Letter of the week – R

We made an R for rabbit. At dinner that night, Molly was asked what letter she made. She responded with "R," and then when asked what animal it was she excitedly answered, "A bunny!"

This project took a few days to complete. Molly didn't quite grasp the idea of coloring the entire rainbow arch the correct color. She just wanted to color the number. She eventually came back to it and at least got half the rainbow colored.

Molly worked on her fine motor skills by lacing beads on to pipe cleaners,

then we arched them to make our own bead rainbow!

We met some friends at Rita's Italian Ice for a sweet treat during R week. Allison's Italian ice must not have been enough; looks like she wants a taste of Molly's custard too!

We ended our week working on some math skills. First we did rainbow clip counting,

then worked on rainbow size sorting. Molly did really well comparing the sizes of the rainbows so we could put them in order.

This week I also hosted a playdate to make felt flower hair clips so that we were all ready to show our pretty May flowers! These girls sure do love each other!
