This week we continue with Itty-Bitty Bookworm Curriculum (Bo Year 1) and ushered in the Holiday's with The Gingerbread Man.
I can't tell you what fun we had with this! This has been my favorite week so far! I am totally loving how each week and all the activities included are fresh and new. The activities are endless and well rounded!
Our favorite activitiy this week was making The 5 Senses Gingerbread Man book!!!!! SO AWESOME!
Each day he worked on a different sense and each page had a different approach to decorating the page.
We love it so much that we made several others but instead of as a book we represented the 5 senses on a single sheet to give as a gift for the grandparents.We also enjoyed some music time with our instruments and songs provided by Itty-Bitty Bookworm and a few more. Zorro is really getting into instruments and a few times he asked me to sing and play the instruments while he danced! That's HUGE! In fact I have a blog post from exactly 1 year ago to prove it!

We did a lot of play-doh gingerbread man making.
Practiced cutting. He LOVES cutting but is not good at it. Just too impatient to follow the lines. He doesn't get that from me...Ahem.
I made him a gingerbread man sandwich for lunch and he loved it.
We made gingerbread cupcakes from a mix at Trader Joes and will make gingerbread cookies also from that mix later in the month.
We practiced counting a lot! He can count but still doesn't understand the representation of it and has trouble identifying the numbers. I really can't figure out how to get past that right now. Any ideas?
And SOOOOOOO much more...
