From the Valentine wrap up files: The Emperor has Love on his back.
Choclo firmly believes that all 2 dozen heart balloons are his exclusive property. No one may take away any balloon for any reason (this might work if he were an only child, I suppose...).
What does he want to do with all those balloons? Tie them to individual toys laid carefully all over the living room.
Ha! I bet you thought it was my regular messy living room, didn't you?
We are sadly realizing that after 10 1/2 days, the Emperor probably will actually have to go to school tomorrow. Sniff!
I've been trying to get all that planning done that I was sure I'd have time for!
I did make the Walking With Jesus poster.
I made up some Mardi Gras packets, but I'll explain that in another post.
I hand made some letter and number "fade out" pages. These came from a great book which I loaned out several years ago. I don't think it's coming back, and, of course, I have no idea who has it! It has amazing stuff in it, and I highly recommend it. I may just break down and buy it again, but I need these pages now.
Anyway, I just made a big table in Word, printed it out and hand drew the letters. The first row (5 boxes) is an outline of the letters to color in. The second row is an outline to trace inside. The third is a regular letter to trace. The fourth is a dashed line of the letter. The fifth are widely spaced dots, and the sixth just has a dot for where to start. All the rows also have arrows showing the letter formation. My hand is pretty tired, but I made it through the alphabet and numbers and then made tons of photocopies so I don't need to go through this again!
I did some other planning, but didn't get to the home school filing. And I, yet again, completely avoided cleaning the basement. Maybe next weekend...
