Today, our cat got a haircut. It worked out perfectly that we were talking about Cc is for Cat, because the boys got to see a cat at PetSmart. Coincidentally, the cat they saw was named Checkers. So we were able to talk about another sound that the Letter Cc can make. Checkers was only about 4-5 months old, so he was quite a bit smaller than our cat, Tigris. After we got Tigris home, Evan kept saying, "We have a little cat, like Checkers. She is so soft. She looks pretty!" She really does look little with her hair all shaved off. And she is super soft! Evan wouldn't stop touching her.

We also started our next B4FIAR book today. To complement our study of the Letter Cc, we are reading "The Carrot Seed" by Ruth Krauss. I didn't know how Evan would do with this book since it is so much different than the others we have read so far. But he really seemed to enjoy its simplicity and 2-D, orange and brown, cartoon like illustrations. We read it a couple of times and then did a couple activities from "The Carrot Seed" Lapbook. One of the activities we did was on size classification (small, medium, and large). I would ask him which carrot was the largest/smallest/etc. and he would pick it out. We then glued them into the trifold booklet to put in his lapbook.

|Whoa, Evan. That's enough!|
|He wanted to use all the colors at the same time, and thought it was hilarious!|
