Busy Work

We started learning about touch points today. I am a big fan of them...I still use them! :)
We learned them up to the number 5.
Then we worked on our number packets.

Then we played two games that we have played in the past. (I don't like making things and then only using them once.) The first one was a math mat. You roll the dice, and count the dots, then add that many cotton balls to your mat to make rain clouds.

The second one was a bean counting sheet that I made.
We did a little bit on Beginning Sounds. I'm sorry I don't have a link for this worksheet.
Then we worked on sounding out words.

Mixing Colors

Before we get to colors, we made these wind socks. They were very easy! Just print out any spring time color page, I chose flowers, and have your child color it. Then staple it into a tube shape, and staple on strands of crepe paper. Easy!
And now if it would stop snowing we could put them outside! :)

I found THIS worksheet for this activity.
They look bored! lol. But they were just listening to me tell them what we were going to do.
We mixed colors together to see what they turned into, and we used our fingers because we love to get messy. :)
I just did this as an after thought. The purple was SO dark, and they said it looked like brown. So I added some white to it to show them that is was indeed purple. Then that turned into a little lesson on what white does when it is mixed to a color. I showed them how every time I added more white it got lighter and lighter.

We also learned this song about the primary colors. It is a song in our church's children's songbook. I adapted it a little for this lesson.
