Sweet P is 29.5 mos old
I don't even want to know how I'm going to try and remember what we did for Letter E, especially since a Baby Brother came at the end of Letter F and we're now at the end of Letter G! But I'm going to give it a whirl! Auntie RoRo was here for all of letter E.
Our verse: "Every good and perfect gift is from above." ~James 1:17

Letter E collage: We did her letter E collage on the letter E this week instead of making a letter animal. Auntie RoRo found some awesome "eco-friendly" themed stickers for this activity.
Paper bag Elephant: This was a simple craft and she fed him food from her grocery store.
E is for eye: Sweet P and Auntie RoRo did this octopus while we were in the hospital. This is another page out of our coloring book that has eye stickers.
E dot page with stickers: Same as previous weeks, we used star stickers for the dots this time after she dotted each dot with a dry erase marker.
E is for Ear: Auntie RoRo made this ear and had Sweet P color it while we were in the hospital. She was too cute holding it up to her ear. They also talked about how ears are for listening.
Dry erase spelling: We do this each week, this is just the first time I remembered to take a picture of the board since I had the camera in the basement. We have Melissa & Doug animal magnets and I fish through them each week for an animal that starts with that letter (obviously there isn't always one). Pretend those are an elephant and that the letters spell Elephant. I take the magnets off and write the word and have her place the matching letters on the board.
E doadot from DLTK: Sweet P dotted this in blues and greens.
Earth doadot from DLTK: This was also done in blues and greens and we talked about the Earth.
Lowercase e coloring page from Developing a Heart for Home: These are the cutest coloring sheets! We have one for each letter and it is a color by number activity. This was the first we did and it was a little tough for her, but the other 2 we've done she has done really well! She colors the numbers first and eventually colors the rest of the item. E is an elephant.

Dominoes: We did several activities with dominoes, including building fences and train tracks.
We visited the Bridges of Madison County with Auntie RoRo and Uncle Will this week, went to the farm and visited the Sculpture Garden downtown. It was a super warm week so she even got to play in the little splash pools downtown (even though the water was FREEZING!).
I know I'm missing activities and maybe Auntie RoRo and can remind me of a few things. We had a great week with Auntie Ro and Uncle Will and got to meet Baby Brother at the end of the week!
