The Letter L

The second week of school was focused on the letter 'L'.  The boys had a blast making lavender L's and lemonade. As usual, we started the week off with dot-a-dot pages on Monday. We continued reading lessons with Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy lessons, and working on writing with Handwriting Without Tears (affiliated links below) throughout the week. 

On Tuesday, we made Lavender 'L's. I had Josh pick up some real Lavender at one of our favorite stores, The Paris Market, and the next day we stuffed fabric 'L's with it.  This was great motor skills practice and the boys loved playing with and smelling the lavender. 

On Thursday, we made lemonade.  I did most of the prep work earlier in the day, but left something for each boy to do.  They each juiced a lemon half, measured and poured simple syrup, and helped count the cups of water. And of course, they LOVED drinking it.
