The ABC Bunny {B4FI♥AR}

~Boaz is 4 years, 5 months~

We focused on a general overview of the alphabet, signing our abc's, recognizing the letters and their sounds, abc order, upper and lower case matching, spelling our name . . . and of course, bunnies when I rowed The ABC Bunny with Malachi and Eliana at ages 3 and 5.

With Bo, our row of The ABC Bunny was to celebrate Bo finishing upper case letters in All About Reading Pre-reading, but we also listened to the ABC Bunny Song added in some animal classification, ABC Bunny Literature Printable activities, a simple weather theme, and to celebrate we had ABC Ice Cream Sundaes!

Wind & Weather

Like a Windy Day, What Will the Weather Be?, Wind, & Weather (An Usborne book from Sonlight Core A)

F for Frog - he's fat and funny "Looks like rain," says he to Bunny
G for gale ! H for hail ! Hippy-hop goes Bunny's tail

We've had several thunderstorms, rain, and... even hail over the last couple weeks and Bo learned what a gale is, all about wind, and...

what hail is.

We made a Rain Cloud in a Jar

Bo dropped water mixed with blue food coloring onto shaving cream clouds until the clouds became too heavy to hold any more water and then it rained! 

We read ABC's at the Store and talked about all the things we like to eat. 

We had a fun ABC Hunt at the grocery store to find an ice cream topping for every letter of the alphabet!

We made ABC Ice Cream Sundaes! 

First, Bo put the ABC leaf cards in alphabetical order. Then he matched each letter to the candy topping. (We had to get creative on E - English Toffee, and U - the U in a CRUNCH bar). And we had to have friends over to help us eat all that candy! (Half of which Mali, Elli, and Bo have never eaten because we generally don't eat food coloring.)

A - Almond Joy, B - Bottle Caps, C - Caramel, D - Dots, E - Heath English Toffee, F - Flipz, 
G - Gobstoppers, H - Hot Fudge, I - Ice Cream, J - Junior Mints, K - Kit Kat, L - Lemonheads,
  M - Milk Duds, N - Nut Topping, O - Oreos, P - Payday, Q - Quaker Quinoa granola bar,
 R - Reeses, S - Snowcaps, T - Twizzlers, U - CrUnch bar (Uno bar if you can find one), 
V - Red Vines licorice, W - Whoppers, X - CheX MiX Muddy Buddies, Y - Yogurt Raisins,
&  Z - Zero Brownie Bar 

The ABC Ice Cream Sundaes were inspired by our ABC Hunt in our row of The ABC Bunny with Malachi and Eliana. We had fun finding stuff from around the house for our ABC Hunt, but it was a lot of work to put it all away! I wanted something that I didn't have to put away this time, hence something edible! :) 

The ABC Bunny is a Before Five in a Row selection. There are a lot of Fun Things to do with B4FIAR, but the most important thing is to cultivate a love for learning. ♥
