Presidents, A Cat in a Hat, and Keeping my Little One Busy

Trying to post at least once a month so far so good. Today I am posting some pics about the month of February and early March. Also a picture about what I do with my Little Bits, many times when I tell people that I homeschool they ask me what I do with my one year old. Obviously she has a very short attention span so I usually give her things to keep her occupied:

Playing and Making a mess
Practicing Fine Motor Skills

Presidents Day- We studied about President George Washington and Abraham Lincoln this year: We read several books about both presidents. Also made two anchor charts one for each president. An my son had a smaller version to record our findings. After he did a sort with all the information we gathered and glued them on the appropriate presidents head.

Lincoln's Anchor Chart

Comparing the Two
 Dr. Seuss' Birthday: These are just a few of the things that we worked on I was completely blessed with a lot of the material you see by What the Teacher Wants! She had a giveaway called Dr. Seuss Wonderfulness giveaway and I was one of ten winners. So we did a lot of Dr. Seuss things this month!
