Lessons & Lapbook
Simon mastered his letters and sounds a few months ago, so we are no longer making the letter lapbooks. We will simply stick the letter art pages in his ABC binder to fill in the gaps.
Let's Make a Memory ~ Leapin' Lizards!
I gathered up the boys' plastic lizards and set up three bowls on the table. The goal was to get those lizards to leap into the bowls.
Simon's victory pose can only mean one thing–all the lizards are in the bowls!
Let's Make a Memory ~ Ladybug Land
I purchased Ladybug Land for Simon. I knew he'd love it, and he really does. He spends time each day observing the little larvae. He can't wait to see the pupas!
Learning about the ladybug's life cycle with these little guys. I picked them up about five years ago at a convention. It's sweet to see Simon learning with the same things Elijah used.
