K4: Numbers, Shapes and Colors Review, RRSK: Bb and YCR: Unit 7

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Abby is currently 4 years old and Summer is 5.5 months old.

This week was focused on numbers 1-20, shapes and color review.

You can learn more about the K4 Curriculum here, which we are currently using as our base. 
  Oh..the many ways you can count!

She practiced counting forwards, backwards, skip counting and locating the even/odd numbers.

She wanted to paint her numbers one day and use dot paint the next.  I wonder what her favorite color is?!

 We played with pattern blocks.

And, reviewed shapes and colors...

I've been wanting to try Speekee for awhile now.  It's an online show for children that teaches Spanish and I've read so many good reviews about it.  Anyhow, I finally signed up for the free two week trial and Abby has enjoyed it every day.  She even asks to watch it!  I used the link from 1+1+1=1 which also includes a nice subscription discount.

 She completed the second lesson from Draw Write Now: Book One.  Like last week, she asked for me to trace over her pencil drawing with black crayon so it would be easier to color, but she did the rest and to my amazement really enjoys the activity!

And, she built words using the Montessori Words for Kids Lite app.

We are essentially picking up where Raising Rock Stars Preschool left off with Raising Rock Stars Kindergarten. We are reviewing the Bible verses she learned before, but using more challenging activities.

Bible Verse:
Matthew 5:9
Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called sons of God.
Pattern practice...

Cutting and pasting her verse in order...

 Unit: 7
find, play, to, run
She was a little disappointed to be on the same sight words this week.  There were a few times I got the whole, "Ugh..these words again..I want new ones."  Needless to say..next week we are moving onto Unit: 8.
Word find by color...
Abby's toy this week was her new science kit.  We did a few experiments, but mainly she poured and transferred water.  To say she enjoyed it would be an understatement.  :-)
We made a volcano..then another and another and yet, another.

Abby's also been having a blast in gymnastics again!


 Meanwhile, Summer spent her time studying and exploring... 

Banging the ball on the floor...

And, laughing at Abby...
