RRSP: Letter N and Birds Theme unit
This week's letter was "N". And since nest starts with N, I added a bird/nest unit to our week. We only did 2 days of school, since we went to the strawberry patch on one of our school days. We didn't even come close to doing all of the things I had planned, but since we had a field trip and went outside for some fresh air, instead, that's ok. ;)
This week's verse was, "No one can serve two masters" Matthew 6:24. We spent a little time discussing why the girls praying had a check mark above her, while the boy holding all of the money had an "X" above him. The concept of "master" is a little too big for her, but she understood the basic principle of following God's commands and loving him. This is her coloring her verse...she got a little tired at the end, so we have big scribbles on this one.
Homeschool Creations and 1+1+1=1 were fantastic. We did a few more activities than pictured below and still managed to leave out a lot! That just leaves more to do next year! ;)
Size sorting birds/nests. In the past, we've only sorted sizes by going smallest to largest/largest to smallest, so the concept of sorting small, medium, large was fairly new. She did great, though. I taught her how to find one each of the smallest, then the largest and then the remaining size would be medium. Once those were determined, she matched the remaining pieces.
I asked her at the beginning of the week what she wanted to play with at some point and she said play dough. Using laminated numbered sheets, she created a few numbers with her play dough and was glad she got to play with it.
This week, the letter Z...and another exciting field trip. Can you guess where?
