For Meredith's home preschool we are starting with the vowels first, so for week 4 we studied the letter E. We also talked about the story of Noah and of course rainbows! I didn't really plan to do a lot of stuff, but she really likes to do school at home, so I always end up adding more stuff as we do school. ;)
Our bible story/lesson was about Noah's Ark. I found a cute printable pack from 123 Homeschool 4 Me. I think there are quite a few printables she has that I *need* to download! ;) Anyways, Meredith had fun tracing and cutting...
I also downloaded a few activities from 1+1+1=1. She put numbers in order...
Our main introduction to the alphabet is through 1+1+1=1's Animal ABC's. She really enjoys learning about the animals and doing all the activities in the pack. I space out the tracing sheets over several days and she doesn't seem to get tired of tracing, so that's good. Usually, the tracing of the shapes ends in her coloring them all in with solid purple. At least she traced them first! ;)
The only time she colors/writes in something other than purple is for this coloring sheet. We usually take turns coloring, but I have her pick the color she wants me to use.
We did additional letter E activities like this dot marker and tracing sheets from Confessions of a Homeschooler.
Hubbard's Cupboard. And she learned how to sign the letter E.
Confessions of a Homeschooler and matched oral descriptions from 1+1+1=1.
I hadn't really intended to add a theme to our school activities for this unit because I thought we had enough with the Noah's Ark printables, but the rainbow activities were to cute to pass up and I already had them printed from when Mackenzie and I did the unit two years ago. She did great counting and matching numbers. She even new numbers 2 & 3 without having to count each dot.
Now for all the rest of the activities! She brought home her name recognition activities from school and was super excited to do them at home!
Our shape for the week was the SQUARE. She traced and then went on a shape hunt.
Alphabet puzzle. Both girls love this puzzle, so I need to get the uppercase puzzle.
We are slowly moving through our latest unit. School activities seem to be sort of like my blog and are pushed to the back burner while I take kids to and from school, help with homework and keep up with laundry. :/
