It's finally time for back to school and I must say my little Adrian was quite excited when I mentioned it. As he hasn't started in his "real school" yet, homeschooling his baby sister has been slightly delayed for now.
This Week's Theme: All About Me
Math - Eye Color Graphing
-Eye Color Graphing was done using pictures of family members I showed him on the computer. The grid was printed from abc-teach.com. They have lots of of different grids for graphing and are free to print.
Physical Development / Outdoor Play - Variation of Twister
-Twister Game Variation. I personally called the colors for Adrian to touch with his hands and feet to make it more manageable. Painted Paper Plates could have been used but since we played outside, I chose to use Lakeshore Learning Materials' Balance & Flexibility Kit Domes which are quite sturdy.
Art - Handprints & Footprints
-Handprints & Footprints. After setting out the washable tempera paint and foam paintbrush, I let Adrian paint his own hand and make a print and then let him do the same for his foot. He really liked it and suggested that we make more prints with other colors later this week...
Science -History - Family Tree
-Adrian knows his grandparents but does not see them very often as we live abroad a lot. I thought it would be fun to include them in this activity but I also thought it might make Adrian understand that that although I am his mom, I also have a mom and a dad! :) I helped him through the tree for placement of the pictures.
I must say that I forgot to bring out my trays today so the materials were not organized the way they usually are but truth is...it'll only get better as the year goes by...well hopefully! :)
