Preschool K3 - Unit 14
Bible - Daniel in the Lion's Den
Letter - L
Theme - Animals
Science - Animal habitats
Sight Words: it, is, like, my
Now for the details and pictures...
We talked about Daniel and the Lion's den and made a cute little lion mask. Here's Mackenzie acting out the part of the lions! ;)
To go along with Lions, we studied the letter L. Tracing and writing L's are pretty easy for her, but if it's on a dry/erase sheet, she'll do anything! ;)
The Animal ABC's from 1+1+=1 were about Llamas and ladybugs...
I decided she might like looking at what we did last year in school for the letter L, so we pulled out our Raising Rockstars Preschool Binder.
Theme - Animals:
Since we were talking about Daniel and the lions den, i thought we would talk about animals also. 3Dinosaurs has an awesome animal pack that we used in our lessons. She did 4 number puzzles going all the way up to 40!
Science - animal habitats:
While discussing animals, we also added a very small study about animal habitats. I was going more for a general awareness that animals have different habitats, not necessarily for her to know all of the habitats and their animals. Again, 3Dinosaurs had a large number of animal vocabulary cards that we laid out and talked about.
filefolderfun.com to sort animals. This one was a little harder for us, but we figured it out and talked about each animal as we did it.
We were finishing up unit 3 of You Can Read which includes sight words my, like, it and is. She likes all of the activities in these units, especially when it involves choosing different colors and circling a particular word with a particular color. This fits her personality very well - everything has a certain place and certain way of doing something!
We also did other activities during the week. I found this printable of the ABC's to use with magnets. She seemed to like it pretty well, except I think I had too many magnets out in the beginning. As she started finding letters, I removed the duplicates of that found letter. That way, in the end it wasn't an overwhelming selection finding the correct letter.
This is the week we also did the ABC Gross motor activity, so we were pretty busy. I think this is probably the week just before my pregnancy nausea hit, so we were still doing our "normal" routine. The next couple of units we did were either filled with less activities or we took 2 weeks to complete. To be honest, I don't remember, so we'll find out when I upload those pictures and blog the next school post! Ha! ;)
