French Fries

Flap Jacks

Fraction Flowers
Penelope and I have been homeschooling  preschool since just after Labor Day. We just finished our week of "F". We began our week with a walk in the Forest. Penelope loves the Forest we went to because of the darling trio of horse Friends we pass on our way to the trail. Penelope brought them an apple and was so very happy to visit with them. Then we had a wonderful Forest walk while Baby slept peacefully in the baby carrier. Penelope found so many Fairy houses and also  bunch of Ferns.

For foods we made Falaffle, French Fries (baked, not fried), Flap jacks (three times), Frittata (the tofu kind), and an amazing Farfalle pumpkin, sage, sausage dish.

We made a beautiful rainbow Fish, a Fan, and Fraction Flowers. Penelope used her F stamps a lot this week. Both the letter F and Flower and Fawn stamps. She was also  was very much into her tracing workbook and sat down and did 15 pages at once one day and 12 pages another day. She did lots of cutting with scissors, as she always does, and even though they don't begin with F both girls were very into puzzles this week. They also spent a lot of time at the sand/water table and Pen colored a bunch of Fairy and Fish pictures.

Pen decorated our F table with Flowers, Foals, Feathers, and Fish. We read Ferdinand, Fairy books, books about Foals, Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, and so many more. We had ordered One Fish, Two Fish, and The Rainbow Fish, and The Foot Book from the library, but they didn't come in time for F week. We also did the hand rhymes I Have Ten Little Fingers, Five Fat Peas in a Pod, 1 2 3 4 5 Once I Caught a Fish Alive, and the song Five Green and Speckled Frogs.

I was so excited when Pen spent a long time writing and showed me her work and it was half of the alphabet and completely on her own she copied the word peace from the golden peace sign that hangs from up high in our living room. I'll keep that one forever. The first word my little Penelope wrote on her own was PEACE!

So we are done with F and onto G!
