Along the Alphabet path.....F Week

This is the last of my catch up post on the Alphabet Path. F Week was quite a fun week with lots of hands on activities and not so much work sheet activities even though on our plans there was plenty of opportunity for these.

The girls seemed to understand F and could write it quite easily.
even so we still didn't get through all the activities I wanted to cover like making fairy houses and fairies from pipe cleaners.

We frankly just ran out of time even though it took 2 weeks.
We had so many books to read as you can see on our list .

So for a brief look at F Week in our Home, have a look around
Our F Week Display~
With Bees wax F's , Sandpaper letters a basket of Frogs and the F pages from the Alphabet books.
St Francis
All our Shirley Barber Fairy books.
Other Fairy books.
Some Australian Fairy books and other odds and ends
These are probably the favourite Fairy books in the house- well as well s the Shirley Barber ones
Frances books are such fun to read
St Francis Books we read
Farm related Books

I drew some pictures of Families. I am so inept at drawing!!

The Food we used was Grape Jelly and strawberry pudding
