ivey league preschool: S is for superheroes!

We've been going strong with preschool for the past month, though you wouldn't know it by looking at this blog.  Currently catching up on posts!

For S week, Caleb had his heart on doing Spiderman-themed activities.  Those were harder to find due to copyright issues.  I found what I could and then supplemented with generic superhero activities as well.

First we did our do-a-dot, play-doh mat, and pattern blocks activity for the letter S:

I also found a fun "I Spy an S" worksheet online.  Caleb stamped everything that began with the letter S!

We counted superheroes and practiced writing our numbers:

And we also did a magazine scavenger hunt and collage for the letter S.

We worked in the story of Samson as well, since while he wasn't a superhero, God gave him great strength and that made him do some pretty extraordinary things.  I read Caleb the story out of his Bible, then we did a fun worksheet where we decoded a message by figuring out beginning sounds:

Though according to Scripture, Delilah didn't cut Samson's hair herself; she called in a man to do her dirty work.  Oh well.  :o)  Caleb also glued yarn onto a face to signify Samson's hair.

Finally, we tried crayon-resist painting.  I drew a spiderweb on a piece of white paper using a white crayon, then Caleb would paint over it.  We also tried a couple more with shape designs.  We didn't have watercolor paints at the time, so we tried it with a water and food coloring combo with mixed results.

We didn't make it to the library this week due to water heater issues (can't beat waking up to a flooded garage!), but overall it was fun!
