Last week, Maureen's "schoolwork" focused on shapes... we did plenty of "learning games," some of which included taping shapes on the floor and doing patterns on the felt board. Even though my intention is to teach Maureen, Josephine and Veronica are right there next to us, begging to be included :) Of course, I let them join in on the fun. Veronica has, in the process, learned to recognize and say the names of several shapes, too! They all had a blast with the shapes (made with tape) on the floor - you would have thought I took them to an amusement park and gave them cotton candy or something!
Last week, Michael took Josephine and Maureen to his studio to paint. He bought them each two canvases to paint on, and they had a great time with Michael. Michael said Maureen wouldn't smile for the camera because they were about to leave the studio, and she wasn't happy about that!
