This week we worked on the letter F and we had a lot of fun with it! This week we took a pretty awesome field trip to go with our letter F fun.
F is for Fizz – I poured baking soda on a plate and gave C a syringe full of vinegar. He sprayed the baking soda and watched it fizz. Needless to say, he had a blast with it.
F is for Friends – We invited over all the neighborhood friends and let them have a whole evening of fun in the back yard. We also talked about what it means to be a good friend.
F is for Frogs – Apparently I have a whole slew of tadpoles in my backyard. C has enjoyed going out every day to check on them and make sure they are well.
F is for Fur – We went online and Googled all of the different animals we could find with fur. We talked about mammals and how mammals have fur.
F is for Fireman – We baked up a great batch of cookies and headed to the local fire station.
We met this fireman as he was getting ready to go to school. He was so kind to stop and take a picture with R and C. I think C is more focused on the cookie though.
Both children were so excited for their new hats! They are still playing with them.
The kids were even allowed to get in the fire truck. This is the fire man we met telling C and R all about the items in the truck.
C begged me to get this picture. He wanted everyone to know that the tire was as big as him.
Are you Eggcited for the letter E this week? We had so much fun with the letter E this week. It turns out E is for Elf, Eyes, Ears, Elephants, and Eggs!
- E is for Eyes/Ears – For this we went on Google Images and checked out all kinds of big ears. You would be surprised how many animals have big ears and how many have very tiny ones. We did the same thing with eyes. We also played music loud and then quietly to see how our ears hear.
- E is for Elf. – This was a request by R. I added it to the board but we didn’t do much besides drawing an elf.
- E is for Elephants – I went online with C and we looked up Elephants and how they behave. It was fun to pretend to be elephants!
- E is for Egg – My aunt has chickens so we went on a field trip to her house. Here is a bit of the fun we had learning about eggs. You can easily do the same by visiting a local farm or find someone selling organic chicken eggs and ask if you can come out with the kids to see their chickens.
This is one of the girls who did all the hard work.
C was having a lot of fun clucking and chicken dancing at the chicken.
This isn’t her egg but she was laying as well.
C really loved looking in the laying box.
C pulled the fresh egg out of the box. He was so intrigued by it. Sadly it was dropped so it became a bigger teaching tool.
R learned that the egg is warm when it is first lain. She was able to feel the difference in fresh food and store bought.
R was able to peel and prepare the corn for the chickens. She made sure to throw it in and they went crazy!
R and C poured in the cracked corn for the girls.
