March 2014 Learning Highlights

Our learning this month included lots of fun! 
Here's a look at just some of the things we did...
Silas has been working on shapes and colors this month. 
We've actually been working on colors for several months and it isn't going so great.
I'm almost convinced that the boy is color blind, but we'll keep at it.
Seth spent part of the month learning about badgers.
We read every book that the library had about badgers. 
When asked what his favorite was, he picked Honey, Honey, Lion! by Jan Brett.
 We celebrated Dr. Seuss for several days.
We made Cat in the Hat hats, read lots of Dr. Seuss books, and watched The Lorax.
Our co-op group met and we had all kinds of fun searching for Dr. Seuss items...
making Lorax masks...
enjoying Oobleck, and several other fun things.
On March 14th we celebrated Pi Day!
To celebrate Spring we made rainbows.
made egg shell gardens, learned about the butterfly life cycle, 
and learned about the parts of a flower.
 One other highlight was the addition of a Beginning Sounds Memory Game. Seth is so good at Memory, so I wanted to add a bit of a challenge. I drew a picture on a blank index card and the beginning sound on another card. I did this for the entire alphabet, but we only play with half of the alphabet at a time. So every time he turns a picture card over he has to specifically think about a beginning sound. 
It's fun and educational!
For the month of April, we're looking forward to 
learning/celebrating Arbor Day, Earth Week, Farm Animals, and BEES!
