It's been a week since I last posted. Things have gotten crazy in our house - one with a fever, then the other. Good sleep habits replaced with not-so-good sleep habits. I'm a tired Mommi! It took us 2 weeks to do the letter 'G'... probably for the same reasons that I haven't really posted in the last week. Just too much going on. Well, I'm back (I hope), so here are a couple pics from our letter 'G' adventures.
Zayit actually finished his upper case G all by himself... and it looked pretty good! I always set out the printable with the correct number of tiles so it is a self-correcting task.
He got a little creative this time with his Power Magnets... gave his lower case G a "frame."
Our paper plate craft this week was a giraffe. I tried to come up with a hard sounding G paper plate craft, but was sadly unsuccessful, so giraffe it was. I think they came out cute. This is the first craft that required multiple steps. I wasn't sure if it would go smoothly, but it actually worked out well. It was perfect for Zayit's short attention span. First we painted our plates yellow, then let them dry. While they were drying, we went outside. When we came back in, it was time to paint/stamp brown dots, then we let those dry.
After some more outside play, we came in and glued on our giraffe parts...
Here's a post that contains all the printables we used this week. Enjoy!
