S is for Snowman! It feels so good to be back in our homeschool routine and out of holiday season. Everyone is happier when there’s a schedule. And the kids missed school.
We started by tracing the Letter S. I told them to trace it 10 times. Then Timmy did a practice cutting page. After that I gave him pieces of a snowman to cut out and paste onto blue paper. For Grace I cut her pieces out for her.
I think it’s so cute that he wants to put his name on everything now. We took a little break to read a book, Corduroy. I loved that book as a kid. In first grade the teacher had us each take a teddy bear Corduroy home and write about what we did.
Then we watched Leap Frog Letter Factory. This movie really helps with letter recognition and sounds. And when they get to Letter L the kids get a lollipop.
We went outside and played some soccer and they had a picnic lunch with my not so perfect snowman sandwiches.

Tuesday we had snowmen pancakes. My food art is clearly lacking but these kids love it. Timmy says wow mom you are so sweet.
And now it’s turned into a fake snow ball fight. MESS.
Wednesdays is church playgroup. We made a birthday card for Father Ulto and a Thinking of of You card for Father Lopez. His sister went to Heaven on Christmas Eve.
We made snow today. Technically it’s a new week and we should be moving on to our next letter but it’s actually very cold today so we had to give it one more day.
We caught some love bugs and had a yummy lunch.
