Preschool

I started "preschool" today. It only took about 20 minutes, but we are starting with the letter A and we will move our way through the alphabet. We will see how it goes. It gives me more one on one time with Sadie, so I am excited about it.

Today I taught her how to write the letter A and we practiced with paint. Then, I was planning on making apple prints by cutting an apple in half, dipping it in paint and putting it on paper. That didn't turn out too well, so I cut a stamp out of the apple and we printed the paint on a piece of fabric (since all I have is fabric paint ha ha). Sadie wanted a circle stamp so I carved a circle out of the apple. When it dried I sewed up the sides and let her help me stuff it with polyfil and now she has a fun little pillow that she made.

Now, I just need to come up with more ideas for the rest of the week for letter A. Any suggestions?


Making her apple prints.


We also made some ants on the paper at the bottom of this picture. Sadie is so afraid of bugs though, so we only ended up making 2.


I think her A's turned out really good!


So grown up!

In Kindergarten Scott's class cooked through the alphabet. Easy things - I made a list once. If I find it I'll share it with you. The only thing I can remember now is - tiny tacos. It was pretty fun for them. What you did looks really fun for Sadie.

The preschool I took Andrew to said the vowels are the most difficult to learn, she started with D, M,& S I think. I have a list if you want it. She did a lot with Nursery Rhymes. I have an excellent book on that if you want it & they had a color of the month...
