ivey league preschool: p is for pirate!

Our P week happened before Christmas and after that we took a couple of weeks off for the holidays.  We decided to do mostly pirate stuff and Caleb really enjoyed it!  He helped me find pirate books during our trip to the public library that week as well.

First, we did our do-a-dot, pattern block template, and playdoh mat for the letter P:

We also completed a few pages from a pirate-themed preschool pack.  We worked on beginning letter sounds and tracing words, as well as matching the word to the corresponding object (Caleb needed a little help with this one, which is what I expected.  He'd tell me what letter he thought each object started with, and I'd help him scan the list to find the word).

This pirate pack also had a fun activity where you group word families together...they made it look like grouping coins together to put in treasure chests!

We also made a pirate hat out of a big piece of paper.  Normally you use newspaper, but this time we used a big sheet from his daddy's desk calendar at work (once he finishes a month, he tears it off and brings it home for Caleb to color!).  Caleb was less enthused with wearing it but he indulged me long enough for a picture (and go figure, he wore it around the house the next day!).

Finally, we did our magazine scavenger hunt and collage for the letter P...we found a lot of stuff!

We listened to Christmas music while we worked this week.  :)
