3rd week of September: G is for Goat and H is for Hippo!

B's writing skills!  (M,A, S, E, J, 3, Q, O)

I saw a cool game on Pinterest (Great Math Idea!) practicing math by choosing the correct answer on a toothpick and then sticking it into the right equation.  I got out the counting bears and showed the boys 1+1 and 1+2 up to 1+12 so they got to see that there are 12 eggs in a dozen and they had a blast sticking the toothpicks into the empty egg carton!

Capital A and lowercase a
Capital E and lowercase e

We made a trip to the library so there were new books to read!  Among them was, "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" and we learned about letter G this week and G is for Goat so we did a booklet called Goats Garage and there were cut and paste activities for the boys with the letter G on them.

Little brother practicing his prewriting skills just like big brother!

We went to Grandmas who let us borrow lots of fall themed books from her library so the boys and I have lots of reading for this week and next! 

H is for Hippo!  What better way to learn about the letter H then to play Hungry Hippos!  After the game, B was able to write a perfect H, no copywork needed!
