D is for Dogs

Today we started learning about the letter "D".  Today's theme was dogs.  Alex put together a letter D dog. I cut out all the pieces and directed him how to put it together. He drew to black spots on it.

Alex did a bunch of dog/puppy worksheets from Confessions of A Homeschooler.

Pre-writing skills...He's definitely improving!
 For a fun and messy activity we made some homemade dog bones for our dog. I got the recipe from Pink Pistachio's blog. They were simple to make and Lucy (our dog) LOVED them.

Lucky for us my Mom had a dog bone cookie cutter!

They are done!

Lucy approved!
Alex was kind of bummed out they weren't for him to eat. I guess he could have tried one, there isn't anything inedible in them. He got over it fast when he saw the lunch I made him.

I cut a blueberry Nutri-Grain bar to look like a dog bone, the dog is made from Nutella and peanut butter on whole wheat bread with M&M's for eyes and nose, and there was some Chex Mix all served up on a dog themed divided plate. Alex loved it all!

Its been raining for days so I let Alex got to watch one of his favorite movies, The Adventures of Otis and Milo
