November School Highlights

Leaf Unit
Of course we had to start off by playing in the leaves!

I combined two different ideas here: 1st she made finger painted leaves. Then she put them together to make a leaf wreath.

She also labeled the parts of a leaf & did leaf rubbings  

Apple Unit
Apple taste test with a handwriting sheet to write her favorite one and the reason why.

Hand print Apple Tree in progress.

The Finished Piece!  
Since it was the week before Thanksgiving, we made it a "Thankful Tree". She wrote something that she's thankful for on each apple.  

My big girl is becoming such an artist!  
She drew this picture to illustrate the story, "A New House", in the book Grasshopper on the Road. 

She also labeled the parts of an apple & did apple printing

She ended the month with her Bible & Ballet Recital.

Where did those 6 months go???

I cannot believe that my baby is already 6 months old today!  Those months flew by!  Our little sweetie is such a delightful baby.  I have several pet names for him.  At any given moment, he's either my chubby bunny, snuggle bear, chunky monkey, or baby bear.  I'm not sure if he even knows that his name is CalebJ.  Anyway, my sweet baby boy is growing up so fast.

His Top 6 favorite things to do
1) push up on his hands
2) roll in both directions
3) giggle at his sisters
4) sit in his ExerSaucer  
5) smile & look for mama around the room
6) blow raspberries

May the Lord...

5)lift up his countenance upon you,
6)give you peace.
