Emery is all into animals at the moment so we are going to do an ABC unit study on Animals. Each week she chooses a different animal that corresponds with the next letter of the Alphabet. We started with Alligator. She can tell you what they eat, where they live, the difference between a Crocodile and Alligator, and everything else! She also made a clothespin Alligator. We visited the Alligators the week before at the Greensboro Science Center so we didn't go back this week. We read the Alligators and Crocodile section of our Encyclopedia of Animals and Crocodaddy by Kim Norman.

Who Doesnt Love to cuddle with their children and hold them and confort them? I know that baby carriers are my favorite way to get this type of time in. The Modest mommy is giving away a free Baby Sling to someone special! all you have to do is comment and you could have a chance to win! The type of Carrier is a Wrap type but much easier than your one piece Wrap. It is Two fabric rings hooked together. I personally have owned a Baby Ktan and this is a lot like that! I loved my Baby Ktan! http://www.mybabynest.com/ is the type of carriers. http://www.themodestmomblog.com/ is where you can get your free Wrap!

Phonics has started in our house! We no longer use the Little hands to heaven Curriculum. We made it about halfway through but it was way too easy for Emery. She is now on a kindergarten level. We are reviewing Curriculum for the time being, but decided to go our own approach for Phonics. We started with the LEapfrog Letter Factory DVD and then finished it up with Words factory by Leapfrog and Meat the Sight Words by Preschool Prep Company. We also use Preschool Prep Flashcards. I will also start using Learn to read in 100 easy Lessons. As we move along I will update followers on how it is going.
