Okay, so hopefully I'll be able to update a little more timely from now on! We had a great 1st week! Still waiting for the chalkboard to go up, but I'm keeping my finger's crossed for morning! But, here are a few pictures ... we're all so proud of it!
P's desk area.
The chalkboard will go above the colored baskets.
Our reading are and fun new chair.
Alphabet wallies above the patio door.
Last week we made two Earth Day projects. The first were watercolored bookmarks with a pressed flower. Unfortunately our flowers didn't dry enough (who knew that was possible in the desert?!) and they are turning black. Boo! P watercolored on index cards and then we cut them in half. I found a few cute Earth Day pictures that we taped on and then we laminated them. Cute, but too bad about the flowers LOL
We also made a paper mache globe. We got super messy and had a blast!
P stirring up the "goop".
Finished for the night!
Day 2: painting lots and lots of blue.
Mommy painted (not very well) the continents, but P painted the Arctic Circle and Antarctica (well, he painted where Santa lives and where the penguins live LOL).
And, he finished product, hanging above our reading chair! =)
I'm really hoping that in the future I'll leave myself time to blog more ... still sharing pictures, but actually writing more about our experiences. Anyway ... Happy Learning!
