Week 30 Letter Ee, star word 'said', and Seasons!

Wow! What a fast busy week!
We began with math manipulatives for our
morning challenges.  
We built, sorted, counted, and stacked!
What a great way to start the day!



We are working individually with our 
High School helper, Marah!
This addition page was the first thing she supervised.
Nice...got to remember to snap a pic of her and the k kids next week!

During Monday's independent work time, 
we created these lovely book covers 
for Thursday's homework...
I Can Sing a Rainbow...

Monday afternoon we created these 
crazy RAINBOW hair portraits!
More pics later in this blog...

The Family Projects are lovely!




I brought the kids back a handful of seashells
to choose from...I LOVED the beach!

Tuesday's centers included the following:
Painting a rainbow...


a science experiment called "Huff and Puff"
How many puffs of air to move objects?
Why did it take more breaths for some?
Great data collection and thinking skills....

still lifes....and learned a poem about them!
