After a couple weeks off from Letter of the Week, Arin was asking to do it again. Today, we read Rumble in the Jungle by Giles Andreae.
Ella is very much into stickers right now (you can see them all over her arm in this post!). The first activity the girls did was to place jungle animal stickers on the letter Jj. Arin had an upper case J, because she is the big sister and Ella got the lower case j, because she is the little sister.
In fact, they both liked it so well, that they ended up playing it together while I made lunch.
Arin had her first introduction to measuring by using a ruler. I bought a couple of the grow-an-animal toys (lion & zebra) from the Dollar Tree. Arin measured them today, before putting them in water. She wrote her findings down on a chart and she will measure them again tomorrow and then the next day to see how much they grown each day.
Finally, I cut greeting cards in pieces (an idea I got from Chasing Cheerios) to form puzzles. Ella's puzzle was a simple, four-piece puzzle, while Arin's was more difficult.
