Kindergarten Day 3
Today is National Home Baked Cookie Day,
so in honor of that we read If you give a Mouse a Cookie
and used some cut out pictures of cookies to count.
I wrote the numbers 1-12 on a piece of paper and Princess put the correct number of cookies next to the corresponding number.
Then she colored a picture of Mouse from the
series web site (see previous post for link).
After breakfast she "read" to Mouse and Cookie Monster
while I cleaned up in the kitchen. We sorted some laundry
and folded some laundry and then we baked chocolate chip cookies. Princess really likes to bake, so I had her do most of the "work".
We read a couple more books while we waited for the cookies to come out
of the oven and then we had some milk and cookies. Princess colored a Jack o' Lantern
to add to our Halloween decorations and then did some drawing while I cleaned up from
our baking. Now she is having a good time playing with Cookie and Mouse while I download the pictures
and write this up. This afternoon we are planning on bringing up our Halloween and other Autumnal decorations
from the basement.Dinner will be homemade pizza that we started while we did the cookies (we already had the flour open).
