Learning With Josiah

Josiah has finished his first week of Pre-K3! We’ve had a lot of fun learning with friends. I am doing a combination of preschool/tot school a few days a week with some of Josiah’s little buddies.

For our curriculum, I am using a combination of ideas found on Totally Tots, RRSP, Letter of the Week, various other websites, and my own ideas. We are doing a letter each week with activities, songs, and a memory verse.

Letter: L

Memory Verse: Matthew 5:16

Shape: Circle

Color: Yellow

Number: 1

Our Learning Board

Learning Board 001

Each day, we start our preschool day at our Learning Board. The three colored papers at the top are pieces of construction paper the I laminated with velcro dots at the top. They are for our Shape, Number and Sight Words for the week. Also included is our memory verse, song, and application for the week. The little colored pockets are for our props. These all come from RRSP.

I filled our Sensory Tub with LOTS of circles (left from Lexy’s Polka-Dot Party) and pom poms.

The idea, besides just having fun, was to use the tongs to pull out the YELLOW CIRCLES. We also talked about the different sizes and textures of the circles.


In the preschool workboxes, I put 9 different activities that the children can choose to do sometime throughout the week.
