You might be able to see that these pictures were from October with the decorations. We were definitely scaled back this week because we had my dad and M visiting, so we were doing more outings and activities with them. We still managed to get letter P in, and he was happy with what we planned.
We were quite busy for letter H week. As usual, we started with uppercase H but did other activities to include big brother Fudgelet, too.
Welcome to the letter O! This was the week when we started doing fewer activities just because I felt like the Chiplet was needing less structure. But as usual, we started with making the uppercase O.
I decided to do “F” next for our letters because we were entering “Fall” and I thought we could do some activities around that.
After our trip to Maryland, I started doing more activities with the Chiplet in mind. The Fudgelet is happy to do the same activities even if they are easy for him. He always manages to enjoy this sort of stuff regardless, so I figured by starting with the Fudgelet around, it would help model some good behavior for the Chiplet. This is why we did some of our activities like coloring more rice, etc. So, the very first day that the Fudgelet went to Kindergarten, “school” started for the Chiplet.
I realized it had been awhile since I updated on what happened with our letters. And part of the problem is I hadn’t actually taken pictures of the remaining ones. Or, at least, I thought I did, but haven’t been able to find them. Sooooo, not sure. Anyway, I just took pictures of them since they are still hanging up. We use them to help remember letter sounds when we are spelling and sounding out words. I also took pictures of our number line which I will post maybe next week.
And here with are with another batch of lowercase letters to enjoy. As you can see, I stopped taking as many progress pictures…and often forgot to take pictures each day of the letters. So, some are group shots. Buying the googly eyes was a great investment. As you can see, eyes were added to just about everything. Easy for mom, fun for son.
