Kayleigh is 41 months oldRaising Rockstars/ Sonlight p 3/4 schedule for a couple of days.
Our days will be starting with our newly redone morning board. We tried doing calendar last year but she wasn’t ready; it went much better this time.
The top of our board is your standard calendar activities: days of the week, date, seasons, weather, songs, etc. The bottom of the board is our Raising Rockstars components: Bible verse, verse application, song, and key cards. You can read more about that on 1+1+1=1.
We don’t have any wall space for hanging this stuff due to the insane about of bookshelves in our school room, oh the trials of being a Sonlighter lol, so I made it out of heavy foam board. It folds up and slides neatly behind a shelf when not in use. Love it!
Here’s the little miss counting the numbers with her pointer. She wouldn’t have anything to do with that last year so progress has been made.
Using her Raising Rockstar prop (RR from now on) to sing our song.
Raising Rockstar Activities
Verse: Matthew 5:16
Sight Word: See
Here she is working on her RR binder which will hold all of her verses, projects, and key cards. And it will be a nice little keep sake when we’re finished.
Coloring her Bible verse for this unit.
Cutting out her vocab cards. She did a really good job staying on the lines for the most part.
“Reading” her cards that we put in her binder. She LOVED this!
Pre-writing using “Get Ready for L". She did surprisingly well with this. She normally scribbles and misses the lines entirely. I guess she wasn’t kidding when she said she wanted to write like sissy. LOL
I didn’t get any pictures of it, but she also really liked “reading” the mini-book that goes along with the unit. The purpose of that is mainly for working with the sight word, but since we’re not really doing sight words, we read it just for fun. It was very repetitive and with the picture clues, she was easily able to figure out what to “read.” She felt like a “big gurl baby.”
She is very in love with being a baby yet wants to do big girl stuff and “big gurl baby” is apparently her way of having the best of both worlds. LOL
In no particular order…
Ll Maze. Find and stamp all the big and little Ls. Ideally, you’d do it in order, to make a maze, but she’s not ready for that so she just stamped them as she saw them.
This is something that I made and will make available to you once I have them all finished. I think I’m onV so soon. =o)
Playing on ABC Mouse. She also did the L unit on Starfall but I didn’t get any pictures of that.
An ABC puzzle. This was the first time she’s worked on a puzzle of this size and she was LOVING it! She did it over and over and over. She was so proud that she could do it. With a little help of course.
I printed this ladybug number book from Making Learning Fun. We did it a little differently. We didn’t attempt to write the number words, we just stamped the correct number of spots on the ladybug.
Dot painting L is for Ladybug. This was from COAH. For the first time in the history of the world, she only painted on the dots. Normally it’s all over. And I had told her she could paint it however she wanted. LOL
She worked in her Kumon Let’s Color and Easy Maze books
Ladybug color match and big/little L sort, both from COAH.
Her star boxes, which are available after her guided activities are completed, contained Magneatos, Lacing Bears, and instruments.
She loved all of her Sonlight read alouds. So much that we read extra.
This first book is part of RR and is where the Bible verses come from. It didn’t really hold Kayleigh’s attention, as it doesn’t have a lot pictures. So I’m not sure if this will work for us yet. We’ll see.

She likes this Bible okay
but she really loves the Family Time Bible so I think we’re going to switch. In fact, she went and got it off the shelf after being unhappy that 101 didn’t have a picture of the snake in the Garden of Eden. LOL
The Family Time Bible came with core pre-k but it’s an easier version than 101 favorites. Sadly, the Family Time Bible is out of print. Mackenzie LOVED this Bible for years and it shows the wear.
This treasury is one of the best I’ve seen as it has full size pictures. Woot!! This week we read Baby Says, Pete’s a Pizza, Harold’s Purple Crayon, and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

All-in-all, our trial run went well. I saw some things that I might tweak and I have a possible review item coming up that might alter my plan a bit more. Especially if we like it.
