4th week of September: I is for Insect and J is Jack (and the Beanstalk!)

Boys had a busy week this week with friends!  We had a playdate with their friend and Aunt on Tuesday and then we had cousins over for a sleepover party last night!  I noticed I haven't been posting every single thing we do because its all in my teacher's book the lessons plans we do for the week but I post the things that we had the most fun with!

G is doing awesome with colors!  He picked out all the right answers on a Dora episode and for 2 1/2 years old, he impresses his Momma everyday!  He worked with the color blocks and is also showing more interest in puzzles. 

Both the boys know how to count from 1 to 10 and B showed me he can count to 100 by 10's from playing ABCmouse with his cousin, so I am going to work more with him on this because that was awesome! 

 
J is for Jack and the Beanstalk!  I found a cute printable from pre-kpages.com (http://www.pre-kpages.com/fairytales/) and laminated them and put some Velcro so they would stick on the flannel board and the boys decided to put on a play for me, just like that!  I recorded a video on my cell phone!
 
The children's ministry at our church has been putting on puppet shows for the them so they wanted Mommy to be the audience and put on their own puppet show!
 
We read a cute Jack and the Beanstalk book by Nina Crews that we borrowed from the library!  It was a very cute modern day telling of the story.  They also got to watch video of Jack and the Beanstalk on YouTube.
 

 
B playing with the "magic beans" and the characters in the play.

 
There were some great ideas from the pre-kpages.com and I tried one out for "magic beans" (aka pom poms!) It was great practice with G for colors and I asked B what things could he think of that could grow with the colors he picked up.  I think they had more fun throwing the magic beans then anything! :)



 
We made a I is for Insect booklet page with cut and paste and I asked B to write the letters on the back and look how perfect!  No copywork needed; he just wrote it!
 
Daddy had a day off this week and helped B with lessons on ABCmouse and also with Awanas homework, which I loved!  It is great that he is able to get involved with the boys and help them with their lessons also!
 
We had a fun day outside (after 4 days straight of rain!) on Friday so we reviewed our letters with sidewalk chalk and played Hopscotch and counted from 1 to 10!  We also blew bubbles and took a walk and read lots of our library books!
