I am getting all prepped for next week. I decided that we are going to pick a couple of books a week to do extra learning activities with. The books for this week are 'If You Give A Mouse A Cookie' and 'Runaway Bunny.' I choose this one because my aunt gave Madison a treasury book that includes this story. It has a CD with the author's narration and a couple of songs for each of the stories. At the end of each story it also includes some recipes and learning activities. I have also found some good resources on Pinterest and from my Story Stretchers Book. Each week I am going to give her options for morning free play. She can choose to do whichever options her heart desires. :) I do not let her watch much TV. I am not found of it at all. Last week I let her watch one episode of SuperWhy. I also limit her iPad use to 20 minutes a week as well. I have found that when I let her watch TV or play electronics that she looses all interest in learning and playing and is constantly begging as if she's addicted so now it's once a week and that's it.
I am looking forward to a great week! We are going to be doing our regular weekly events:
- Preschool Time at the Lewisville Library
- Swimming Lessons at Aqua Kids
- Passport to Imagination Crafts at Michaels
- Kids Yoga at Yogi Kids
- Developmental Team gymnastics class at Best Gymnastics
- Clue Finders Program at the Lewsiville Library
- Kids Ballet and Tap at Sacred Ground Dance
We are going to finish reading What Your Preschooler Should Know. It is a GREAT book that has stories, songs, history, science and more!
We also should finish up the BrainQuest cards for ages 4 -5 years.
And we are working on sight words. I found this great colorful set for free on Pinterest from education.com!
I was able to complete her room organization. I still have some laundry to put away before I post pics of the closet, but here are the hair bows and her new dress up area in her room:
|Here is the before picture of all of her hair accessories|
|And the after..I put them in bead sorter boxes from Michaels. We ended up having a total of 4!|
|Here Madison is sorting her jewelry. She had it dumped together in several little conatiners.|
|Here it is sorted in little pockets. This organizer hangs up in the closet and is two sided.|
And...Madison lost her 3rd tooth today! The front left one. It is going to take some getting used to for both of us! LOL
