One of Cricket's favorite things about Rapunzel (in the movie) was that she painted. So, we began the week by painting with our easel and water color palette. Cricket loved it, she kept smiling and saying "I'm an Artist".
I also decorated her classroom with the sun banners from the movie and set up these cut out dolls.
After Cricket explored the cut out dolls, I had her act out a story that I transcribed for her.
Cricket quickly and happily worked through the couple of Rapunzel pages I made for her. I made this color identification sheet, a how many are there sheet, and a See, Spell, Write page. I don't want to post them because I don't have the rights to the Disney images, but if you want them for personal use just leave a comment with your email address.
We had a lot of fun reading her Tangled book for the Tag Reader together and doing the moon activity that she "earned". Cricket also picked out a Tangled easy reader on her birthday.
By the way, this made me so proud and happy. I took her to Toys R Us with a $3 off coupon hoping to find something inexpensive as a special treat. I will say Cricket did oooh and aaah over some big ticket items, but she steered me to the books and picked out an easy reader. She hugged it and read it through the rest of the story, and all the way home. I LOVE that she loves books!
I also gave her a paper doll and clothes for the first time, and she still has them stashed away to play with.
Cricket also got back into coloring this week, maybe because we were more relaxed. This one was also a Tag reward. (Please ignore the gloves, it's not really that cold in our house. Cricket was just accessorizing in her own special way)
She thought that completing Flynn was funny. The Disney site actually had several great activities.
Cricket loved seeing her birthday up on our calendar this month, and we had a countdown on the fridge that she enjoyed marking off.
Not Rapunzel themed, but at Cricket's request we did a lot of the power point's from 1+1+1=1 this week. Her current favorite is the new counting one. If you aren't a member yet, you should really check it out.
