I'm enjoying Kindergarten with my girl, I just wish I had more time to dedicate to it.  Here's a look at what we have been enjoying.

Even though her cutting skills have progressed beyond simple snipping, Kensley always loves this activity.

Working with our homemade Montessori Teen Boards and our version of  Montessori Golden Bead Materials to learn numbers 11-19

Melissa and Doug Spelling Boards.

A living & non-living sort from a Take is to Your Seat Science book.

Water color resist painting.

Working on prewriting skills by coloring and drawing lines.

Tracing window clings to work on pencil control.

Tracing Letters

Puzzle Art.  The first time Kensley tried this activity she got tired and wanted to stop but with encouragement she continued and then couldn't stop.

Working on table setting skills with a matching mat.

More prewriting and pencil control practice using this fun stencil.  The stencil is part of a book called Shape Builders.  The book comes with a stencil and patterns for making bugs, houses, ect.  This has been a favorite of all the children.

Ya know potato stamping, well we did fruit and veggie stamping after reading the book From Tops to Bottoms.  It was a fun and creative extension to painting.
