It's Friday, again! Time is just flying by! It seems like yesterday was Monday. But, Friday means another recap of school! Sorry for those of you that this doesn't interest.
Monday was a holiday here in Mexico. It was Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe. So, Jorge was off work that day. That kind of threw the whole week off. But, we got back on track and got some of our school work done.
Today we were working on reviewing the letters that we have learned. The curriculum focuses on one letter a week. Since we are on week 4, we are at letter "D". Writing the lower case "b" and "d" throws the girls off. I need to find a trick to teach them so they can remember the correct way to write them.
Today we did a little craft project. We made a reindeer! The girls traced their hands (I had to help Emily with that part.) and I cut out their traced hands. We used a red pom pom for the nose, a wiggly eye, a tail, a pipe cleaner for the antlers, and some construction paper and glitter to make a collar.
I have some self-adhesive magnets that we added to the back and now we have a couple festive magnets to hang on the refrigerator!
It seems like, at this age, doing crafts with the girls is more work for me than them! But, they had fun and that is what is important.
