Last week part of our phonics focus was the letter 's' saying the /z/ sound, like in the word 'laser' or in plural words. In a very tenuous connection we made this cute little thumbprint art work with five bees (see, it fits!) and a hive.
We glued our current favourite finger play in the corner:
Here is the beehive, where are the bees?
Hiding away where nobody sees.
Watch them come creeping out of the hive,
One, two, three, four, five!
I drew the hive and copied it on to yellow paper for the kidlets to cut out, and they used their thumbs to print the bee bodies with paint. When the paint was dry we added eyes, stripes and wings with black and blue markers.
One of the absolute favourites last week was 'Fox in the Hen House'. :)
I have the world's cutest nephew and recently he's been brushing up on his soccer skills!
He had a tough game with my brother and Chris over the weekend. :)
If you're in Australia you might happen to love watching 'The Block' just as much as I do. During one of the shows Chris and I tweeted a comment, and it made it onto the live show!
That's our tweet on the screen, even though you can't read anything it says. (You'll just have to trust me!)
The way that this year is flying past it will soon be Christmas time! Which is just fine by me - it is, after all, the most wonderful time of the year. :) I'm seriously considering making these TMNT baubles for my tree. How cute are they?
Thanks for stopping by, even though I was so slow off the mark with my Friday Five this week. Make sure to visit the linky and read what everyone else has been up to!
