Pink Ending Sound Cards
We've used these before, but I've never required the kiddos to actually write in the letters. I think they're finally ready! We'll see!

Living vs. Nonliving in Nature
I find it so comical that any time I have taste testing on our shelves, Dinomite goes straight for it, yet getting him to eat anything at the table is impossible. This week we tasted sugar-sweet, salt-salty, cocoa-bitter, and lemon juice-sour. So far it's been a huge hit.

Our Family Tree
I drew a family tree on a piece of cardstock, with lines connecting family members. The kiddos will place family member pictures where they belong on the tree.

Family Interests Sorting
The kiddos will sort the items in the basket, placing them underneath a picture of each family member.

Land Form Matching
This time, I created landscape picture cards they're able to match up to the land form drawings. I know for me, this helped tremendously in learning the differences between each land form. It's been a hit with them as well. All of the photographs I've used are land forms in the United States of America. They thought this was really neat.

It's been a while since I've brought out this activity. The kiddos will match instruments to names, but also group them by type. Dinomite does very well with this!
