Week 17: October 23 – 27
This week we learned the letter sound “K”, table manners, stranger danger, standing up for your beliefs even if you stand alone, inside and outside concepts, triangle drawing, curved and straight concept, church leadership and their roles serving Christ and the body, and the Bible stories of Peter Released From Jail and Stephen the Helper.
Sensory fun! Homemade Pumpkin Pie Play Dough. All the children (5, 3, and 2 years old) loved it!
Week 16: October 4, October 9 – 12
On week 16 we learned the letter sound “L”, mazes, good manners, being polite, concept of curved and straight, and the Bible stories of John Baptizing Jesus and Martha and Mary.
Fun little fall craft we did with pipe cleaners and buttons. I found the idea off of Pinterest. We have been talking about the season change and how bright green leaves turn red, orange, yellow, and brown in the fall. So the buttons are “leaves” on our pipe cleaner trees. It was literally hours of fun playing with buttons and pipe cleaners… Braydon went on to make robots, houses “for tinkerbell and all her friends”, and other wacky, creative inventions. Total success!
Mashing bananas for banana muffins!
Seriously? Is this real life? Look at that handsome 5 year old! I love him so!
The ACE curriculum ministering to me this morning with this Marth and Mary poem.
We’ll be taking next week off as we head to Big Sandy, Texas for their annual Family Camp.
Week 14: August 31, September 4 – 6, September 25 – 26
On week 14 we learned the letter sound “H”, concept of short and long, things that are alike, vegetable and fruit food group, and the Bible Story of The Boy who Shared His Lunch with Jesus and Naaman who washed 7 times in the Jordan River.
This week I supplemented a lot with free online printables because we are SO far ahead in our curriculum. We did lots of color by numbers, started an ABC’s book, and did several review pages from preschool and kindergarten workbooks.
I also incorporated a math “booklet” from a K math book I bought. I staple the 5 pages together and we do 1 a day for the week. This is Braydon’s weakest area, so the more practice the better!
Daddy joined us one evening. He read Braydon’s story and Braydon loved it!
We had friends up from Florida evacuating Hurricane Irma for a full week! We did not do school that week. The following week we spent in Orlando, Florida at the Disney parks. We didn’t do school then, ether. So this week was split up by a lot!
First school day back from vacation! We eased into it with Paint Your Own Piggy Bank craft!
We made fall inspired “cloud dough” which is vegetable oil and flour. We put cinnamon in it and played with toy apples, measuring cups, and spoons. A fun sensory box play!
We also made paper chains to demonstrate tall and short.
Week 13: August 17, August 21 – 23, August 28
This week we learned the letter sound “D”, concepts of large and small, letter drills, the Bible Story of Neverending Flour and Oil and the Bible Story of Jonah and the Whale.
And just like that, we are 1/3 the way completed with Kindergarten! Crazy!
With old boxes the children decided to make ice cream truck signs. Certain treats were 2 and 3 dollars each.
