This week at preschool Jasper's class is learning about their name.

One of Jasper's homework assignments was to spread pudding or whipped cream on a cookie sheet and then write his name in it.  Needless to say he LOVED this assignment.

Chocolate pudding painting has been a popular past time this last month at home and in my Sunbeam class at church.

His other assignment was to go through a page of a magazine and circle the letters that are in his first name, and/or cut out the letters in his first name.

Last week homework included writing Jasper's name with a highlighter and having him trace over the letters with a pencil.  This is one of our new favorite activities.

We also were assigned to put the names of everyone in our family on a slip of paper.  Jasper pulled the papers out and tried to recognize whose name it was.  Since we only have three people in our immediate family we included Grammy Michelle, Papa Cary, Great Aunt Shauna and Jasper's adopted Grandma Sharon.

Below are the books Jasper's class is reading.  We reserved them at the Library, so we haven't read them yet.

Our Tree Named Steve by Alan Zweibel

I'm pretty sure even my girls would love that! BTW- we printed off the "conference squares" you linked us to and they were a big hit (they helped me concentrate too :)!
