I think we're on to something!

Okay, last week went much better than the first week, and this week has gotten off to a better start!

This week we are learning about the letter B and talking about bears. My main book this week is to be Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See?, but I went to the library this morning (of course on the day I wanted to use it!), and it's checked out. Being the popular book it is, I thought surely Wal-Mart would have it. No luck. So I checked with the preschool director at church...she told me where her stash was and I looked through it. Probably all the Eric Carl books except the Brown Bear one! The good news is that she is going to ask her husband if I can borrow one from his school!

So, on we went with the bear theme. Here are some pictures from our day!

The girls had teddy bear and letter B sandwhiches for lunch.




Mary Helen did a gummy bear sort, then as she was eating them, we did simple adding and subtracting (If you had six green bears, and you ate two, how many are left? How many green and red bears do you have all together?)



Here are some pictures of the beginning of our lapbook. Mary Helen will add to it along the way this week. I'll show the finished product at the end of the week.

Looks like they are having a great time. Thanks for the idea of blogging about school. I am gonna try it. Then maybe my family will actually think I educate my children! LOL

It looks like you're doing a great job! I don't think I'd ever be able to come up with all those activities. Very creative! And of course, your girls are absolutely adorable!
