Letter Ee - day 2

In the first box there were several activities that he and I did together.  At first we used the sandpaper letters, and Lakeshore Learning Letter Sounds Tub, and several printable worksheets from LOTW.


This one was the most fun of the day.  We made the puzzle of the elephant and then I had him dictate a story on the same page.  His story was filled with baby elephants getting lost and then being found again by his mother and father… It was SO cute! 


Box #2 was a dot to dot that only used 1 - 10.


Box #3 was Beginning Sounds Bingo.  He knew quite a few of them and best of all, he won!


Box #4 was the Leapfrog Letter Factory fridge letters.


Box #5 was the Montessori fine motor skills activity with tongs.


Box #6 was a number recognition skills worksheet where he had to cut out the numbers and put them in the proper order.  This was the first time that I had him work with scissors without my help.  He did really well!


Box #7 was the Fall Ecojournal.  Once again, I can’t recommend these books enough!  We are not using them every week for this curriculum but I am sure that we will go back to them again and again through out the seasons for some really neat activities. 


Today was studying a fall fern and the spores on the underside of the leaf.


Box #6 was a color mixing activity. 


These were just old droppers I had on hand that I filled with water and food coloring.  Then I added tiny white bowls and he was off and coloring.  He loved it so much that when he was done with his work he went back and did this activity some more.


Box #8 was Oops & Oopsie cards for a bit of Yoga.


Box #10 was a counting book called “Ten Dogs in the Window”.


After this last box today we went to the library and got a few more books on the Autumn season.  It was a great homeschool day!
