We began the week by learning that S is for Sun. When getting my craft supplies ready for the day I somehow forgot to get out yellow paint. We had finished the craft before I realized that we were supposed to paint our plates yellow first. Oh well.

For lunch we had these strawberry sunshine sandwiches.
My boys have been asking me for weeks when we were going to learn about snakes. If you know me at all then you know that I have a phobia of snakes. It's bad! I had planned our snake day for Tuesday and had David ready to jump in to read and show videos to the boys. Well, David ended up going to the village on Tuesday and was gone all day long. That meant I had to suck it up and be a good teacher, ha. So, in spite of my dislike for the subject we covered it well.
We started the day with these snake/ letter S shaped pumpkin pancakes. Cruz said they looked more like the number 5. I told him to use his imagination.

Last week we also learned about sailboats, stingrays, and seals. I use the Abeka Art for K5 book. One of the worksheets was to draw a sailboat. I drew one step by step on the dry erase board and Cruz had to follow what I was doing. I thought his drawing turned out great!

On Wednesday we learned about tails and turtles
Thursday was all about tigers (my boys favorite animal of all)

We also learned about tractors on Thursday. That was a fun theme!
Friday was our turkey day and we began with this turkey themed breakfast.

I love these hand print turkeys we made!
In math last week we focused on counting and writing to 20 and began skip counting by two. Here is Cruz skip counting with our flashcards.

Science was fun. We learned about clouds. Our main idea was that clouds are made from water vapor. We did an experiment called "Cloud In A Bag" to discover how clouds form. Cruz really liked it.

Later we did a Fluffy Clouds project. Cruz had to paint a page in his workbook sky blue and then take cotton balls to form cloud shapes that he saw. Here is his page.
