Letter of the week – L

We started our letter L week learning about lemons and limes.

Then we made fresh squeezed lemonade. As I squeezed the lemons, Molly had fun transferring the rinds back and forth. I tried to turn it into a counting lesson, but she was only interested in transferring and pouring.

Molly loved her fresh squeezed lemonade. I realized that squeezing lemons by hand was harder than I thought it would be. Next time, I'll find a better way!

We started learning our lowercase letters with this matching game I found at Homeschool Creations.

We worked on fine motor skills with these lacing activities. The beads kept her busy for over half an hour!

A few non-L things:

Molly got these picture puzzle blocks from her Aunt 'Chelle last Christmas and has finally learned how to match the puzzle on her own.

We needed a place to hang some of Molly's crafts, so this was my solution. I think I might need some more walls soon.

    seriously, Jen…can you talk to the parents of the students I teach?!? You are doing such an amazing job of preparing Molly for a lifetime of learning. Are you considering home-schooling (sorry if you’ve already mentioned that on your blog). You are off to a great start!! Way to go. Thanks also for your encouragement on my adventures in running!
