Mondays are so fun having all three girls home. Molly goes to school Tuesdays through Fridays so Mondays are her home school days. The girls love helping me think of ideas to for along with the theme of the week. Last week she did many fun, farm activities so I decided to continue with the farm theme for today. Here are a few she enjoyed exploring:
Here was something new we tried. I printed out a picture of a sheep and then traced it onto a piece of contact paper. I hung it on the wall sticky side out and game Molly some cotton balls. She loved covering her sheep with “wool”.
I gathered all our farm books for her to look through. She has so many books and seems to forget some when they just stay in her bookshelf. I like to pull some out for her each week so she remembers some of her long lost favorites.
Her weekly Discovery box is always a favorite. I usually put her 8 year old sister Emily in charge of putting these together. She loves creating these and plays with them almost as much as Molly does.
I found these word puzzles at Target for $3.00 and they have been great. I pulled out about 5 that had to do with farms for her. I love hearing her stretching these words out to spell.
For her pocket chart activity I wrote out 4 farm animal names along with a picture of each animal. First, she had to match the correct word with each picture. Then I rewrote the name of each animal and cut it between each letter to make a puzzle. I mixed up the letters and had her put them back in the right order next to the name that I had written.
Molly loves to cut and glue things so I always try to give her some sort of worksheet for her to do that with. This week I found this beginning sound match paper. She decided to join her sister on the trampoline to finish her work.
