Abby is 4 years old and Summer is 1 month old.
We are officially starting our school year in a few days. As of right now, we are halfway through preschool and will be wrapping up our current program in late November. While I'm not completely sure what our next step is, I do have a few ideas and we will begin that in early January.
Sight Word: Your
Bible Verse: Keep your tongue from evil.
While I was unable to capture all the activities, I did catch Abby working on her opposite puzzle.
Abby loves playing on the dry erase board and loves to read her list of words and erase as she goes. Next week, we will be moving on to unit six.
She enjoys watching Barefoot Contessa almost as much as Abby and I.
Obviously, she was not a happy camper...
Abby began singing to cheer her up and while it stopped the crying..her look is priceless..
Fall 2012 Plans
- Continuing and finishing the Raising Rock Stars Preschool program which includes a weekly color, number, letter and Bible Verse along with tracing introduction, cutting practice, etc.
- You Can Read which we will continue working through at her pace.
- Using various themed preschool packs and printables
- Learning games, puzzles and toys
Some Additions (While I may include only a few ideas, additional activities may be added as the weeks go on.)
- A Daily Calendar Notebook which will include typical calendar activities while introducing a few activities such as tracing, graphing, review and more.
- Kumon inspired resources
- Reading Time which will be a 15 minute quiet time for her to choose several books to "read" to herself
- Working more on Abby's weaknesses so she is better prepared for her next step which mainly includes coloring and rhyming
My Challenges (While there are many, these are all I can list for now.)
- Include more literary inspiration and 1:1 reading time
- Offer a variety of sensory inspired activities
- Keeping with a routine
As I look back at Abby from just one year ago, I can't help but be proud of all she has learned and accomplished as a preschooler, but also how much she has grown and retained. She has changed in so many ways and I look forward to watching and helping her grow in the coming months.
