This is a tough letter to teach, because we don’t use it much in our everyday language. Cohen and I usually go through the house looking for things that start with the particular letter we are on that day, but Q was tough. Poor Cohen couldn’t come up with anything, and I found a quilt, that’s it.
So we learned about quilts!
Cohen and I have never really done a lacing craft, this one might be our first. I printed this cute quilt printable from Confessions of a Homeschooler and punched holes in it and put Cohen to work. He got frustrated a few times, but I think he liked it.
We put together small shape puzzles.
We decorated a crown for a queen or maybe a king. This was the week before Mardi Gras so we decided to decorate it with Mardi Gras colors. I let Cohen use his scissors to cut out the crown. Look closely and you can see it was done by a 3 year old, but he was so proud and he really did a great job!
Sorry for the fuzzy picture, it’s the only one I can find of the finished crown. Turned out pretty good.
This week, because Q is kind of an odd letter, we decided to catch up on our Fairy Tales. We read LOTS of fairy tales, so our Q book list is rather short.
