This week has been brought to you by the letter N!
First we did a couple of worksheets where Caleb had to find uppercase and lowercase N's, and then color them specific colors.
He also completed one with a hidden picture inside. I've been trying to find worksheets that involve more coloring since it forces Caleb to pay attention to what he's doing and not just scribble everywhere. Still a work in progress but we're getting there!
He did very well on a tracing worksheet too!
We also did our play-doh mat, do-a-dot, and pattern block worksheets for this week:
We also did our magazine scavenger hunt and collage for the letter N:
Next we did a "nest" unit based on the book Are You My Mother? While we read the book, I would point out simple sight words in the text and ask Caleb if he knew what they were. He's actually getting pretty good at recognizing words like dog, cat, cow, up, etc.
After we were done reading, we completed a nest-themed preschool pack. It involved tracing and writing practice, counting eggs in a basket, completing patterns, and finding what's different.
We also read the story of Noah and the flood in Caleb's storybook Bible. When we were done, Caleb colored in a rainbow and we talked about God's promises.
We also did a few Noah-themed preschool worksheets. These involved sorting lowercase and uppercase N's, prepositions, completing the pattern, finding the letter sound for a word, counting items, and tracing. For the last one, I read Caleb the questions. He would figure out the answer, and then I wrote it in using dashed lines so he could trace over them later.
All this Noah talk inspired Caleb to get out his Little People Ark and play around a bit!
Our classical music for this week was another collection of 25 masterpieces, such as The William Tell Overture, part of Dvorak's New World Symphony, and some pretty waltzes.
