Around Valentine's Day, Meredith and I worked made our way through the letter D unit. She's quite funny and loves to talk and tell stories while she colors and traces. I will never remember all that she says, but I will remember she did this! ;)
We continued our study on Moses and talked about the parting of the Red Sea. She decided Moses needed to be colored green and like Mackenzie, she loved walking Moses through our sea.
D is for Dolphin in 1+1+1=1's Animal ABC's printables. She loved coloring in the D with the dot markers before cutting out the dolphins.
Tracing (and talking)!
Meredith requested a color by number. (1+1+1=1)
Since it was the week of Valentine's Day we had to do some Valentine's activities. All of the dot marker activities are from Gift of Curiosity.
Over The Big Moon. I printed/laminated them a couple of years ago for Mackenzie, so now we pull them out every year for Valentine's Day.
Coloring! (Gift of Curiosity and 1+1+1=1)
Sweethearts were used, of course! First we sorted by color...
I love watching her connect the pictures! The lines are so curvy! ;) Meredith is getting better at the "Find the Difference" pages, but I love these from Gift of Curiosity because they are a little more obvious which gives her more confidence than other ones we've tried.
We played "roll and draw" with a dice I made. I had never played this with Meredith, so it was great to teach her how to draw certain line types - waves, for instance. She's just started enjoying drawing her own pictures, so this fun for her. She also liked playing with the dinosaur erasers! She matched two of them and then played with the rest. ;)
She likes tracing these books I bought in the Target dollar spot.
I think I shared these with Mackenzie's school post, but we sorted color cards from Homeschool Creations.
