Our story this week (January 20-24) was The Tale of Benjamin Bunny. We loved the part of the story when the cat sat on top of the basket, trapping Benjamin Bunny and Peter Rabbit underneath. In whiskers and a little pink nose, Audrey pretended to be the cat. She drank milk out of a bowl. She even curled up like the cat when he was sleeping, in the shape of a C. Later we drew a picture of the sleeping cat in that C shape in our main lesson book and practiced a big C on the opposite page.
We use Handwriting Without Tears in addition to our Oak Meadow Kindergarten Curriculum. Each week we use the wooden pieces to "build" our letter. Then we practice that letter using "wet, dry, try". That is when I write the letter on the small chalkboard, Audrey gets it wet by following my letter with a small sponge, Audrey dries it by following where the letter was with a small dry cloth, and then Audrey tries her own letter by following where it was just wiped away.

Our story of loving and learning at home...
"Let them be little, 'cause their only that way for a while. Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day. Let them cry, let them giggle; let them sleep in the middle, oh, let them be little."
