..is next week!
I'm itching for Autumn and Winter and a slower cozy rhythm
Our theme for the week is going to be time. I've got some fun things up my sleeve including this to show Paige how the sun travels throughout the day into twighlight and night. Isn't it pretty?
We are also going to be making a Wheel of the Year to hang up on our art wall, which will feature the holidays, solstices and family birthdays and celebrations. Again I think this is a really beautiful and visual way to show the months of the year, and since Paige can't "read" yet she can use it as a visual guide. Pinterest has some beautifullllll examples of this project and one of my favorites can be seen here
We are also going to begin our daily journal which will have both writing prompts from momma, and whatever Paige feels like writing and illustrating. I loved journaling as a kid, and I think it's going to be a great little start to our mornings for Paige. Other "time" lessons are going to be days of the week, and learning to read a clock (not digital) Eeboo has a game I ordered called Telling Time we will use for that, and I have a few worksheets and activities for us to do. Paige knows all the numbers visually, so this should be just a simple review of what she already understands.
Wyatt is going to be doing puzzles, making homemade cloud dough, and doing color match ups.
And on the weekend we have a Fall festival in town to go to, and Sunday is Grandparents day so we will be making cards for al the Grandmas and G-pas and mailing them or in my Dad's case, delivering in person along with some wooden fish I got him.
And I sense some adventures during the week - playing with friends, lots of time outdoors and Paige's freeschool on Monday. When she gets home I'm going to give her the new materials we have, which include her journal, some colored pencils and a pencil sharpener, new beeswax crayons and the Montessori wooden letters I bought from Amazon.
In other news, this bad boy is on my shit list
He's in the annoying teething-teenager puppy stage and he can not be left alone. In the yard or house - he's tearing into everything he can get his paws on, and today it was a giant bag of soil I had on the deck. My fault for leaving it there? Yes, but man. This stage of puppyhood is similar to the terrible two's only Wyatt is slightly less destructive and not as...large. It's hard to forget my gentle, high fiving 90lb dog is only 8 months old and I need to be patient.
