Valentine's gifts

These were Naters Valentine's gifts.  We opted to go non-food.  We are also working big on her with sharing.  She really wants to go to Chuck E Cheese; so I told her if she has 20 days of sharing her things ( we will mark it on the calendar) then i'll take her to Chuck E Cheese. 
She got a book "A Very Special Hug", some princess rings & necklaces, Hello Kitty Bingo, Dinosaur Train Pop N Race game (Like Trouble), and a Wooden Matching puzzles set for Opposites (similar to Learning Resources Match-ups).  I think she'll like the book and the dinosaur game best!

Valentine's week

Naters has really enjoyed The Letter V from Erica's Letter of the Week Curriculum.  I also got her a carpet this week, so she'd have a more defined work space than just the entire floor.  She really seems to like the
idea, and was asking what work she does at her desk and what will she do on her rug.  Playdoh, she does at her table (i have an office chair mat under her table so the playdoh doesnt get in the carpet--It works great!)

for her poke pad, I took two foam pads for stamping and hot glued them together giving her a about 1" thick padded surface to do her poking on.  She calls it her poke pad.  But needless to say it's so thick she won't poke through it and i feel comfortable with her doing her poke work at her desk, table, or carpet!
Thanks for looking!

V is for Valentine's Letter of the week work

Naters is 41 months oldMonday we started with Valnetine's inspired actiities in her workboxes.  This week we are doing Erica's Letter of the Week Curriculum Natalie is really enjoying this week.  She did tell me she is getting bored with the do a dot marker stuff though, hmmm.  I'm very happy with her scissor work and her pre writing skills.  She's really come a long way since we started preschool at home this past fall!  With the bottle cap picture you see two letters off to the side.  when i put the letters in the bowl for Naters', I usually include two extra letters that she doesn't need so she has to think and not just do a matching exercise.  She does very well with it.  I'm happy she is letting me takes pics of her school work.  She will even say, "take a picture for your scrapbook"  I LUV IT!

Next week, the plan is to do Michelle's Valentine's Day pack
Thanks for looking!
