#### Just wanted to share some fun apple trays that we are working on this week (and some last week too). This print-out is more for Silas. I got the apple from 1+1+1=1. The alphabet beads I bought online from S&S Worldwide for something like \$10 for a HUGE bag. The rest of these print-outs are from 2 Teaching Mommies and Confessions of a Homeschooler. Roll and cover game for Asa. He is really enjoying this one! Sorting apple colors for Silas. I noticed that he was having problems determining red from green in this activity....really hoping the color blind trait is not passed down to him. :/ Silas LOVES these little Fit-a-Shape puzzles. Stuck with the apple colors theme. Same problems with red and green for this activity too. Fun apple seed counting activity for Asa. Instead of using the paper seeds that they provided us with in the print-out we are using black beans. This activity is supposed to be used for pre-writing skills, but I like to use it for cutting practice. File folder game for both Asa and Silas. If you think you've seen this before you're right. It was in one of my earliest blog entries. :) All o f that hard work is paying off and getting reused. Same for this one. Annabelle used this last year. I made a Big, Medium, Little apple sort. Number puzzles for Asa. I actually printed out the 11-20 one for Annabelle since we're working hard on her number recognition for those numbers. Upper case, lower case letter matching. That's it for now! Check back in at the end of the week to see them in action. Happy blogging! jess_hak Linking up to 1+1+1=1 and One Hook Wonder and Pinterest Tuesday

Love this apple tree math game

#### Here we go! Thursday, September 1st was our official first day.  NO TEARS!  That is always a good sign.  The day went extremely well.  We were happy and just played most of the day.  I pulled out some of my special music and we danced and sang for about thirty minutes.  Our circle time was just talking and sharing.  Everyone loved my microphone  and couldn't wait for their turn.  The day went by fairly quickly and before we knew it, it was time to leave. Here are some of the new ideas that I am trying for this year.  I hope you like them.  The first came about after a trip to my local Dollar Store. The object of this game is simple.  More the little pom-poms from one bowl to the other BUT you can't use your hands!  HUH??? You have to use the tongs!   We love it! Next is a fun math game.  I have a huge box of bottle tops and I knew they would come in handy. I found this template on line and new it would be perfect for all those wonderfully colored bottle caps!  So far - we love it! Since we are studying the letter "A", I wanted to incorporate our letter of the week while practicing our math skills.  I really like this We match the number of apples with the number on the tree trunk!   Simple FUN! Okay, now let's talk about our first week!  With day one being such a huge success I decided that we should go ahead and start slowly working on our curriculum.  We started Friday with a great project!  We talked about the color red, and the letter "A".  Everyone took turns gluing red items to a giant red apple.  Simple, easy, a great confidence building and very fun! We headed to the kitchen for our special Friday Fun snacks and science experiments.  This week we made our world famous "Friendship Pudding".  Here is my recipe if you would like to make it.  One package of good 'ole Jello Instant Pudding, milk and a coffee can.  We pour the pudding mix into the coffee can, add the milk and SHAKE!  Everyone takes a turn shaking the pudding.  Each time we pass the can to a different person we shout out their name!  It is a great, fun way to learn every one's names.  Plus the pudding is really yummy!  While my buddy, Mrs. Christi, was dishing out the pudding, I showed our class a very simple science experiment.  We mix oil and colored water together.  OR DID WE?  Well, we tried, and tried, and tried.  But the two would not mix together.  FUN?  You bet!  Next we added an Alka-Seltzer tablet to the mixture - instant lava lamp!  NOW THAT WAS FUN!  I loved hearing everyone screaming when they got into their cars later that day, "oil and water don't like each other!".  Mission accomplished!﻿ I at the lake now for Labor Day but I cannot wait until Tuesday!
