What's on the Shelves, and Spiders!

This last week we started a two week unit on the letter J, so we also added new activities to our shelves in the school room.
 The above shelf has Keanan's workboxes (with letter J printables), a shining pennies science experiment, sandpaper matching in a mystery bag, magnetic and non-magnetic sorting in the blue basket, ABC exercise cards, pencil sharpening (he LOVES this), flashlight disassembly, and some fall colors collage.
 This shelf has a counting sheet with red glass stone markers, stamping (Kyla's favorite of the week), Kyla's workboxes (with her letter J printables), magnet shape pattern sheet, and cookie cutter tracing - using the newly sharpened pencils by Keanan.

I also put together a new Halloween sensory tub for the kids that we are all enjoying.  It has a black bean base, fake pumpkins, some jack-o-lantern fuzzy streamers, fall leaves, and little plastic bats, skulls, and spiders.  
Speaking of spiders, Zac and the kids made a giant web in the family room last night!  The goal of the game was to stay on the web and go around and pick up all the little spiders.  We added the books to block off parts of the web to make it a little harder for Keanan.  Lots of fun!
Thanks to 1+1+1=1, Confessions of a Homeschooler, Montessori At Home, and No Time for Flashcards for all the great ideas this week!
