we of course needed to seek out the real zebras!|
Thanks to all those who have followed our journey of home school this year!
