Each week i will produce a run down of our week's activities, all of which are covered in greater detail in my blog.
So here goes!
We also took a nature walk around our neighbourhood to spot and photograph all the flowers we could see. Henry loves using my digital SLR..although its a little big for him at present. I got the photos developed and we are now working through them and doing a piece of art and a few lines about each flower to put in our nature journal.
We had a great trip to the aquarium in Chicago this week. I love getting out and about, and Chicago has so many great places to see and do.
We started to develop our recognition of letters and words with a simple activity. Placing flower shapes with letters on at the top of stems to create words. We started with Henry's name then moved onto words with strong letter sounds.
We also did a fun measuring activity. I stuck pictures of sunflowers to the wall at different heights and Henry measured each in number of ladybugs (on the tape). We concluded by measuring each other.
