We had a light week this week.  A lot was going on with Mackenzie’s schooling this week so we only got in a few days of tot school.

Raising Rock Stars

Unit 2 Deets

Verse: Exodus 20:15, The Ten Commandments

Letter: Tt

Color: Green

Number: 2

Shape: Square

Getting ready for T sheet.  I like to use tiny crayons to encourage proper pencil grip.  These game with our Grasshopper Preschool Prep Kit but we also have a huge box of them from Handwriting Without Tears.

Cutting her vocabulary cards.  Her cutting is getting better every week.

Other Activities

We were reading Head to Toe in one of our Sonlight books and Kayleigh did some donkey kicks like a donkey.  Can you believe that the book is a treasury?  Look at the size of those illustrations.  We just love this treasury with it’s full size illustrations.

We practiced counting with the stacking turtles activity from Homeschool Creations Pond Pack.

Playing on ABC Mouse.  There is a way to customize the lessons to your liking, so I could arrange them to match up with the letter we’re studying in Raising Rock Stars, but I just haven’t had time to figure that out.  I’m too busy having to redo Mackenzie’s curriculum.  Grrrr!

Our Starfall lessons are coordinating with RR though.

WE had pop beads and dress-up magnets in our star boxes.  The pop beads are always a hit with both girls.

We dressed a bear according to the seasons.  These came in FIARs  Fold and Learn Pockets.

Another day we discussed the shapes used to illustrate the book and Kayleigh decided to get out her shape sorter.

She also got to paraticipate in one of Mackenzie’s science activities.  They made edible cells.  Yum!!

She pretty much ate the “organelles” and left the “cytoplasm” on her plate. LOL

Her little buddy also came over and they had lots of fun. DSC_0092redo

Love Apologia (guessing that's what you are using for Science)! We made edible cells at the beginning of last year!

Looks like you had a fun week. I love her kicking her legs up to copy the book - really cute!

That is one of my favorite Eric Carle books. So many great ways to move in that book. My kids like to get moving to it too! :) For only doing a few days worth of work it still looks like a pretty full week!
