Life has been hectic with my two girls recently, haven’t even posted our Cinderella day yet. I think that was my daughters favorite theme day yet. I have so many pictures from that day, and I plan on writing about it soon.
For today here is a small idea of something to do with kids who don’t go to school yet, but are wanting to learn. I have searched many BLOGs for ideas, and we have created our own “school days”. I have a lot of planned projects, and other activities to teach my daughter things in a fun way. She was really excited for our ” segool” days. Haha. I love the way they pronounce words at this age.
After we fill in the calendar for the day, we read a book that goes with our theme of the week. This week we are doing “about me” and “feelings”. So today we read, Today I Feel Silly; by Jamie Lee Curtis.
After we read it I made feeling puppets and we sang, “if your happy and you know it”, using mad, sad,happy,and scared. I was shocked that she knew what each emotion was.
We also did a simple about me project and I had cut out each letter of her name, and took a picture of her signing the letter. We are big Signing Time fans. I also had her lay down on paper, and I traced her. She colored in her hair, and clothes and drew her face. She did pretty good.for being two.
The last thing we did just for fun was made some fall decorations, and put them up on the window.
She had fun making projects and learning new things. I had fun learning new songs, and fun ways to teach her. I also have a theme day planned, so hopefully that will happen soon.
