This week is Letter I for inchworm. After circle time we got right to our theme mostly because I was so excited to show them gummy worms!
We used the worms to make the Letter I and then Timmy used measuring tape to see how long they were.
Next we did some alphabet review games. I wrote all the letters on rocks. No matter where my kids go I will be sure to find rocks in their pockets so I knew this would be a hit. Anyways so they had to match the letter rock to the flash card and whoever got it right could put the rock in their dump truck.
Then they had to match foam uppercase letters to their lowercase clothes pin. This was harder especially with letters who’s lowercase looks so different. It was still good for Grace’s fine motor skills even though she wasn’t matching the right letters.
On Tuesday we had a lot of fun. My most proud moment has to be that Timmy is almost saying the entire Pledge on his own. Luckily I got it on video!
We made the Letter I with playdoh and measured playdoh inchworms.
On Wednesday we went to a princess tea party. The city puts it on with cupcakes and a real princess, this time Tinkerbell. Timmy was in love.
Grace dressed up as Minnie Mouse but ultimately ended up in a cape and some heels.
We did out letter I do-a-dot and poking worksheet. It’s interesting to see the difference in their work.
They love board games. So far today we’ve played perfection and hi ho cherrio.
We did a hungry caterpillar puzzle, measured it because we have to measured everything these days and then we read the book.
On Friday Daddy joined us for circle time. Then we made our memory bracelets, traced the letter I and sorted upper case I from the lowercase i.
Timmy painting with his mouth..interesting.
Another happy homeschool week. This week I read an article about how wealthy families in Boston and NYC are homeschooling now. One of the girls the story was about just got into Harvard! It’s so awesome how even Top 10 schools are accepting homeschooled applicants. It excites me!
