Both kids colored a cover page for our lapbook binder.
We made a "fun" paper bear, with interchangeable clothes. This seemed like a good idea at the time, however a paper bear, with paper tabs that hold the clothes on, and a four year old are not good ideas. The clothes didn't stay on well and he was thoroughly annoyed at the bear pretty much every time I took him out.
We talked about eating healthy, just like Jesse Bear does in the book.
We played a fun rhyming words game.
Since it is fall, I found some fun fall activities and printed them out. He never tires of dot paint.
We labeled the parts of a pumpkin. Who knew a pumpkin had a brain?
After nap time the kids went outside to play.
This was actually borderline science! He had to describe the pumpkin: how it felt, how it looked, did it smell? etc. and then circle the correct answers.
William has his numbers down! (Finally!) Here he had to count the number of pumpkins and circle the correct number.
More pre-writing, which is quite simple for him, but he loves doing these sheets. When he's finished with them he usually grabs his scissors and cuts along the lines.
Call me slow, but I just figured out that we can use the Scrabble tiles for this activity, instead of me tediously cutting out little squares of lettered paper! Yah me!
I don't do a lot of patterns with William (I have no idea why not) but this week we did a lot of them. He gets the whole idea of patterns, but was a little confused as to why I would want to put colored leaves in a line in the first place.
