Letter 'C' and More

Our week started out with flooding - so our day Monday looked a lot like this:
But we were cozy in our house atop the hill - and school stayed in session for the duration of the week, sadly to some of our students.

C Week for Joseph!
Crab craft can be found here

C is for cottonPhotobucket
We also read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie - and Joseph completed a lapbook with much supervision.

This is a wheel attached by a brass fastener [you can purchase in the office supply dept. I got mine at Wal-Mart]. As the child spins the wheel he retells the story.
If you give a mouse a cookie,
he's going to want a glass of milk,
if he has a glass of milk,
he'll want to use a straw...

The child dictates here while the mother writes it down.

Feed the Mouse a Cookie... or 20!
I had Joseph leave the lower part of the mouse's face unglued, so as he feeds him cookies they slide under his nose...

I laminated my Joseph's cookies and made a pocket for them + the numbers
that go in the blank box which instructs the child how many cookies to give
the mousie. I had to include a flap of sorts, so that they wouldn't spill all over
everytime the lapbook was opened.

Match how many chips are in the cookie to the correct number.

Even though this is "C" week for us, there were many "M's" that were included in this
lapbook. So here are a few "M" activities and books...

Nursery Rhymes all having to do with mice...

And this, I just loved - very near and dear to my heart! My mom would always
recite this [and probably still does] when we saw the moon growing up.
So, I say this too to my own children!

The back cover. The End.

The lapbook instructions you can find here! (scroll down a tad)
Love this site for lapbooks!!!
Thanks to Kimberlee and her talented daughter Lydia, we're starting our

"A" is for Always Ask
You can go here for the printables which Kimberlee has so graciously shared!

Someone was bead sorting and populated Asia in the excitement!

This is for Kayla:
Look at this drawing which John Paul drew today. I love all
the detail - seen in the second photo.
I thought you'd love all the sketch work - I surely do :)

Fantastic post! Thanks so much for sharing your "C" week. We love "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie", so thank you also for giving that link to the lapbook site. I had not come across that site before, but have now put it in my homeschool favorites.

May God bless you.

I need to do a lot more with my little one. You shared a fantastic idea that I might just have to try out myself for the 4 year old.

Love all the sketches ...
