Abby is 3 1/2 years old.
This past week was a bit extended and my blog writing quite overdue because of several reasons--I've been hit with an overwhelming need to organize and some Internet connectivity issues mixed with beautiful weather, as well.
Bible Verse: John 3:16
Sight Word: For
Abby is doing so well with her Bible verse memorization. We do review drills periodically throughout the week, mostly initiated by her, and she has remembered all five so far and takes such pride in herself.
Lacing yarn for her craft...
ABC's , 123's, Shapes, Colors and Theme Printables
We used themed resources from 2TeachingMommies.
Abby was teaching Dalmation Dog how to hopscotch in numerical order like she does at gymnastics.
She worked on number and letter tracing...
A cute shape activity...
Playing Candyland..a great way to encourage color, shape and counting skills, not to mention taking turns and winning and losing.
She put together a fun alphabet train puzzle while I made dinner.
Dalmation Dog also helped us during calendar time.
She also learned about parts of a flower.
You Can Read
Abby has done such a great job grasping sight words. I have found some days she has trouble with two certain words (can, and), while other days she has no issues. We have continued to review Unit 1 added to Unit 2 and I think that has really helped keep everything fresh. Her memory is pretty sharp when it comes to remembering what the word looks like. I have given her words verbally and she has verbally spelled them correctly back to me from memory...again some days are better than others. :-)
Unscrambling the letters to create her word...
She likes these prewriting sheets, but she struggles with the patience to take her time.
I made a sentence by combining both YCR units and had her read it to me. She thought it was alot of fun, so we made several sentence combinations.
And, she used our Melissa and Doug Alphabet Stamp set to stamp her sight words. This was probably her favorite activity!
Abby LOVES pancakes! She could practically live off them and well..milk. She decided to make her a pretend pancake Playdough snack and play Ina Garten by putting on her own Food Network show to show me what to do.
I mean.."How Easy Is That?!"
Building Dalmation Dog a house out of scrap wood.
Posing before sliding in her inflatable bouncer...
Completely wiped out after a long day of playing...
