Week of December 2: Y is for Yarn and Z is for Zoo and Zebra

This week we finished our alphabet!  Here our some of the fun adventures for the week:

G using the glue stick to glue yellow yarn to the Y is for Yarn booklet. (Yellow yarn and purple gluestick color knowledge)

B had to cut and paste the yarn to follow dotted line paths where indicated, which was an awesome motor skills activity! 

We had a measurement lesson on what piece was longest, shortest, and the same size.

We worked on a Clifford lesson with Daddy!  B wrote words from the story (man, noodle, song, hug), picked out the letters to spell out "holiday," chose pictures that didn't belong in a certain group, and used rhyming to help him figure out the word.

G named each color of the crayon he picked up to color and we all sang the "Alphabet Song."

G and Daddy working on Clifford together.

Daddy likes helping with homeschool on his days off :)

Letter Z for Zebra and Zoo booklet - color, cut and paste booklet with "Z" words.  B also used popsicle sticks to make the letter "Z."

Gamma left this week to go visit my brother and his family for Christmas but I got a cool picture of all of us out for a walk.  Not too long after this, some kids showed up and the boys got to play football and run around with them for almost an hour!  They had a blast!

It's not December without Elf on the Shelf!  Here he is playing football with the toys and a piece of candy for the football!

Naughty elf!  Turned the milk green but Googs loved "Elf Milk" as he called it!

My Mom got a cool "Elf on the Shelf" puzzle for the boys so we caught our elf, Chippey one morning trying to put it together!

It was Grandma's birthday this week so we all got together to celebrate!  Happy Birthday, Grandma :)
Daddy and Mommy got a night out to talk to Santa about Christmas and for our anniversary that will be this Christmas!  While we were out, the boys got a special night with just Grandma and Grandpa so they did puzzles and read books with them.
Books read this week:
"The Elf on the Shelf" by: Carol V. Aebersold

"If You Give a Pig a Pancake" by:

Chapter 18 in 100 Lessons - read Sam is mad at me and answered comprehension questions.
Writing - m, a, z, card, man, noodle, song, hug
and lessons. 
Bible studies in "The Story:"
Chapter 24 "Jesus the Teacher" - Jesus telling the story of the good Samaritan helping the man who got robbed and about being a good neighbor, even after a priest and leader in the church passed by the man.
Chapter 25 - " Jesus and the Little Children" - Jesus' disciples telling the children to let Jesus rest and Jesus saying that we should all enter the gates of heaven as innocent and childlike like the children.
Good stories this week that even Momma needed to hear.  It is good to be forgiving, even when people hurt you.  Jesus gave us the ultimate sacrifice, his life so that we would be forgiven for our sins.  I feel God has been reaching me through my emails lately! (made me think of the movie, Bruce Almighty lol)  All of my email devotionals and lessons and stories this week were focused on forgiveness.  This is a very hard concept for us because going through hurt makes us want to stay mad and not forgive but it is good to forgive and that is what the lesson is for this week from God I feel. 
Have a blessed week :)
