Preschool-Kindergarten June 24-30

We had a great busy week. We celebrated a friend's birthday at the local Fun Depot, We had a water playdate at our house, and we had a cook-out with the cousins, and we went to the library twice this week. On Thursday at the library they had a fire and ice day. The local firemen came and talked about fire safety and let us see the fire trucks and they brought the smoke house and the boys got to go in and learn what to do if we had a fire in our house. It was a great learning trip for the boys.

C working on his sight words. He chose to make them with glitter glue this week.

Trip the the fire and ice event at the library.

Field Trip

Cook-out with the cousins and a little night time slip-n-slide.

Warming up by the fire!

B. Worked on the letter I some this week. We did not get around to everything but we will do some more next week.

Sight word color by number from the moffett girls.

We made this cute ice cream cone using handprints.

This idea came from 2 teaching mommies.

The boys LOVED making these.

Pool fun! They are also playing with their new

Cars 2 cars.

We used Crayola color bubbles to make pictures. I taped

paper to a tree and the boys blew the bubbles at the paper.

They had sooooo much fun. Yes, it was a little messy--so messy

in fact that they had to get in the pool to get the color bubbles off

of them before we could go back in the house. BUT it was

soooooooooo much fun!!

The boys are CARS crazy. We had to go see the new movie on

opening day and they both loved it.

This is just a little craft when they got

to paint Lightning McQueen.

Our week was great. We started today doing some 4th of July activities. I will post them early next week along with more reading activities for C and some more letter I work for B.

Favorite pictures from the week.

I hope everyone has a very happy and safe 4th!!!

I am linking up to field trip Friday here.

We took a trip to the beach at the end of May and stayed until June 5th. We had the best week!! The weather was just perfect and the beach was not crowded and the boys became little fish. They went down big water slides, both got really brave and would jump in the deep end, and they would even go under water and retrieve dive sticks. They were given little green bracelets to wear to the water park that our hotel has and it is now June 27th and they still have them on. I guess they think if they keep them on we will go back soon.

WOW! Our Spring was so much fun and so so busy. I began doing Preschool with B and Kindergarten with C on June 6th. After taking some time off and enjoying a beach trip we are back into the swing of things.

June 6-22
started a book worm on June 6th to see how many books we could read before C begins school in the middle of August. Each time we read a book we add the name of the book to a circle and the date and add it to our word worm. The boys LOVE this.

Preschool-- B recognizes most upper case letters but we are going to review them over the summer while also working on the lower case letters--

He loves the do-a-dot sheets from here.

Play-Dough alphabet mats--B loves these alphabet play-dough mats from 1+1+1=1

C rainbow writning and C is for cotton.

The boys had a great time at the beach so we have been doing a beach theme. B made these C crabs from Homeschool Creations

Jelly Fish--

Shaving cream fish---

Shaving cream letters --

B loved preacticing his letters in the shaving cream. He also practiced writing his name.

C is so ready for kindergarten. We are working on sight words and he is beginning to read a lot of his own books. We are doing a mixture of the sight word programs from here and here.

C's drawings. He has a Learn to Draw Zoo animal book that he used to make these drawings.

Sight word play-dough and Do-a-Dot sight words.

Sight word color by word, Sight words in shaving cream and sight word puzzles.

We have had a wonderful beginning. We are now back into a routine and hopefully I will post weekly now. Next week we are planning on doing an ice cream theme and some 4th of July activities.
