Zoo Week

Last week's theme for our morning activities was the ZOO! 
I really, really wanted to take both kids to the zoo, but seeing as it was 3957295 degrees outside (no really, the heat index was over 100 most of the week), that just was not going to happen last week. So our zoo trip has been postponed for when it cools off a little bit, probably November 😉 
But we did do lots of fun zoo activities instead!

Books we read:

Educational things:

Ella LOVED these, and she was actually quite good at them! I'm kicking myself for getting rid of the millions of these I used to have (laminated!) from teaching. 

{Ella doesn't know how to write the numbers, so after she counted each animal, I wrote the number with a highlighter for her to trace over}

Ella initially HATED this. She got really frustrated (because it was hard) and had a small temper tantrum. 

Luckily, she tried another "tool" (I got these off Amazon for less than $6!), and she had a bit more it was a win by the end of it.

Art projects:

Using our favorite dot markers again! 

And Ella's favorite zoo animal, a zebra!


Animal crackers, duh!

There were so many zoo activities on Pinterest, we really just hit the tip of the iceberg! Guess we'll just have to do some more next summer! (And hopefully we make it to the real zoo soon!)
