2016 Week 3 Pete the Cat, Letters Ff-Jj

Okay, just so you know your child's teacher was just 20 miles south of Canada at 4:00 pm on Sunday!
That's a new kind of crazy for us!
We are backpacking the entire 300 mile Superior Hiking Trail (in sections!)  This was my hubby's first hike since breaking his leg in July.  We only went 10 miles~my kind of hike!(as opposed to the 15-20 we usually do!)
I go for the Lake and rock picking!
So we made it back to Minnesota in the wee hours of the morning Monday...ready to hit the week with a smile!


Monday began with new morning challenges:
Shape sorting...


  Letter Matching...

I brought back "new" rocks for us to explore!

 On Monday we also did a FFFFFizzing Experiment for 
letter Ff and our first scientific experience!

 Baking soda and vinegar is almost magical!
 We also journaled "start with a feather" for letter Ff.

Talk to your little one about this as they will not be able to go to the office once the bell rings to purchase items. 
The high school kids who are selling those items are already gone by that time.

WELCOME!
