Of course, I'm already a little behind posting about school. We're in the 4th week of school and I'm just now posting about week 2! We continued our bible lesson from week 1 with days 4 through 7 of Creation. Our memory verse stayed the same - Genesis 1:1, but we added new sight words, but I'll get to those in a little bit.
There were a couple of items from week 1 that we didn't complete, so we did them first on the first day of week 2. Tracing numbers:
We did our typical daily activities that I posted about in the Week 1 summary. She doesn't do everything every day, but we do a lot of it. However, we do talk about our states every day that we have school To keep track of the states, I placed a map from 1+1+1=1's calendar printables for us to color each time we talk about a new state.
On day for God made the sun, moon and stars. We continued our daily collage/picture sheets for each day of creation, so we (I) cut out a sun and moon and she added the star stickers. Unfortunately, I didn't take a finished picture of day 4. Just imagine about 20 more star stickers on this picture! ;)
Preschool Palace was appropriate.
We also made a sun for art. She painted the plate first and then once the paint was dry, she added the glue. I think the extra lines on the bottom left are supposed to be teeth. The spots on the right and left are the suns cheeks.
On day 5, God created the animals that can fly and swim. We had plenty of items for this collage - maybe a little too many flying animals. ;)
On day 6, God created all other animals and Adam & Eve. Mackenzie protested a bit at adding foil to the center of the collage, but once I taped it on the sheet and showed her how it's supposed to be similar to a mirror, she was ok with it. Silly girl.
On day 7, God rested. Per Hubbard's Cupboard suggestion, we glued a picture of the world on our paper and then put hearts all over it because God loves the world and all that He created.

Our sight words this week were "big" and "and". Since we learned 20 sight words last year, I'm trying to use a repeat word and a new word each week. "Big" was our new word. She didn't really enjoy the see it, build it, write it activity this week, but we'll keep trying it.
She played with this alphabet wheel from Confessions of a Homeschooler over the course of 2 school days! 26 clothespins is a lot of pinching for this 3 year old! She had to match the lowercase letters written on the clothespin to the uppercase letters on the wheel.
2 teaching mommies.
2 teaching mommies was fun because we took a look at our leaf and flower collage from week 1. We were able to see the veins in the leaves like the worksheet talked about, so that was nice to have it already on hand.
Well, that was week 2. We actually just finished up week 3 today, so of course I'll be a little behind posting about that, but I'm ok with that! ;)
