Confession: I have not been very super at photo documenting our days.
The memory card insert thing on my computer quit working. (Boo!)
If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know.
I'll even give you a high five!
I'm usually semi good at figuring these things out,
but haven't had any luck with this.
Anyway, since the memory card insert thing is no longer working,
I have to use a USB cord.
I really miss my memory card insert thing.
Things were so much quicker and easier when it was working. Sniff.
We took a field trip the the local post office.
It was a "behind the scenes" field trip and it was SUPER awesome.
Er, let me correct that-
it was suuuuuuuuuuuuuper awesome!
If you know anything about our house, we love our mail!
For Veteran's Day, The Fantastic Okapi wrote this note to a veteran.
We finished our chapter book on Squanto and watched this dvd to celebrate.
The Fantastic Okapi has been a reading whiz lately.
Our current read aloud is The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary.
The Fantastic Okapi is reading Small Pig by Arnold Lobel.
Mr. Lobel is one of m favorite authors.
We read his book Owl at Home earlier this year.
The Green Owl's been busy writing me lots of little love notes.
He's also been enjoying lots of play dough time.
We tried making our own play dough but it turned out very sticky.
I kept adding additional flour and salt, but it was still a sticky mess.
I've had success making it in the past, but not this time!
So, thanks to "Playdoh" for making awesome playdough.
We've had some fun using a bunch of free Thanksgiving worksheets
from the "Teachers Pay Teachers" website.
Aren't we all cute? Heh.
We almost always do school in our pajamas.
This was a fun math activity.
We're learning how to do addition/subtraction with double digits.
I placed a certain # of Lego guys in each cup.
The Fantastic Okapi picked a cup and counted the Lego guys inside.
Then he had to do some math to figure out how many were in the other cup.
It was fun.
Here is the coordinating worksheet that I made.
Excuse the dog hair. White dogs shed. A lot!
We made some fun art, too!
This was a "follow the directions" task.
I drew something on a white board and asked them to copy it, step by step.
After we finished, I traced their drawings with permanent marker.
After that, they were free to color 'em up with oil pastels and watercolors.
I think they're really cute.
We also made postcards to send to our Chemo Angels.
Last week, the boys received SUPER cute letters
from their penpals in Missouri.
Photos coming with my next blog post,
so please stay tuned!
Wishing everyone a very happy Thanksgiving.
What are you feeling thankful for?
