Family Photos

Family Photos!

I look up to my Daddy

Every father should remember that one day  his son
will follow his example
instead of his advice
( A quote my Mommy likes )

Having fun with Daddy!
Mommy's friend Candice Hackett had us meet her at Lincoln Park in West Seattle to take our family photos. Mommy and Daddy were THRILLED with how the pictures turned out and I have to say....I am pretty impressed myself. You can view the rest of our family photos here and Candice's contact info: http://projecthursday.com/2012/09/25/the-hoffmans-family/ . If you like what you see, you should schedule a shoot! Candice is pretty cool. ;)

Letter A - Alphabet

First Day at Hoffman Tot Academy!
My first week at Tot School, I learned the sounds/letters of the Alphabet
We read  the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom book
from the "Books To Grow On" Alphabet Kit from the King County Library
 and then made a coconut tree craft.

We made it from  a toilet paper roll and letter stickers from Dollar Tree

Mommy wrote letters on the clothespins and I had to match the uppercase letters
with the lower case letters using the laminated Alphabet Sheet

It was tough for me to squeeze the clothes pins and clip them on to the matching letters.
I got tired of it quickly and went on to something else

I did the matching grid that Mommy printed off from:
That was fun!
Learning how to cut with scissors....

Alphabet Puzzle

Another Alphabet puzzle
Mommy and I sounded out the letters of the Alphabet
as we put the letters in

Alphabet Treasure Hunt
Mommy hid letters all over the house for me to find.
Once I found the letter, I used a marker and crossed it off my letter chart!

Mommy took a metal baking tray and drew letters on  it.
She then gave me alphabet magnets and had me match them up and we made the sounds of each letter as we matched them.

Huge alphabet floor puzzle!
Once we put it together, Mommy turned on some music
and we danced on it

Leap Frog Alphabet game
There are lots of fun games on this that help me learn
the sounds and letters of the Alphabet
The Letter Factory is a fun and great DVD when
it comes to learning the sounds and letters of the Alphabet

Playing yet learning at the same time

Making the V sound

Matching the sounds/letters of the Alphabet with pictures

During the week while we were running errands Mommy
played this CD in the car.
We read lots of Alphabet books from the Books to Grow On kit and used the additional teaching tools it provided.  Mommy and I are big fans of Books to Grown On... and the best thing of all?! The King County Library provides the kits for FREE!
   That concludes my first week of the sounds/letters of the Alphabet!! For free printables and great resources, please visit: http://www.1plus1plus1equals1.com/ or my Mommy's Pinterest Board - Sarah Hoffman, Homeschool

Pool Time

Mommy was going to take me into the pool,
but she chickened out and said it was too cold

I decided to go in myself

Brrrr...she was right!

Daddy was brave though..
He helped ease me in

I liked this view the best!

Daddy and I finally convinced Mommy to go in, but
she was squealing with every step she took

sharing some giggles

playing football

having fun with Mommy and Daddy
Family Photo
We visited my Godparents Stephanie and Aaron in Spokane last month. I had a blast hanging out and getting some pool time in!

The Cove

Hung out with Mommy
at The Cove along with Daddy and their
 friends Candice and Jonathon

Mommy doing double duty
with her Smores stick!

Watched Mommy as she created a special Smore for me
Have you ever tried a peanut butter cup in a Smore instead of chocolate?!
 If you haven't, I highly encourage you to try it.

learning patience

Worth the wait!

You won't be disappointed!
