New August Work - By the Sea
We gathered lots of sea shells while on our trips. Here I have divided them by porous, smooth, light colored and dark colored shells. The kids really love to look at these with the magnifying glass.
I found lots of learning cards at the dollar section of Target. One of these was US Animals. I purchased two packets for matching. I just pulled out sea animals for matching, Bella enjoys doing this. On the back of each there is information about each animal which Sweet Boy enjoys to hear about.
Here I pulled real pictures from the Internet of sea animals that matched the plastic sea animals for the kids to match. When I showed it to them we went over the names. I will be adding the Spanish and English names for Sweet Boy to match. I sent the pictures to Walgreens for printing so the pictures are absolutely beautiful. I used google picture search and chose to view only Large pictures. The large pictures are great quality for processing.
We are planning a trip to the local aquarium this month and I can't wait to hear them talking about the fish using their proper names!
Another activity that I did not take a picture of is the game Go Fish. I purchased the cards for a $1 but I can't remember where I got them. Any how, they are very cute. They have different fish on them so it is another chance for us to get to know their proper names!
