Letter A

This week we kind of sort of started school. With OT coming up, vacation and the Holiday weekend, we decided to start school a bit early, but not full schedule yet.

We began with the Letter A. Using LOW curriculum, we practiced cutting, coloring, saying aloud both the names of A, matching, sorting and fun crafts like these:

We will be going to the apple orchard this week to pick our own apples, but we will also be reading a lot about apples and making yummy apple desserts and applesauce with pork chops, our homemade applesauce, and probably just munch on some crisp apples to celebrate the oncoming of fall. So we made a little craft of a half-eaten apple! A is for APPLE!

One other day this week, we read, The Lady with the Alligator Purse, and made an alligator out of the Letter A! Turbo had a lot of fun with it! The glue was especially sticky!

We also have been working on our Raising Rockstars Memory verses.

This week: "Keep me as the apple of your eye. Psalm 17:8". Using Songs for Saplings and printables from 1+1+1=1 we worked on putting the memory verse together, sang songs and read from the Bible where it is found in Turbo's Preschool Bible.

Using geoboards, playdough, Bingo dobbers, and file folder centers, we worked on our numbers and recognizing number words, etc.

We love our new one room schoolhouse, and feel very blessed to have it. This year is going to be a great year, we just need to get somethings under our belt and nail down our schedule!
