First Week Wrap Up {a little late!}

I had high hopes of getting this post done Sunday and making visual plans, but our internet didn't agree with me. Lightning hit and since we live in the sticks basically, we had to wait to get up and running {and by up and running, I mean I'm connected with a phone cord to the modem because we don't have wireless again yet :/ }. So, it's a little late and the pictures are not edited, but here's just a little of what we did last week {it's so hard to remember to snap pics when you're teaching little ones how to sit, stand, line up, etc. for the better portion of the day!}
We did a lot of fine motor activities from my back to school printable pack. I'm shocked at how well my kids already cut and glue just from practicing for a week!

For morning work, we've been doing a little alphabet page to practice cutting and gluing also. When the kids finish, I have them tell me the letter and its sound.
Of course, we read all about Pete the Cat. First, we read Rocking in My School Shoes and the kids loved it! We took a tour of our school, stopping to take pictures of each place with our rockin' school shoes. Here we are with our principal and assistant principal. I seriously work for the best ladies ever!!

We also practiced our names by making these rockin' guitars my awesome friend Kelley created. The kids loved these! Her craft has different letters, but I had these stickers hanging around, so we used them for this.

Then, we read Pete the Cat Too Cool For School. This might be my new favorite Pete book! We retold the story, dressing Pete the way his friends wanted him to dress, then dressed him the way he liked. We learned that if you want to be cool, just be you!

And what beginning of school would be complete without jitter juice?? {thanks Abby!} My kids loved it and it was the perfect end to the first day!
 We also started numbers and shapes, but I'm going to save that for another post {my bed is calling my name and my sweet baby girl has allergy testing in the morning - boo!}. If you're already in school, I hope it's going great and if not, rest up!
