I was out of town again. This time I was at a conference. Hubby purchased a new cord to download pictures! These are some pictures I took before we went on our trips. I took pictures of some of the activities on the shelf and the kids working with them.
UNITED STATES FLAG PUZZLE
I got this idea from my training. I took a flag and cut it into pieces so that my son could put it back together correctly. I thought this was going to be easy. I was very wrong. He really has to pay attention to the color of the stripe to begin with and also the rest of the stripes.
SUMMER LACING CARDS
A very popular work. After working on these, we worked on sewing using felt pieces with a real needle. The children quickly learned how sharp they are! They cannot sew on their own yet. I sit with them for real sewing. I will do something very simple as a small circle or straight line or square. I will trace the pattern on the felt so we can follow it. We may spend maybe 10 minutes each sewing session.
These beads have letters on them. Bella and I worked on how to spell her name with the beads and then made a bracelet.
WHAT COMES FIRST, SECOND, THIRD
Bella LOVED this work. I also loved to listen to her as she figured out what came first, second, third. Lots of language here to describe what is happening. I was given these cards by Sweet Boys teacher along with all of the other materials she gave me.
