Preschool - K4: Letter C

Although we've changed how we are doing "school", we did complete some of our Letter C unit.  We didn't complete everything because I realized about 3/4 of the way through that our hearts weren't in it.  Below is the recap of what we did do.

RRSK:
While I love the Raising Rock Stars curriculum from 1+1+1=1, we are taking a break from using those printables.  We did complete a few...
Following directions..
Sorting...
Drawing things that start with the letter C.  The picture on the right is supposed to be our car - a Honda Pilot.  Not to bad for 5 years old! ;)
Learning sign language.  This is something she has always liked, so I think we'll continue to learn these.  My mom bought little flash cards/wall cards that we can use to practice and maybe I'll print these sheets out for review every once in a while.  Actually, I should probably print and laminate so that we can use them over and over.
Tracing the bible verse...
I also printed the craft activity from the Raising Rock Stars Preschool curriculum for the same verse. 

Letter C:
Tracing letters and letter hunt - both from Confessions of a Homeschooler...

We also made the letter C using different geometric shapes.


Sight Words:
She jumped at the chance to use our new stickers (thank you Target dollar spot) while we reviewed all of the sight words we've learned in the last year.  I was really proud of her for remembering the words we learned so long ago!
Our words this week in the You Can Read curriculum were "do", "all", "little", "we".  She traced the words...

connected the dots...
followed directions and circled the words in the correct color...
Using the starts again, she did the word path sheets from 3Dinosaurs...
She used her new markers from Santa to color her sight words by number...

While at the dollar store, we bought some more glass gems and I finally got around to hot gluing magnets to the back to create a new manipulative for the girls.  Mackenzie loved using the "magnetic gems" while doing the find the same sight words printables from 3Dinosaurs.


Miscellaneous:
She worked on matching color words from this set from Confessions of a Homeschooler.  It was fairly easy since the letters were color coordinated with the mat, but she still enjoyed it.
Tracing 2's (confessions of a homeschooler)...
Meredith and I picked up this foam puzzle at the dollar store a couple of weeks ago and Mackenzie insisted that it be part of our school activities.
One of my favorite things we did was counting to 100!  I printed and laminated these number cards from COAH this past summer and we are finally getting around to using them.  First, I had her sort them by color...
Then, we took each pile and laid them out in order.  On a side note about Mackenzie's memory...I told her we needed to find the 1 card and she said, "oh, that one is behind the 6."  When I picked up the pile of cards from 1-10, just below the 6 card, about 4 cards down was the 1 card.  It's crazy what she recalls!  Anyway, our table was perfect for all of the cards when we overlapped them a little.
Afterwards, she insisted on counting them all over again!  And even though she hasn't had 100 days of school, it sort of coincided with all the other 100 days of school celebrations.
Another dollar store find...beads.  They had fun practicing their fine motor skills while lacing beads on a pipe cleaner.
Pattern blocks...

So that's our wrap up for the letter C.  This isn't the end of my home preschool wrap ups with Mackenzie, but they will be a little different from here on out.  I'm hoping to recap books we read or different themes we do.  We'll see what the next 6 months bring!
