R & S week was a little less “educational” and a whole lot of fun!! We took a “Road Trip” to Sea World!!!! There were plenty of “S” things hiding out in San Antonio so I made a few “R” activities for the down time! I found colored twizzlers (which taste horrible!!) but we used them to make Rainbows. I printed out Rain Gauge’s for Logan from Make Learning Fun so he could work on 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 measurements and he loved these! For Bennett, I printed out some race car tracers to work on pre-writing skills & numbering (each car was numbered so after he traced them all he had to put them in order from 1 to 10.) Logan of course did them several times too ;-). Our hotel was wonderful and had fire pits by the pools so we took the opportunity to Roast marshmallows several nights! But R really led to all the S fun! We did Sea lions, Shamu, Ski Show, every water Slide you can imagine and much more! In San Antonio they also have a Wild Life Safari and it was a highlight of the trip! Nate loved chucking all the food out the window & the big boys loved getting to stand and look outside the sunroof. We almost got eaten by an ostrich….seriously. It was awesome. We did our Hunt scripture memory & devotions during the trip and then spent a little more time with R & S when we got home. We used our spinny art thing and made Rainbow art. We sorted stars & shells with tongs. I also got a string of stars and they pulled all of the stars off (great for concentration!!). We did a rainbow magnet page and pulled out our “new toy” which is an alphabet box we’ve been making! We did all sorts of things with our R & S drawers!! (More on this to come!!) And let’s just say we read a LOT of Star Wars books from home as we did not make it too the San Antonio Library, ha!! So all in all R & S were wonderful! School starts in a week so we will be continuing our little adventure through the beginning of the school year….stay tuned for T, some new book & music reviews and the beloved Alphabet Box!
