K4- RRSK: Ee, YCR: Unit 10 and Valentine's Day Theme

Saturday, February 09, 2013

Abby is 4 years old.

You can learn more about the K4 Curriculum here, which we are currently using as our base.
We reviewed previous sight words making playdough letters, tracing and practice writing.  Abby has been struggling with spacing issues between words and my mom gave me the idea of a popsicle stick spacer.  I made one using her favorite color popsicle stick and a few foam heart stickers--simple and fun!

 She worked on letter recognition, beginning sounds and continues to practice writing.

 More playdough fun with shapes...

We started putting words together to make sentences.  She loved making them silly!

We played many games of Rush Hour Jr. and absolutely love it!

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
Even a child is known by his deeds. Proverbs 20:11
Tracing her verse...

Math practice--counting backwards and number writing...

Putting her cut verse in order...

Unit: 10
where, did, no, are

Unscrambling her sight word puzzles...

We have also added Road Trip USA into our year. My main goal with this program is to introduce Abby to the United States in a fun and exciting way and give her the opportunity to learn some basic history and facts.
We studied the Statue of Liberty this week and discovered many interesting facts along the way. 
We decorated her crown (paper plate) and made a torch from a painted paper towel holder and orange tissue paper.  She insisted on pretending she had a tablet in her other hand just like the Statue.

You can check out my RoadTrip USA board on Pinterest for more ideas.

 We revisited some of our activites from the Valentine's Day Preschool Pack from Over the Big Moon

I made this sensory bin for Abby.  It's filled with heart shaped stickers and foam stickers, heart gemstones, red heart shaped foam blocks, pom poms and feathers, along with some Valentine buckets and bowls.

We even made a small bin for Summer to play with since she wanted to play.

We did several crafts this week--I cut a coffee filter in the shape of a heart and let Abby decorate with markers.  Then, she sprayed it with water and had a beautiful decoration for her room.

We also used paper rolls for this cute craft.

As for Summer, she started crawling this week.  She's still new at it obviously, but she gets herself across the room and is continuously pulling up on anything she can! 

6 months old.
Both girls love playing togther and adore each other so much!
