Our Story

My 2 1/2 year old has wanted to go to school since our neighbor gave him a brand new spongebob back pack. Unfortunately none of the preschools in our area take non-potty trained 2 year olds, so I looked into it a little bit, and decided to try a little improv homeschooling with some preschool curriculum I found online, and a great book that was reccommended at La Leche League. Join us on our journey!

Last Week, in reverse order

We did some gardening. A month or so ago we planted yellow squash, lettuce, basil, parsley, chives, rosemary, tomatoes, peppers, and cilantro. Here you can see the squash is thriving. We're not even sure what everything else is. Next year we will label what we plant!

We learned that plants need water to grow...wait Moose, we have to turn the hose on first!

We've been doing story time & then a related art project. Our favorite book so far is "How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?" by Jane Yolen & Mark Teague. Last night we read this book 4 times! (Appropriate since the doctor gave us some medicine that Moose is not fond of, so he's learning from the dinosaurs that you have to be good & take your medicine if you want to get better!)

then our related art project- a Diplodocus (we've become very fond of just slamming the markers into the paper- it's Moose's trademark)

Here Moose is learning about the letter F:
Also last week, we read Noah's ark in our toddler Bible, and then we did an art project with stickers!
Apparently the Elephants didn't quite make it on board the ark, and the monkeys are flying over it...creative liscense ;)

And only 1 zebra made it- since for some reason the sticker pack came with 2 of everything except the zebra. Our work with the flash cards is paying off, as Moose was able to tell me that the rain was blue- even though it was light blue, and he's used to seeing royal blue when we talk about the color blue.
