Week In a Glance - M is 31 Months Old

It's been sort of a crazy week around here.  I've had so much going on that school was sort of put on the back burner.  We didn't get to many of the activities in our Preschool Pack, but that's ok.  Sometimes you just have to go with the flow!

Official School
All of the activities in this section have instructions and/or printables in earlier posts from this week.

Ghost Writing Practice from our Halloween Preschool Pack

Spider Grid Game from our Halloween Preschool Pack
 Halloween Sensory Tub 

Extra Learning
M played a lot with her puzzles this week and her brother joined in the fun!
 Nap schedules are still being figured out.  R gave up both his morning and his evening nap, so now he goes to bed much earlier for his afternoon nap.  Unfortunately M isn't sleepy when he is, so she goes down for her nap about an hour after him.  We've been using that time to do special things, like having picnics out on the front lawn.
 I pulled out the Halloween box to start decorating and found these erasers that I had bought a few weeks ago.  We decided to make little patterns out of them.

Teacher Lessons
I don't really have a lesson this week.  I do want to share something I found out though!  A friend of mine learned that by the end of Kindergarten in our local public school system, the children are expected to know the letters, their sounds, and how to count to 10.  By the END of Kindergarten!  Michaela is 2 1/2 and she is already there!  I just can't accept that in 3 1/2 years she will be in exactly the same place!  Sigh.  It looks like homeschooling might be in our future after all.

Since our activities are starting more and more to reflect a preschool level, we are now linking up to Preschool Corner as well as Tot School.  Visit their websites to find some more great learning activities!
