B Week: Two Bears and Fine Motor Skills

I've been homeschooling Sweet Lily Girl but of course Little Miss Ava Grace can not be left out.  At 4 and 2 our lessons are not to in depth as you can imagine but lots of "preschool" fun.

Each month has a theme such as The Human Body, Space, Earth, Ocean, Seasons/Weather, Animals and Bugs etc. You get the idea.  Each week we focus on a letter and a number.  These pictures are from week 2 of the school year.  The letter B and the number 1. (week one was the number 0).

We made Bears.  Little Miss Ava Grace's lasted all of 20 min hanging on the refrigerator before she pulled all the parts back off again.  The template we used is from this great site.  It has a lot of great resources especially for hand writing and coloring pages.

For a fine motor skills exercise we used cotton Balls and tongs and the girls moved the cotton balls from one container to another.  I'm always amazed at how long such a simple activity can be entertaining.

Yes that is a bruise.  Foreheads and door molding are not meant to come into contact with great speed.

  1. I do like the "bruise" pic because of her smile and hands in her armpits!!
