We continued playing/learning about outer space this week. We took a few trips.
To the moon.
And mars (which he said looks remarkably like Moab).
He and Daddy sorted space flashcards cards into "in the solar system" and "outside the solar system" piles (plus an extra for astronauts and machines).
We also downloaded a couple of fun iphone apps about space. I'm hoping to get a new batch of books on the space theme at the library this weekend. To see our first post about our outer space studies, click here.
We went to the grocery store this week and left with three board games. How did that happen?! He really wanted to buy "Sorry" (I think he was just amused by the name). Then I saw Cat In The Hat I Can Do That, a Dr. Seuss based game that another mom recently recommended to me. It allows for all sorts of silly, somewhat physical play (like walking backwards around a "trick-a-ma-stick" with a toy boat on your head), and I knew he would just love it (he does). Lastly, I saw How Tall Am I on sale for $5. I had bought this game for my nephew a year or two ago, so I recognized it right away, and it fit with one of my ideas for the year - to work on measurement stuff here and there. We have had fun with all three games this week, although we only tried Sorry once, and it was too long for him. I'll have to shorten it and just use one or two pieces for now.
And we spent a ridiculous amount of time on the computer playing games - the Bibliophile in a comfy chair with the laptop while I wear "Baby Girl" (this is what he insists I should call her) in an ergo carrier, bounce on my exercise ball next to him, assist with his games, and occasionally try to shove food in his mouth.
I am linking this post up with Weekly Wrap-Up, Preschool Corner, Science Sunday, and Tot School.
Comment! What have you been up to this week?
