Happy Friday all! Just wanted to end the week with a new feature - every Friday I will be posting activities we have done in the previous week - all related to a theme. This is our newest "home school" adventure as we dive into helping Little C and her possible speech delays. We are striving to enhance her learning by repeating many common words and working on basic concepts such as colors, numbers, shapes, etc. Big C will also be way involved and so far is loving the play based nature of this schooling! So without further ado our first theme: Bears.
We started the week by reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Then we reenacted the story too many times to count...seriously more than 20 times. We had different sized bowls, spoons, Tupperware, they used different sized pillows for beds and we all took turns playing different characters (we actually played this everyday for the whole week). So fun!
Another day we had a teddy bear picnic and the girls got to eat lunch with a whole lot of teddy bears. We read the story Teddy Bears' PicnicChildren's Bear Books) and sang a song.
I also made three bears of differing sizes for the the girls to 1. order by size and 2. reenact the stories again. Alas Mama Bear is missing and we can't find her - the girls loved these guys and played with them all week so it is no surprise that one of them went missing (I am guessing it is under Little C's bed as she had been trying to take them to sleep with her - gotta check there tomorrow).
