As such, this has been a quiet "school" week. Normally I would share their weekly posts separately, because they are at very different stages, but I just don't have a lot of pictures, so I am combining them.
Emory is 30 months old
Elliott is 5 years old
Elliott has spent a little time playing different apps on the iPod, including Teach Me Kindergarten. Both boys also enjoyed a couple of episodes of LeapFrog on Netflix this week.
We are still enjoying many readings. You can take A Peek at our Bookshelf to see just a few of the boys' other picks this week.
We did have a couple special Valentine's lunches and snacks this week.
There was some puzzle play.
Elliott worked on writing the alphabet.
He also did a letter 'E' maze.
Elliott has decided he wants to learn about dinosaurs, so we are taking advantage of a homeschool discount to visit the Creation Museum since they have an exhibit on dinosaurs too. I'm in the process of planning a few dinosaur related-activities for next week, but for now, I've changed his Pre-Writing Notebook to include a few mazes and other activities that are somewhat related to dinosaurs.
Emory worked on his own school work beside his brother.
Emory also spent a lot of time playing with his Melissa and Doug Animal Stacking Blocks and talking about the animals.
I did add a new storage cart to our school/playroom this week. I haven't started utilizing it the way I have planned yet, but I am hoping it will help me get more organized and lessen the amount of time I am scurrying around to gather supplies.
There was a lot of imaginative play this week too! My storage cart was delivered in a large box...I think it was a ship, a villain and who knows what else?
Getting ready to blast off in my suitcase is a favorite whenever we're preparing for a trip.
Update: We're back from our mini-vacation and had a great time. Check out our visit to the Creation Museum and the Newport Aquarium!
