Preschool Week 21 snow/winter

We had a great busy week. We had a lot of things going on. One thing that we did not get a picture of was Play and Learn where we go to a local school for fun and literacy activities. It is a great program. Our Bible verse this week was again Wash me and I will be whiter than snow. Psalm 51:7 We did our daily devotions and worked on the Bible story about Paul going to Phillipi.

C just finished his first semester at The Little Gym. On Monday he had his big show and a lot of family members attended and he just thought he was the stuff. He LOVES The Little Gym.

C put the snowmaen cards from Confessions of a Homeschooler in order from 1-10 and then he counted out mini marshmallows to match the number on each card. He is great with 1-10. Now we will start with 10-20.

C matched snowflake cards from Confessions of a Homeschooler. He did this several times and then we played memory with the cards.

C used dab-a-dot painters to make the letter s from Making learning fun.

C is very interested in words right now so we began working on sight words this week. We worked on the word go and he did some rainbow writing of the word and then dictated a sentence to me with the word go in it. We printed the word go from Making Learning Fun! I wrote the sentence at the bottom of the page but left a blank space for the word go and he wrote it in. He then looked through several books for the word go.

We folded and cut tortillas like snowflakes and then fried them with a little oil and put pawdered sugar on them. Charlie loved them--he said, "These are so yummy!!"

C got to sing and play the handbells at church this week. His teamkids class did the music for the Wednesday night service. I was very proud of him. He did a great job on stage.

I ended up working today at our Church preschool so we did not get any of todays activities done but that is ok we will work on them next week. Our theme will again be winter and snow and we may throw in some Jan Brett books too. I hope to be a little more organized next week and get a little more done!
