- Letter: y

I’ve included an “All About Me” printable booklet in the download. My daughter loved this…and I can’t wait to store it away and pull it out when she’s older. I love looking at pictures the girls have drawn of our family! You can also put together an “All About Me” photo book.
We also looked through some picture albums from when they were babies!
I know this is so weird! I asked the girls to make people out of playdough, and this is what they do every time (I think it’s because of our lesson on the Blind Man Sees). They want to add wiggly eyes to the playdough! Then, I asked them to make it stand up. They were starting to get frustrated, so…
I gave them some toothpicks! We talked about how the toothpicks were like bones in our bodies–keeping us upright. I also had them act out what it would be like if they didn’t have bones.
This was a silly little project…and it really needs a skull, but we just cut apart q-tips and made a skeleton. You could glue these down if you wanted to, but ours are in a plastic bag so they can be reused! It’s a great way to review various bones, too!
I gave each of the girls access to bowls of various fruits and veggies, and they made their own fruit faces.
This one even has a mustache! I love their creativity. Each one was unique!
We did a “scratchy back” letter review.
