Bible: Feeding the Multitudes
Letter: B (as in bread)
Theme: Brown Bear, Brown Bear
Sight Words: big, said, come, in
Below are the details.
Our lesson for this unit was about Jesus feeding the 5000 in Matthew 14:13-21. We read the story and then did several different crafts (one of which I can't find any photos of). For one of the crafts involved gluing oatmeal to brown construction paper to look like a loaf of bread.
1+1+1=1 for a rainbow basket weave art project. She painted rainbow stripes on a paper and after it had dried, I cut out strips of paper for her weave through. The result is a pretty basket weave.
For our letter of the week, I chose B (as in bread from the story). Not to long ago I laminated the letter hunt sheets from Confessions of a Homeschooler. This way, I can just go find the letter I need and she can easily search for the given letter. Now I don't have to print them again if we use them this coming year again or when we use them with Meredith and Miranda in the future.
She also matched the pictures for the letter B using the ABC Find It! printables from 1+1+1=1.
animal ABC sheets were about bears and butterflies.
Since we were talking about bears, I thought we might do a theme on our Brown Bear, Brown Bear book. First we read our book...
preschool pack to match the animals in the book. Both girls took turns matching their own set of animals.
Roll and graph was a favorite, as usual!
We finished up the You Can Read Unit 6 and our words were "big", "said", "come", "in".
3 dinosaurs - find the same sheets and sight path sheets.
We did quite a few miscellaneous activities for this unit. One of them was to talk about baking. Initially, I had intended for us to make some bread, but we never got around to it. Instead we talked about baking measurements and did a few baking worksheets I found online.
Mackenzie used to write her name a lot and has know how to spell it for some time, but recently I noticed she was forgetting how to do this, so in preparation for preschool this year when she won't be with me, I had her practice writing her name a few times on the dry erase board. I think I need to do this one a week so that it becomes consistent and easier for her to do.
Since I was trying to pick a paint color for the girls' shared room, I decided to take home some cute paint sample cards for a memory game.
What Meredith does...
She LOVES dot markers and was concentrating very hard while marking up this extra sheet of paper we had!
So that's our last complete unit. We didn't finish the last 9 lessons I had planned which is a bummer. I'm sure if I got my act together and got things planned I could do two more lessons before the end of the summer, but between planning their birthday party, summer activities and preparing for baby Miranda, it just doesn't seem likely. But you never know, it could happen!
