Learning Along the Alphabet Path
~ Letter Formation ~
The girls made the letter S with Modeling Wax, HWT Wooden Pieces, and on paper.
~ Strawberry Fairy Coloring Pages ~
They also colored from the The Flower Fairies Alphabet Coloring Book while listening to A Flower Fairy Alphabet on CD.
~ Picture Book Science :: S is for Sea Shells and Sea Stars ~
We worked on some of the mini books included in a lap book on Sea Stars using from Homeschool Share.
~ Picture Study :: S is for Stars ~
While on the topic of Stars we also read The Sky Is Full of Stars.
~ S is for Saints ~
The girls colored St. Sharbel Coloring Pages from Catholic Artworks and completed some copywork, which I created at Writing Wizard using the quote from An Alphabet of Catholic Saints.
Our Homeschool Group's All Saints Fair fell at a perfect time, and we also celebrated the feasts of St. Patrick (with Saints, Shamrocks, and Six Smiling Sweeties!) and made Symbolic Shapes in honor of St. Joseph.
We also Spray painted a Shelf for our Saints!
My friend Marci knew I've been looking for something, and found this tray at Good Will for $4.00. The girls helped me spray paint it Gold and we hung it on our school room wall. I think it turned out cute!
Many, many, months later, I still have 4 saints to go... Getting close!
~ S is for States ~
The girls enjoyed staying up late one night to play States & Capitals Sequence.
~ S is for Sewing ~
The girls Stitched, Stuffed, and Served up some Super fun Felt Sweets!
~ S is for Sunflowers ~
I downloaded and printed The Story of the Sunflower Coloring Book for the girls to color while learning about sunflowers. We then decorated some Sunflower Cupcakes for Sunday.
~ S is for Strawberries ~
Strawberry-Coconut Tres Leches Trifle
I posted the recipe at Catholic Cuisine, for those of you that have requested it for Easter!
We are busy Spring Cleaning this week, and next week is Holy Week, so the girls won't be starting "T" Week until next month... That should give them plenty of time to finish the rest of their sewing!
