Almost a week of rain kept us inside. Today the sun was out and it was hot!
We haven't dove into the new letter lessons yet so I was grasping for ideas.
Jerry bought me flowers a couple weeks ago and sadly it was time to throw them out. As I was looking at the flowers I realized I couldn't let them be thrown out when there was potential for learning.
I took the flowers out of the vase and set them on the grass next to a pot I am not using yet. I called the kids over and they went about discovering flowers.
They smelt them.
And picked off the petals of some.
They enjoyed this activity for over 30 minutes.
I relaxed in the warm sun while they discovered and turned some music on with my phone.
In no time shoes were off and we were dancing in the grass!
Wednesday was my 'Kid's Day', the day I did or played what the kids wanted too. Our schedule has changed. Athena's bio mom has been reliable for 4 weeks now and has been picking Athena up on schedule which means Wednesday it is just me and Spence.
I decided I would use the day to work on things Spencer needed to practice.
First we played matching. This is a concept I still don't think he grasps.
We are working on it :)
Spencer really enjoys working in the workbooks. I took one out and we focused on the Letter A.
I noticed Spencer recently recognizing letters and sounds.
In the 'classroom' we have gone over the letter A so this activity was more of a review.
After putting an eraser on the letter a's Spencer asked for more erasers so he could match the colors.
