This week we have moved on to the letter B. We did a lot of B activities using Raising Rock Stars, All About Reading pre-1, and various activities from Tot School Printables, Animal ABCs, COAH’s Letter of the Week.
Raising Rock StarsOur verse this week was Matthew 5:9, Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be sons of God. She did finally memorize it but it took some doing. For whatever reason, she did NOT like the world peacemakers. I have no clue what that was about. LOL Here’s a peek at some of our other activities.
Kayleigh was so pleased with the length of the verse this week that she made me hang it up on the wall so she could admire it without having to hold it up.
Our song this week was The B-I-B-L-E and Kayleigh insisted on dancing with one of her bibles everyday. lol
All About Reading
This week we played some rhyming games with Zecora, formerly known as Ziggy. I was pleased with how well she did with this. We hadn’t really worked on rhyming before so I guess all the Dr. Suess reading has paid off.
SonlightAAR recommends 20 minutes of reading aloud each day and that is a perfect fit with our love of Sonlight. Our readings for this week came from Hans Christian Anderson’s Fairy Tales, 20th Century Children’s Book Treasury, Richard Scary’s What do People do All Day, and the Family Time Bible. Naturally, Kayleigh is never satisfied with what is scheduled for reading. We scoff at 20 minutes. lol
Other Fun StuffKayleigh happened to be sitting near me one day while I was doing some blog reading. I happened to be over at 1+1+1=1 and she noticed that Ladybug was doing “Zecora School” like her. Then she noticed that Ladybug was doing a cool alligator A. And where was her alligator A? So now we’ve added in some of Carisa’s Animal ABCs. Very cute! And Kayleigh also enjoyed a lot of the extra printables too.
Backtracking a bit and doing the alligator craft.
We worked on our Brainy Baby puzzles and a jigsaw that she got for Christmas. The jigsaw pieces were a bit tight so she hammered them in.
She’s working on writing her name and she had a BLAST with the color page from ABC Animals. Instead of coloring all of the bears she decided to give them makeovers using the correct colors. She spent days on that.
Traced some shapes.
Played My Little Pony.
We played a fun butterfly counting game from COAH.
Kumon dot-to-dots and sewing. She requested the lacing so I had to print one out real quick.
And we got back into our Artistic Pursuit lessons. This week she had to draw one of her favorite things. She chose her new Belle baby doll. Her drawings crack me up. And she got as much marker on her nose as on her paper. Smelly markers are so tempting. lol
And that was our week. We actually accomplished everything that I set out to do. A miracle.
