Ll is for Ladybugs and Leaves! We had a short school week because my brother and his family came for a visit, but we managed to squeeze in a few activities anyway. We started out with do-a-dot L's from Confessions of a Homeschooler and used L outlines to make leaf collages with our backyard leaf scavenger hunt findings. They loved talking about the little and large leaves and trying to get them to stick to the glue.We used the size sequencing ladybugs from Confessions of a Homeschooler too. We put them in size order and rainbow order, we matched our Melissa and Doug fish color puzzle to the ladybugs and they answered questions that I would ask them ('Which fish is the littlest?' 'Which fish is the largest?'). We finished out the week by making ladybug magnets with foam, glue and pipe cleaners too. They love anything that has to do with arts and crafts these days!
We're going to take a break from the alphabet next week to focus on Easter activities. Hard to believe we're almost halfway through the alphabet already! Click here to see what others did this week.
