Fillin' their little brains...

School has continued on even with the addition of a newborn.  We started back sooner than I thought we would.  Seems like learning is more an ingrained part of our days than I knew.  Here are some of the things we've been doing the past 3 weeks:

Dale has been memorizing the Beatitudes:

Alan did activities with the letter W:

Dale completed a mini-lapbook on Canada, in preparation for the Winter Olympics.

Alan read The Mitten (over and over and over again) and made his own giant mitten and story animals from Jan Brett's site.

Dale did experiments with a mirror.

Alan played his new mitten shape match game from Mimi.

Dale practiced his addition facts both orally and with math games from FunBrain.  Math baseball and Math-car are his favorites.

Alan made a fishbowl counting page to practice counting 1-5.  (I'd link to it, but I don't think I can ever find it again!)  

Dale was introduced to the concept of 'carrying'.  

Alan practiced cutting shapes with scissors.

Dale read more books than I can count.

Alan kept his nose in a book a good bit, too.  But he takes breaks to smile for the camera.  ;)

Dale and I played Scrabble for spelling practice.

Alan put together quite a few jigsaw puzzles.

We are in the middle of reading Beethoven's biography.

And we all spent time together cooking, cleaning, and taking care of Tyler.

Whew!  It's a good thing all this learning is so much fun! ;)
