Feel like all it's been is a celebrations. Got cookies & a duffel bag @ work. Naters & SteverWeaver got me gift cards (JoAnns, & Michaels) and a beautiful wind chime for our deck. Got in some coupon shopping this last week. Got Naters the Melissa & Doug chalkboard/Dry Erase Board, Leap Frog Fridge Phonics,
Learning Resources Piece-a-Pizza fractions game, a zoo game, and some other goodies. I've been printing & laminating again. Went through a brand new color cartridge for my printer in under two days. Have to admit though, i did print about 200 pages of heavily colored materials. Tonight i hope to get a lot of cutting done. then I will be done with A, B & C of Erica's Letter of the Week Curriculum. It's a work in progress for sure, but i keep plugging away. I'm surprised how quickly Naters is learning her alphabet. When we use her letters, I keep having her trace them with her index finger; i think that has really helped imprint the letters for her! I read about the technique on a Montessori blog somewhere.
She's waking up from her nap, gotta go!
