Hickory, Dickory, Dock!

Sorry!  We had every intention of posting yesterday, but it never happened!  Here is what we've been working on (It looks like we'll be doing a make-up day over the weekend!):

Recreating the 'Three Blind Mice' nursery rhyme with stickers ...
 Showing off her 3D mouse ...
 Completing a dot-to-dot of a hunk of swiss cheese ...
 Here are the instructions out of our activity book for how to make a finger puppet mouse.  (Sorry the picture is not more clear.  If you click on the photo, you can see it larger.)
 The materials for our finger mouse (we wanted ours to be gray with a brown tail) ...
 Giving him a nose ...
 All done and ready to climb the clock!  :)
Making patterns and sequences using beads and string ...

Today, we:
Writing:
1. Letter practice: We practiced writing big letter 'K' and little letter 'k' in our Alphabet and Counting workbook, page 27.  We also read the 'K' tongue twister so she could hear the 'K' sound.
2. We practiced writing numbers '0' and '1' in her I Can Learn With Pooh: Numbers and Counting workbook, pages 3-4.
Nursery Rhymes:
1. We read Mother Goose's 'Three Blind Mice' in our Mother Goose book (page 120), our A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes edited by Michael Foss (page 73), and our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, so she could see all the different illustrations for each.
2. We completed the 'Follow the Footprints' activity in our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, which required her to follow each mouse's trail of footprints to his hole.
3. We read Mother Goose's 'Hickory, Dickory, Dock!' in our Mother Goose book (page 87), our A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes edited by Michael Foss (page 25), and our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, so she could see all the different illustrations for each.
4. We read The Completed Hickory Dickory Dock by Jim Aylesworth.
5. We made the 3D mouse out of our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book.
6. We played with the mice, cheese, and clock stickers from our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book (center fold), and recreated the rhyme on paper.
7. We completed the 'What Time is It?' activity in our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, which required her to pick the two clocks in the group that show the same time.
8. We completed the 'Count How Many' and the 'How Many?' activities in our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, which required her to count the number of mice she saw hiding in a room, and match the number of mice to the correct number on each hunk of cheese, respectively.
9. We completed the 'Dot-to-Dot' activities in our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, which formed the pictures of a grandfather clock and a hunk of swiss cheese.
10. We made the 'Finger Mouse' as seen in our Giant Nursery Rhyme Sticker Activity book, using construction paper, a hole punch, and yarn for a tail.
Mother's Day:
1. We read A Chair for My Mother by Vera B. Williams.
2. We read Just Shopping With Mom by Mercer Mayer.
3. We read the story, 'The Mommy Elves,' as seen in our Ladybug magazine, May/June 2011, pages 24-30.
4. We read the 'Molly and Emmett' comic strip in our Ladybug magazine, May/June 2011, back cover, about Molly making cookies for her mother.
5. We mailed Grandma's Mother's Day cards.
Series and Patterns:
1. We completed the pattern worksheet in our Care Bears: Thinking Skills Workbook, page 14.
2. We completed the 'Sock Drawer' worksheet in our Getting Your Preschooler Ready for Math workbook, page 77, that required her to count the objects of each pattern given.
3. We took beads and string and made sequences and patterns with them.

Come see us again tomorrow when we cover 'Baa, Baa, Black Sheep' and 'Hey, Diddle, Diddle!'
