There are different versions of The Little Red Hen. The version I picked was the one about making bread. We made bread before we made the pizzas but I do not have a picture of the bread making.
We made Mini Muffin Pizzas for lunch. They were a hit, which is very difficult in my house. The recipe came from Familygo.com. Instead of making the pizza sauce recipe I just used Delallo Pizza sauce, it was very good.



Yumm!
Geography- Daddy is very good at Geography so I let him show Caden a few things on the map.
  • What state and country we live in.
  • North, South, East, and West.
  • Were Santa lives and the penguins (so north and south pole).
  • The equator.
  • Then Caden colored the United States of America map. Daddy told him what each state was while he colored it. I am not sure Caden understood any of what Daddy taught him but they seemed to have a good time. Caden answered his questions too, which made Daddy very happy!!!
  • Oh, Caden did not write his name. Daddy wrote it then Caden traced it.

                                                                                                              Math- 
We have been playing with a Rhyming puzzle this week.  He has not got the hang of rhyming yet but he defiantly knows how to put a puzzle together.  He tries to spell the word out on the puzzle cards by sliding his finger across the word...too cute!









I made these up for Caden. In our Raising Rock Stars Lesson we are talking about Jesus Death on the Cross (I will post on Tues.) So I decided to spell out Jesus and have him match the letters.

I made another one with the word green since he enjoyed it so much.  I wrote the word Jesus on the Jesus picture so I do not have that printable but made a printable for green. 

Science- We talked about magnets. I have these little circle magnets that we went around the house with to see what they stuck to.



Math- Sorting worms.  I got the worm lures from Walmart for $5 (4 different colors and about 10-15 worms in each color).



Math- This week we have been talking about Diamonds so I used some kite printables from 1+1+1.  Caden cut them out by himself and matched the correct colored word with the correct colored triangle.


More kites...Caden put them in order from largest to smallest.  Then he matched kites.
My husband's work was getting rid of their dry erase boards at so snagged one.  I can't believe it...it fit perfect in the school room (I will be posting more of our school room transformation soon).  The kids have had so much writing on it.  So this morning I decided to play a guessing game with Caden.  I drew a picture and he had to guess what I drew.  Then I wrote the word and he traced it, and then got to erase it after he was done.  He was so proud of himself...and look how focused he is writing!lol

We also read another version of The Little Red Hen.   This version talked about making a cake.  So we made cupcakes.  I do not have a picture.  I also do not have a picture of the kids at the zoo yesterday.  We got to pet a hen.  Perfect timing since we were reading about one!!!
