Helping mix muffins.
Taking over the breading of the eggplant for our yummy eggplant parmesan sticks. She likes hers in honey or yogurt dip. They are deliciously crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside and don’t taste like eggplant at all!
Ladling with her new mini ladle.
Preparing Bento style snacks. Cookie cutters are fun to use:)
Loves the paper cutter.
Nuts and bolts.
Jumping over the phonograms Mommy called out.
Bear sometimes completely takes me away by stubbornly deciding just what she wants to do. It was 7:00 and bedtime and she started playing with the farm. She saw my noun labels and just absolutely – wouldn’t take a “tomorrow, Bear,” as an answer – had to write her own labels. I decided to follow her lead and push bedtime back a bit. She used the sandpaper letters to help her with formation and we listened for the sounds in each word together. Notice she chose to write “bunny” and not “rabbit.” “Not rabbit, I call them bunny,” she told me.
(sorry about the blur)
She did all 6 of them in a row and wanted to keep going but it was by now almost 8:00.
The bead stair.
The new hundred board. The magnetic hundred board is now on the fridge. We need to work on the teens some more. She can count fine rote 1 to 20, but in isolation can’t name them.
We did two Paul Klee projects (one of which Bear initiated herself) that will be posted in a couple of weeks. (I got ahead so I could schedule a bunch of posts for the Artists and Art linky in case we couldn’t get to art one week.)
