Along the Alphabet Path -- I Week

We have completed "I Week" once again using my plans that I try to make for each letter. My original inspiration comes from Serendipity . The story of Mrs Applebee and the books for each letter (if we have them) and then I adapt to our own particular interests and family.

In regards to the books for each letter.
I am tending to 'double dip' for some as I only use what we have in our home library, as our State Library is ....well a bit lacking and it can take months to get books, if they actually have them at all.

One thing about this week was the girls both knew how to write and recognise the letter I so we spent more time on the fun activities.

So here is our week in review.
Of course Laura Ingalls Wilder books were in use for this week again.
I Spy books
Indian Books
Other odds and ends of I books
Insect books
We had a lovely friend bring Moran these beautiful Iris's as she knew we were doing I week. Thank you Bernadette!
Our Montessori Insect matching set. We also did activities from Fantastic Folder! Insects
Imagination with a Jersey cow mask. We got these at AGFEST and the three little ones were playing cows with all the noises for days.
Cowboy Corbyn for Imagination
All working on Ants on a Log
Moran adding Ants
Myffy Creating Ants on a Log
Ants on a Log with Ants running toward to log--according to Myffwyn.
Igloo's or Indian Tee pee to eat other wise know as Snowballs
My very inexpert I black board for memorization
I Spy Bottles.
Autumn and I loved these when we first saw them after Kimberlee had them for her girls for I week. We have been waiting for I as we were so excited to do them.
Indians start with I
The ingrredients for our Igloo: sugar cubes for ice blocks and icing sugar to use as mortar.
Myffwyn's snow house- her own design
Making an Igloo is tasty. See Myffy licking her fingers.
Our Artic explorers wiht their model Igloo
Our Igloo from Sugar Cubes
I is for Imagination: This is our Tooth Fairy
Imagination - one cranky Grandma and two old grandpa's on wheel chairs (bouncy balls). All with their walking sticks to keep the younger folks in line.
St Ignatius from our Alphabet of Saints
I couldn't find a colouring picture of St Ignatius so Autumn drew one for me.
Felt Ice-creams I made quickly for Moran to play with.
I just quickly sewed up a cone shape out of felt and fluffed up some coloured fleece.
These were very popular for a game.
Our I sound pouch
Moran's work sheets on Letter I
Myffwyn's work sheets on the Letter I
Corbyn's few worksheet.

We also had ice cream to eat and Irish breakfast tea to drink.

We really enjoyed learning and singing these songs:
Incy Wincy Spider
Inchy Inch worm
I scream You scream we all scream for Ice cream.(this was a really big hit, read very loud..with the children)
Five Little Indians

All in all it was a very INTERESTING week.
