We are already wrapping up Unit 7 and yet here I am posting about Unit 5. Eventually, I'll catch up with our school activities. Looking back at the pictures, I've realized how little I did with Unit 6 & 7. We had a little school lapse in the last few weeks and you'll definitely notice in the next few posts. But for now, Unit 5 was LOADED with different activities.
Here is the breakdown of what we studied in Unit 5:
Bible Story: Abraham, Sarah and Issac
Science: Feelings (not really science, but it's definitely not math! Ha!)
Theme: Autumn Fairies
Sight Words: is, for
Bible Verse: For nothing is impossible with God. Luke 1:37
And now for the details...
We first read the story of Abraham and Sarah (Abram and Sarai) praying for children and the laughing when God told them they would have a son. 1+1+1=1 had these cute coloring sheets to go along with the story.
South Florida church of Christ's youth curriculum. While I don't agree with all of their beliefs (instrumental music being one), I like some of their lessons and craft ideas. Making this star collage was one activity that she really enjoyed making. So simple and yet, so fun for her.
Bible and Rhyme Curriculum.
We did a few letter F activities, but I only took a picture of two of the activities. First, I borrowed an idea for some gross motor skills from 3 Dinosaurs. She blogged about it the week we were doing the unit and since we were already going to be studying the letter F, it was perfect.

We talked about feelings for our science lesson. I blogged about one of the activities here, but below is the overall collage and a hint of the fun, thanks to the printables from 1+1+1=1.
Bible and Rhyme.
An Autumn Fairies preschool pack from Over the Big Moon was our additional theme packet in this unit. It was full of a variety of activities she loves to do.
Tracing and Counting...
The sight words I chose for this unit were "is" and "for". I try to choose at least one word from our memory verse, but this time both were in the verse.
Read, Build, Write...
Sight word Paths from 3 dinosaurs...

I love when certain activities spawn other unplanned activities. After feelings bingo, Mackenzie wanted to play with the colored blocks. We sorted them, counted them and of course just played with them to build pyramids, towers and whatever we wanted.
We wrapped up Unit 7 today and now after writing this post, it looks like I need to vamp up unit 8 for next week! We always seem to do better when we have a lot planned for school and now that Meredith takes one nap a day at just about the same time every day, we actually did school every day this week. Time for me to start planning and writing lesson plans!
