Our morning started off at the dentist. This was Luke’s first visit and he was a little shy and apprehensive at first, but everyone who worked there did a great job and he was soon sitting in the chair and doing a great job!
We then headed off to gather some supplies for Liam’s scout cake for his banquet this weekend. After much contemplation on what kind of cake to make, we settled on going for the most colorful cake. I found a tie dye cake idea online. I think it came out pretty good… I did the tie dye and he did the candy decorating. It is colorful!Luke and I continued on with his Unit this week of Goodnight Moon. For art he painted a print out of the moon and stars, and I put together this mobile for him.
For Language we sang the song Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star as he painted it. He picked up the words pretty quick and then wanted to out his little stuffed chick to bed and sand the song to it while lying down on his bed looking at the mobile! Loved it!
This afternoon I washed and rinsed out the long forgotten water table in the basement and made “Goodnight Moon Water” a.k.a: glitter for the shining stars, a foam moon, a foam star, a measuring cup and funnel with scoop. One half of the table blue water, the other half yellow. As he filled the cup, he could and did observe it turning green! Just like the great green room. 😉
Name: Squirrelly Man
Super Powers: Flying, laser eyes and throwing nuts
Liam’s writing of the day wasn’t “colorful” but so fun I had to share, plus he was very proud of his cleverness on this one! 😉
Each week I choose one photo for his to do some creative writing. I found this “superman squirrel” picture and thought he’d get a kick out of it and come up with a good story. He came up with a better idea. He wanted to make it look like a character in his Marvel Encyclopedia and give the squirrel a name and super hero stats!
