K4- RRSK: Letter P and Jake and the Never Land Pirates

Friday, May 17, 2013

Last week, we took a break from Raising Rock Stars.  But, we are now back on track and now our letters for both RRSK and K4 correspond with each other...so much easier for planning themes!

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.

Letter: P
Bible Verse: Praise the Lord!  For it is good to sing praises to our God.
Psalm 147:1

Another great handwriting week!!

 Jake and the Neverland Pirates Printables

We used printables from 1+1+1=1.

Abby has been asking for a Jake and the Never Land Pirates themed week, so that we did.

She worked on fractions and we pretended they were pizza.  She thinks it's alot of fun, except when her slice becomes a 1/3 or 1/4.  :-)  We actually did a similar activity with RRSK several weeks ago and she still remembered!


Abby has been working on counting from 1 to 100.  She does great at recognizing the numbers and counting by 10's, just has a hard time remembering what comes next when she gets to numbers like 49, 59, 69 & 79.  We've been working HARD at it and this week it clicked!  She counted from 1 to 100 all by herself, perfectly!  She was so proud!!

Within the Jake printables, was this counting by 5's practice sheet.  We gave it a try and she did really well with it.  We will be working on this more in her K4 materials in a week or two.


Money isn't a topic we've dived into, just yet.  But, I thought we would do a brief overview since she learned how to count by 5's and 10's.

She thought it was fun to apply her new knowledge of counting by 5's on the nickels.


We also did some rhyming practice.  After cutting all the words, she had to sort the rhyming words into categories like (Jake, Hook and Tic Tock) and paste.


This was a new activity that we've never done before, filling in the missing word.  She did really well with this and wanted to do more.


We also worked on telling time, using the Peter Pan Preschool Pack from Homeschool Creations.  She read the time to me, then matched the digital time to the analog clocks.  We are only working on time by the hour and 1/2 hour.  When she is more comfortable counting by 5's, it will be easier for her to understand various other times.


She worked on more cutting, sorting and pasting.


 And, she enjoyed a trip to the ballet to see Cinderella!  She had such a good time AND she got to hug Cinderella at the tea party.



Summer has been a very busy girl.  She is balancing and standing alone for short periods and will now walk 7-10 steps by herself without tumbling.  It's a little bittersweet.

She's also been showing interest in putting objects in a container and dumping them out.  And while she is easily distracted, I tried to give her a few items to play with.



Just a sidenote: A little over a week ago, we received a cup of caterpillars from Insect Lore.  Our caterpillars just recently began their metamorphosis and should be emerging early next week, so be sure to check back!  Here's a sneak peek of our Butterfly Garden from last year.
