We've made it to Europe!  Italy is week 10 in our 12 week "Exploring Our World"first semester curriculum bundle that is available here.  Check out some of our classroom pictures!
Our theme board this week was filled with lots of cards showcasing Italy's amazing architecture.    Kylie was not convinced when I told her Italy was shaped like a boot.  "No Momma.  Italy is not shaped like that," she said and pointed to one of her Daddy's boots.
 Our wake up, warm up math activities this week focused on ordering by size.  We placed shoes and spoons in order from small to large, and in the picture above we "made" pizza with different size crusts and toppings!
S and T were the letters of the week.  In this wake up, warm up activity, we played one of our favorite games "What doesn't belong?"
Our art activity this week was so fun, Kylie asked to do it again the next day!  We laid on our backs and painted (well, colored because I forgot we were out of paint) like Michelangelo did at the Sistine Chapel!
 Days of the Blackbird  was one of the book selections for the Italy unit.  The artwork is fantastico!
**Home CEO Hack**  We love our local library!  But sometimes they don't have particular books at our branch so they have to get them on loan from another library which takes about a week.  If you plan on getting the book selections from your library, I suggest planning a few weeks in advance just in case your local branch doesn't have them.
It is time for the letter sound train!  This week, we met Sergio and Teresa.
I went to refill my coffee and I came back to this!  I want to yell from the top of a mountain, "I love these letter crafts!!!"  Want the upper case set?  Click here. 
"Christmas tree doesn't start with the letter T," Kylie said when I brought out this worksheet.
 I think this is my favorite cooking recipe of the semester!  We topped this sweetened ricotta with strawberries after we had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner.  Mangia!
We love hopping on the computer during our social studies block and looking at a large map of our country of the week.  We see what countries and bodies of water are next to it, if it is bigger or smaller than its neighboring countries, and how long Google tells us it will take to drive from the country we learned about last week.  It would take about 43 hours to drive from Israel to Italy if anyone was curious ;)

I hope everyone enjoyed a peek into our classroom this week.  You may be saying to yourself, "Where was Kylie's math lesson?"  This week was supposed to be an encouragement elves week, our once a month service activity.  But it was over 90 degrees all week, so I made an executive Mom decision to do them next week since chocolate spoons and Southern California weather is non bueno.
