Preschool CornerGuess what? I never did get around to sharing pictures from what our children have termed the ‘best week ever’ of school. A.k.a. – they had free reign over the arts and crafts on our shelves and managed to overrun and destroy create some amazing Thanksgiving-related masterpieces. It was a short-lived reign though, but one that resulted in turkey this and turkey that.

Pilgrim hat

Kaleb and Laurianna made Pilgrim hats together – can you guess who did the coloring?

Thanksgiving School Fun-9532 Thanksgiving School Fun-9536

We made turkey placemats…or something fairly resembling one.

Drew pictures of turkeys {and a little someone obviously had the help of a sibling on this one}.

Larsen Toy Lab-9575

Spent some time playing with some GREAT new wooden blocks from Larsen Toy Lab. The block set has a go-along book that you read and then try to recreate some of the things in the illustrations using the blocks in the kits as well as your creativity. Stay tuned – I’ll be sharing more about these next week with you all!

Whipped Cream Medicine Help

Although whipped cream doesn’t seem school-related, it has played a part in Kaleb feeling better since he had a nice squirt of it to follow up his antibiotics this week {we ran out of his grape juice}. He was rather happy to use this substitute and is doing AMAZINGLY better {as in jumping up and down constantly and will.not.sit.still}.

Thanksgiving and Kaleb's Birthday-9566

And the big fun this week was a 6th birthday celebration, apple pie and all in lieu of birthday cake.

That is the quick sum-up of our week, minus all of the math, reading, and language that we worked on as well – but wasn’t as fun to take pictures of. We’re talking about nouns, reading the sounds ‘x’ and ‘qu’ and having fun with patterns and addition and subtraction.

What was your week like?
