Preschool Corner- RRSP: Letter Z, YCR: Unit 5 and Zoo Theme

Friday, July 13, 2012

Abby is currently 3 1/2 years old. 

Preschool Corner


Color: Yellow
Number: 11
Sight Word: Down
Bible Verse: Zacchaeus, make haste and come down for today I must stay at your house.

This week's Bible verse was fun for Abby.  We were able to read the story of Zacchaeus daily and she had a story to relate to the verse.

And, she decided to be in charge of calendar time for a day.

ABC's, 123's, Shapes, Colors and Theme Printables

Our theme this week was "Z for Zoo" and we used themed resources from both 3Dinosaurs and 2 TeachingMommies.

Counting and number identification...

Cutting practice...

Beginning sounds...

Shapes and colors...

I found this BINGO set at Target a few weeks ago in the dollar section.  We modified it and played based on identifying numbers.

Also found at Target, this puzzle which required patience my little one was not in the mood to have.

I pinned this craft on my Zoo Theme board on Pinterest.  There were zoo animal cookies playing, but were soon used as a snack.

You Can Read


Usually, we spend at least two to three weeks before beginning a new YCR unit.  However, she grasped Unit 4 pretty quickly.  We will continue Unit 5 into next week and continue to review previous words.  She has now learned 20 words!

Field Trip

It finally cooled down enough to do something outside, so Abby and I took a trip to the zoo.  We also took several new paths through the zoo to explore areas that we normally are too tired to see or that were new.


We took a new path and got a VERY close up view of the Ostrich.

These zebra buddies decided to taunt a lone zebra across the exhibit, needless to say, we got to see a little scuffle which was interesting.

Abby's favorite..the Giraffes.

Finally, we made our way to the swinging bridge!



Abby thought the Camels where pretty neat, usually they are hidden in the shelter, however, they probably feel quite at home here lately in the desert like conditions we've been experiencing.
