Francesca playing with linking cubes. We love these things! Katie used them last year to learn 1:1 correspondence, patterns, etc. This year Frankie uses them to do color sorting activities and all kinds of things. Here she's making a train. (I know the composition of this pic is terrible. My photography professor would be very disappointed with the laundry on the table!)
Katie working on a math page in her Singapore book
Grandma brought balloons! (YOU try keeping pants on these kids!)
We recently read "Mushroom in the Rain" Here are the girls gluing blue rice on raindrops. We got this activity idea here. This is a very cool website that has all kinds of Francesca aged lesson plans for a variety of books. The "Mushroom in the Rain" was a free lesson plan. We learned of this website here when we entered for a chance to win a years worth of lesson plans. We didn't win :( and at $20/month they're a little pricey for us, but definitely worth checking out!
What a special treat! Daddy got to teach back in September while on vacation!
Here's Samantha working at her table. (when she saw that I was uploading pictures she said "you're not going to post that one of me doing my schoolwork are you?! Yep. This might be the quickest way to ensure I get some good pics of my gorgeous girl!)
Hahah! Another example of her teenage girl affliction! This is seriously what all my pictures of her look like!
Well, that's it for now. I have many, many more to go through and resize, so check back often!
