Winter Unit fun!

So we did the winter unit this past week over Christmas break.  It was alot of fun.  We made sure to include time with some of our boxes (sensory box, lacing cards, board games) and we spent some time in our reading corner.  Above you'll see Sassy taking full advantage of reading time! 

We got most of our material from  the Winter fun pack from the 1+1+1=1 site.  I think this has to be my number one most favorite home school blog of all time!!  We used the RRS (Raising Rock Stars) format and started our day with a winter bible memory verse.  We made our prayer requests and then read from our toddler bible.  The kids had a blast with all the new crafts we did!  We used bingo daubers to color in a snowman from the DTLK website (another favorite websites for materials)  winter dauber art and we also made snowflakes with little pieces of colored construction paper that the kids cut up.  I cut them into strips and they cut little pieces off with their safety scissors.  We loved this project. (Snowflake scissor skills ) The only thing I would have done differently was I would have traced the snowflake outline on the back of the paper before the kids began to glue on their paper.  This would have made it MUCH easier to cut out once their snowflakes dried.  Otherwise we had a lot of fun!
   We also got to take advantage of the 50 degree weather we had on the weekend and went sledding at nana and papas house!  Here's Peanut ready to go!!!  This week we look forward to starting to integrate a nice mix of tot school and RRS into our crazy therapy schedule.  Wish us luck!!
