Monkey is 4 years 4 months old
Monkey was really excited to get back into the school room this week. She also seemed to gravitate towards the craft works (which, I suppose most kids would! 😉 ). It does seem more difficult to get her to try any of the sensorial…she loves practical life, art, and writing, but really seems to avoid sensorial. I wonder if her history of sensory processing disorder plays a roll in that?
We did a lot with ladybugs and bees this week. Here is monkey using tempura paint to make ladybug rocks.
I found this counting exercise at kidssoup.com. On each page is a ladybug and a number, and I had Monkey draw the number of dots on the ladybug as the number represented. To help with self correction, I drew the correct number of dots below the ladybug.

Playing with wax sticks (we were learning about bees, and the two main products from bees--wax & honey. That morning, they had honey on their toast too! 😉 )
