Calendar

Today's project with my preschooler was to make a calendar.We made a calendar of the days left in September & the rest of October. The point was to show her the days of the week, and to let her have her own calendar that she could count down to special events with.


She chose the sticker colour for playgroup & ballet class and put them on the calendar, then we chose special stickers for friends visiting, Grandma coming, etc.

She chose to hang it on the dishwasher, and is excited to show it off to everyone!


Observations:

She didn't seem to "get" the order of the boxes.

Writing the numbers on each day was an opportunity to discuss counting.

Things I Would Change:

I'm thinking of cutting the weeks out & pasting them onto a separate paper, to help her to understand the order of the days.

Could have let her write the numbers on the days & spent more time discussing the numbers & counting.

Modeling Clay


Using modelling clay that my husband found at a dollar store, we've been outside numerous times, having fun learning how to make pinch pots and worms/snakes and all kinds of things.

Talia has a great time getting messy and playing with the clay, then leaving it to dry. But heaven forbid a bee or similar-looking insect pay a visit to the backyard while she's busy with her artwork! (She fer-reaks out, and wants to come inside immediately!) lol :)

Mary ~ Portraits

A few months ago I held a contest for a free session and Heidi won. We finally got around to doing this session last week and got some photos of her youngest daughter, Mary. Here is a sneak peak for Heidi, of a few of my favourites.

Emily

For whatever reason, I ended up with qhite a few of Emily that I wanted to share. We tried quite a few different things with her that I liked the result of.

Emily wanted a picture to show the back of her dress, and this one is a definite favourite of mine:

Katie

I went out a few nights ago with Emily, Katie, and Amber, for a fun shoot that I've been wanting to do for quite a while.

They got dressed up and we went out to a couple of locations to play and take pictures :) It will probably take me a while to get through all of the photos, but I've gotten through the first few of Katie and thought I'd post a preview for her before I start on the next bunch, of Amber.
