Sam's salt dough map of Japan. After I took the picture he added on what oceans surrounded it.
For English Gabe worked on his letter book today. It was the letter N.
We all know how much Gabe loves monkey's. So it was no surprise when he was excited to have monkey math. This is a great game for younger kids learning to add. They get to self check themselves. If the monkey's arms are balanced they know that they are right.
For Life Skills today both of the boys had to feed the monkey. They love doing this. Gabe even adds in sound effects. I will not subject you to them. (he did have me make a video of it)
For our Arts and Crafts project to do today I had the boys make Japanese Worry Dolls. I found the idea for it in the family fun craft book but the do have it on their web site, here. These looked alot easier to make than they really were. I made mine (the middle one) the night before just to make sure that I could do it and help the boys if they needed it. Sam did complete his (the left one) all on his own and did a great job. I helped Gabe with his (the right one). Sam wants to make one for each country that we study now. He was so cute giggling about the costumes that he could make. My favorite worry doll that was made is shown below. I love this kid. He is so much fun.
