I switched up the sensory tub to a Fall theme. It is full of leaves, pinecones, hickory nuts, walnuts, acorns, and 2 magnifying glasses.
Lexy's School Day:
We start our mornings with calendar, prayer/song, breakfast, devotions, and chores. After that, we do a few planned activities with Josiah for tot school. If I have some things planned for the theme of the week that they can both participate in, we do these in the morning. However, most of Lexy's schooling is done during Josiah's nap time. We spend about an hour of planned school each day.
Lexy begins by completing a few pages in her phonics book (Get Set for the Code). Then we begin on her workboxes for the week. To read more about our workbox system, check out this post.
This week, she worked on the letter s and n in her phonics book. Then, these are some pictures of her working on workboxes (which she was very excited about).1. Forming "S's" out of playdough
2. Making and completing apple patterns. She really enjoys making patterns!
3. Our Science theme right now is Apples. Her Science workbox included a book about Apples, an apple, and apple sequencing cards. We read the apple book and completed the experiments in the book with her apple. These included, locating the 5 parts of the apple, predicting/couting the number of seeds in her apple, predicting if it would sink or float, and tasting it!
4. Apple Numbers- For Math, we reviewed the numbers 1-20. Here, she put the numbers in order.
5. Muffin Match from Happy Phonics. We reviewed matching capital and lower case letters. Lexy does not enjoy feeling "quizzed." So, to add a little fun to it, I threw in a chef's hat, apron, mitt, and mixing spoon.
We located Washington on the United States map. Washington grows the most apples out of all the states. We placed an apple on the state to remind us of this. (Okay, really it's a cherry, but it's all I had).
We had a great first week of preschool. To see what other preschoolers are up to, check out the Preschool Corner at Homeschool Creations. And, be sure to check back in a few days to see Josiah's Tot School post!
