Hey, Diddle, Diddle!

So sorry we haven't been as reliable lately.  Al and I hired a real estate agent to sell our house this past week, and we have had lots of homework (can't think of a more appropriate word) to do, which has completely stressed me out.  Nevertheless, we are working again and hoping to share more ideas through the summer months fast approaching.  The photos in this post are from yesterday (after a visit to the Columbus Museum for Toddler Time with our buddy, Leah) and today.

Sitting at a desk in the old schoolroom at the Columbus Museum, Maggie did not want her picture taken!

 Playing in the chalk room with our buddy, Leah ...
 Recreating the 'Baa, Baa, Black Sheep' nursery rhyme on paper with stickers ...
 She loved the stand-up 'Hey, Diddle, Diddle' scene we made.
 The materials for our 'Hey, Diddle, Diddle' mobile.  You can find the templates for the characters at http://www.dltk-teach.com/rhymes/heydiddle/mobile.htm.
 Maggie wanted to cover her tube with black paper decorated with star stickers like the night sky.
 Gluing her characters together ...
 Ta-da!
 Our 'Hey, Diddle, Diddle' mobile is complete and ready for hanging!

Today, we:
Writing:
1. Letter Practice:  We practiced writing big letter 'L' and little letter 'l' in our Alphabet and Counting workbook, page 29.  We also read the 'L' tongue twister so she could hear the 'L' sound.
2. We practiced writing number '2' in her I Can Learn With Pooh: Numbers and Counting workbook, page 5.
Nursery Rhymes:
1. We read Mother Goose's 'Baa, Baa, Black Sheep' in our Mother Goose book (page 43), our A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes edited by Michael Foss (page 26), and our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book (page 4), so she could see all the different illustrations for each.
2. We completed the numerical 'Dot-to-Dot' in our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, page 8, that helped her complete a picture of a sheep.
3. We completed the 'One for My Master' activity in our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, which required her to find the trail of wool that leads the black sheep back to its master.
4. We played with the 'Baa, Baa, Black Sheep' stickers out of our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, so she could recreate the rhyme on paper.
5. We made the 3D black sheep as seen in our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book.
6. We read Mother Goose's 'Hey, Diddle, Diddle' in our Mother Goose book (page 23), our A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes edited by Michael Foss (page 67), and our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, so she can see all the different illustrations for each.
7. We played with the 'Hey, Diddle, Diddle' stickers out of our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, so she could recreate the rhyme on paper.
8. We completed the 'Count How Many' activity in our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, which required her to count the different colored stars in the scene with the cow jumping over the moon.
9. We completed the 'Spot the Difference' activity in our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, which required her to spot the differences in two pictures of the cat and the fiddle.
10. We made the 3D cow jumping over the moon as seen in our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book.
11. We made the 'Hey, Diddle, Diddle' mobile as seen at http://www.dltk-teach.com/rhymes/heydiddle/mobile.htm.
Series and Patterns:
1. We completed the 'Row of Colors' worksheet in our Getting Your Preschooler Ready for Math workbook, page 73, that required her to finish the color patterns in a sequence of shapes.
