|Cc is for Costume - Bob the Builder|
We finished learning about the Letter Cc today. Evan has got it down. He is really good at writing the Letter Cc too.

One of the games in Evan's Cc Lapbook is 'Counting C's'. We hadn't played this game for awhile so we got it out and he matched up all the pictures (crocodile, cats, cows, camels, and cobras) and then practiced counting them. Then he matched up number cards with the appropriate pictures.
The last B4FIAR book that we read was "The Carrot Seed" by Ruth Krauss. We had planted a carrot and have been watching it grow this whole time. Just in the last week, it has really taken off. Evan looks at it no less than 10 times a day. He gets so excited to see it and is always saying, "My carrot is huge!" We normally keep it in the kitchen, but I let him bring it in the schoolroom today while we read the story. Tigris was pretty interested in it too. I think she just wanted to eat it!

I had several worksheets left over that I had not spread out like I should have, so we had to do some catching up today. We will be moving on to the Letter Dd and the Number 3 soon, so I wanted to get these done before we can move on. At least Evan loves to do worksheets so he was pretty excited to do several in a row!
After the worksheets, we did some more counting. This time we used Evan's money. He keeps all his money in a tiger bank so he went and got it and dumped it all out. He lined up his pennies from 1 to 10. Then he put each line of pennies in the appropriate counting stacker cup. Once he filled up all his cups, he wanted to dump them all into the biggest one. Then we built towers with the cups. This of course turned into demolition time as he made the "walls come tumbling down." He thought this was great fun and built the tower and knocked it over again and again!
