Peanut absolutely loved this week’s book and activities. We spent the week with the book “But No Elephants” and it was a huge hit! Peanut learned the sight word “no”, and how to print the letter “E”.
We learned to act out the story with stick puppets, how to sort animals from the smallest to the largest, what each pet did to help Grandma Tildy, and touched on the concept of needs vs. wants.
For math, Peanut was introduced to the geoboard. He learned how to create pictures from shapes – he even made a farmhouse without any instruction! We also began to add numbers by 1’s and 2’s. I’m not sure if the number line is helping or hindering… I may try to add in some more basic addition practice.
As a reward for a very hard three weeks, we went to the beach Friday evening to just relax by the ocean. Peanut and his brother Popeye enjoyed playing in the sand, finding crab holes, and just plain making memories. Hubby and I enjoyed the laughter, ocean breeze, and I of course had to dip my toes in the water at least once, and it was warm and wonderful. I actually wish I brought my swimsuit to bathe!
