Long Dog/Short Dog

Today was again busy, but we had some catching up to do, so after lunch, we got right to it.  We continued our study of the letter 'P,' as well as Opposites (today we covered Short/Tall and Short/Long) and Numbers, and also started some reading on Valentine's Day.  Here are some photos:

The 'P' words Maggie wanted to spell on the fridge ...
 When I asked her to color the 'P's for her letter page, she traced them first and announced, 'I can write my 'P's!'  :)
 Her 'P' letter page ...
 Doing worksheets on Short/Tall ...
 Making our paper dachshund to illustrate Long/Short ...
 Putting the straw through the holes of our accordion dachshund ...
 We can make him long or short!
 Same/Different worksheets ...
 And a Sesame Street numbers worksheet with reusable stickers ...
 This was a neat worksheet.  She had to count the objects in the stickers, then place the stickers in the boxes with the corresponding number. 
 Counting objects, then circling the correct number for the same ...
Today, we:
Letter 'P':
1. We found the 'P's in our letter magnets and spelled out words that start with 'P.'

Winter/Snow:
1. We read A Perfect Day for It by Jan Fearnley.

Opposites (Short/Tall, Short/Long):
1. We played with our opposites puzzle cards again.
2. We completed two Short/Tall and Short/Long worksheets.
3. We made an opposites craft to help us better understand the concept of Long/Short using a paper dachshund with an accordion middle so that when stretched, he would be long, and when squashed, he would be short.
4. We completed four Same/Different worksheets that required her to identify the objects in each group that are same/different (review work).
Numbers:
1. We watched the Sesame Street: Count it Higher DVD that we borrowed from Netflix.
2. We completed a 'Number Crunching' Sesame Street counting worksheet with reusable stickers.
3. We completed two Winnie-the-Pooh's 'Counting from 1 to 10' worksheets with reusable stickers.
4. We completed the 'Fruit Count' worksheet in our Getting Your Preschooler Ready for Math workbook, page 15.
