Monday we did the first of our Fall days by doing another Apple day.
|We did the Apple Tree Felt Game from Iowa Farmer's Wife, but I changed it up a little. I wrote A-E on the apples. Then, I called out a letter and Jason put all of the apples with that letter on them into the tree. He did really well.|
|I finally picked up some bingo markers from Dollar Tree, so the boys were able to do Do-A-Dot pages for the first time. THEY LOVED IT!!! Seriously, it was quite a hit.|
|Completing a trace and color page.|
|Working on the Stuffed Lacing Apple. I had them paint a lunch bag, then stuff it with tissue paper. Then I punched holes and they laced it shut.|
I have no recollection of Tuesday and no pictures, except that I do remember making masking tape letters on the tile and having the boys drive their cars along them, use them as balance beams, and move to the correct one when I called out a letter or sound.
Wednesday we had a lot of fun doing review activities and we breezed through almost every single on that I had planned.
|We did the Tactile Letters Craft, just B-D (I didn't have any elbow macaroni and I figured we did enough A on Monday). We did beans for B, cotton for C and dots for D. My ten-year-old wanted to do it, too. Good sensory play :)|
|I gave Jason a set of alphabet cards and a set of letter magnets. I asked him to set out the cards, then put the letter magnet on the matching card. For each letter, I named it and made the sound and had him copy me.|
|Inspired by this pin, I made pages with letters on it, and a legend and asked Jason to cover each letter with the correct colored dot.|
|For Justin, I made pages with the same letter on it and had him cover the letter with a colored dot.|
|Similar to the Clothespin Matching Game, I cut off the bumpy part of a paper plate, then wrote the letters we were reviewing around the circle multiple times. Then I wrote the same letters on colored dots and attached each one to a clothespin. Jason matched the letter on the clothespin to the letter on the paper plate|
|More Do-A-Dot pages. These are great for hand-eye coordination.|
Friday is our longer chapel day, then when we came home, I let the boys play computer games. I'm awesome that way. Seriously, though, I had run out of things to do, so it worked. Jason did do some of his leftover tracer pages.
Overall it was a great week and I can't wait for all the fun we are going to have next week on the letter F!
