Our unit was for the letter "R", the number 19, sight word "it" and our memory verse was "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy." Exodus 20:8. I also added a unit on Peter Pan from Homeschool Creations. I usually try to make the extra units have a connection to our letter unit, but sometimes, like this time, I just picked one I knew she would like.
Lately, she's been using just one color when coloring. In fact, this past Sunday, she colored during the entire church service with a brown marker. Everything in the coloring book is brown...water, fish, clothes...everything. On this day, she chose purple.
Our craft was making this church. We colored the parts together and then she glued all of the pieces on. She was a little annoyed with me that I didn't cut out the itty bitty door knob that was supposed to go on the door. ;)
My mother-in-law, let us borrow this united states puzzle and we really like to put it together. My favorite thing about it, is that each state is it's own puzzle piece, so it makes it easier for her to understand the actual shape of the state. She's knows what Texas looks like and where it goes, so that's all that matters! Ha! Just kidding! ;) I try to say if we know someone who lives or lived in each state, so every time she picks up a state, she asks, "who's in this one?" ;)
best kids activity EVER! ;)
Peter Pan unit:
The next several pictures are all about tracing, but she really liked doing them.
This week and next week we are working on our different letters and then an extra unit on the Olympics. I'm still thinking we'll finish the alphabet by then end of August, but as always, it depends on how busy the next few weeks are.
