Two more days and the kids are still settling into the routine of Daddy leaving each day and this is him leaving around lunchtime. The following week is going to take further adjustment! But it is a good adjustment.
So in the meantime I am packing our days with learning… and while the kids are not always on board we are seeing progress in many things. Just need to get science pushed on into our weekly schedule on a more regular basis. I cannot wait until it is warm enough to order our ants. We did get our time in on a special two part Wild Kratts. Dolphins AND Blowfish. I think we all learned a bit!
There was some spontaneous paper crafting with all 4 of our big kids… they made crowns!
And then Trinity and Emanuel took the stickers Aunty Karyn brought for us from Dollarama and made special space pictures…
Add in the boardgames and we played our way to education.
Oh and the progress on Gavin’s Lego hour creation!!!
I treated myself to another snack thanks to Karyn – beloved Cheezies… bliss!!!!
On Wednesday we celebrated another month of reading… Emanuel got his first pizza coupon for working each day on sounding out and writing out a new word. I am so proud of their progress! This Pizza Hut sponsored program is great!!
But before that lovely dinner we had a few things to accomplish… Starting with a more simplified how to from Art for Kids – a ladybug, note Zander’s hand holding his!
Gavin spent some quality time with his baby sister playing HER version of Skylanders… some sort of weird noised back and forth with various figures that would then end up in the line again!
And then there is our scissors practice – Trinity is getting rather pro with her S snake from Activity Village!!
And to round off our creativity Zander made a rather amazing sailing pirate ship out of Legos!
It feels good to see them independently create a little more! And to see some passion in our work.
