Preschool-TOT-school Feb. 26- March 17

The last several week have been a bit of a blur. I worked so hard getting things ready before my arm surgery and then I had my surgery and I have been somewhat out of commission since. Hopefully this will be my last surgery and I will regain some rotation in my wrist. We have managed to fit in some school activities,Celebrate Dr. Seuss, my dad's 80th birthday and a little Leprechaun fun.


We talked about the old saying March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. C. really understood what this means. We have been graphing our lion and lamb days and so far this March has come in like a lamb--let's just hope it goes out like a lamb too. We made this cute dandy"lions".

Dr. Seuss

We celebrate Dr. Suess day with Read Across America on March 2nd. We read a ton of Dr. Seuss books that week and did ssveral activities to go along with some of the books.
We sorted and graphed gold fish after reading One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.
We did another graphing activity after reading Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? We rolled the dice and read the sound and then matched it to the picture on the graph. The boys loved this activity and C really got into reading the words. We got this activity from 2 teaching mommies. Get it here. We also measure things with our feet after reading The Foot Book and of course we ate green eggs and ham.

Marbel Painting Shamrocks

Lucky the Leprechaun

Lucky the Leprechaun visited us but the first time he came we were still in bed. He left us a note on tthe chalk board and some shamrock tattoos and a shamrock necklace on the table. Then while we were at school he came back and we missed him again. This time he left us some lilli-pop cookies, and a lprerechaun and bendable shamrock men. He left us a note saying he had to go home but maybe we would see him next year. The boys had a blast with this. Charlie went into preschool telling everyone about Lucky.

Happy Birthday Papaw!!
We also celebrated my dad's (AKA Papaw) 80th birthday. He has a St. Patty's birthday so we surprised him the Saturday before with a party. I think he had a lot of fun. Happy Birthday Papaw!!

Next week is our BIIG birthday week!! Both boys will have Birthdays by the 28th so we have a family party planned on the 27th and two individual parties planned this week to. I will post pictures after all of the festivities are over!!
