We studied about the life cycle of a bumblebee again today. I blew up a yellow balloon and then put black tape on the balloon to resemble the bee stripes and then we put eyes and antennea on the balloon too. It made a very cute bee! I then read a poem about the honeybee while David acted it out with his balloon honeybee. David practiced his phonics all the way up to letter W. He is really starting to get his sounds and associate them with words. It is really neat to see how they progress and slowly learn this process. David also played some PBS games on the computer that helped him with some alphabet and addition and subtraction. We will be making some Spring cupcakes today which will be a learning process all in itself and I will have David count the number of cupcakes we made and also help with the measuring and other baking and cooking parts. It has been a fun day with our homeschool today. I hope all of you have a nice day.
