About Me

I'm a mom, a teacher, a student, a wife, and a scout leader. I am actually an education major currently working on my practicum in a 2nd grade classroom. I also home school my two children. I'm also a cub scout leader, a girl scout leader, and at church I'm the children's music leader. ;) I tend to stay a little busy. My state requires homeschoolers to keep a portfolio. I am going to use this blog as my portfolio.

What am I?

Red - toddler

Day 1: This week we are doing different things for the kids. What I was doing before was too simple for Collin and too difficult for Ronni so I just quit doing that and now they're each doing separate things. Ronni still hasn't learned her colors. She doesn't have the desire to learn like Collin did. That's okay though -- she's more talented other ways, for example, she already knows how to cut well. It took Collin forever to get the hang of that (we're still working on that one). Anyways.... today we all had to wear something red. We ran through the house, searching for anything red and we went for a drive (it would have been a walk but it was a wet and rainy day) and looked for things that were red.

Day 3: (For some reason, it won't let me type under the pictures so pretend that's where this is;) Today, I put a red sticker on Ronni's finger and we walked around touching anything red. 
Afterwards we sang a song: I Love Red (sung to Farmer in the Dell) I love the color red/I love the color red/ red, red, my shoes are red/ I love the color red. 
You can name different things that are red for the third line. Have fun!

Day 2: Continuing our red theme we made a red collage today. I just used any craft supplies I could find that were red. Then I smeared glue all over a piece of paper and Ronni got busy. I kept asking her what color the different items were. She would reply "red". Hopefully, she's catching on. ;)

Thanks for the awesome ideas Linda! We are doing red next week, so I'm using these 3 ideas and trying to make up a few more. I think one of the days we might eat something red at every meal.
