I decided to use the Joyful Heart Character from Hubbard’s cupboard as a guide for Ellie’s preK curriculum. It includes a Bible story, character trait, letter, math activity, and theme each week. It also includes sight words and a sight word reader each week. So far this is working well for us.
Bible Story: Creation
Character Trait: Orderly
Theme: Back to School
Our letter wall from last year. These were so fun to make. (For some reason we forgot to do F…maybe I can find time this week) We may try the lowercase letters this year.
Trays for the week:
letter matching color words from COHS
sorting colored pom poms
a few worksheets as well as pages from our Kumon workbooks
sticker patterns (she had already finished this when I took the picture)
This week we also reviewed our color words. Each day we talked about a different color, named things were that color, and then cut out an object of that color.
Some other things we did this week:
We practiced drawing apples from our Kumon drawing book. Ellie then wrote sentence about her drawing.
gluing and writing our new sight words: we / will
making an A with play-doh
some activities from a back to school PreK pack
We read Chicka Chicka 123 and placed number stickers on our tree.
We also read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. We then made a chicka tree and used our letter stamps to stamp the letters up the tree.
Liam’s debut in Tot School:
Colored sticks and an empty can kept him busy for a long time..who knew? He played with these all week.
Bible Story: Samuel
Theme: Brown Bear / Outside
