Hats Off to H!
It was another week of balancing schedule changes. Between a home school museum program for Ava, foster care obligations, and church school we had a full week.We had two full mornings of preschool and finished up the remainder of our work on Saturday. This will be my last post for a couple of weeks. This coming week we will focus on reviewing letters A-H and numbers 1-10 using the activities I have created over the last 8 weeks. We will also learn about the life cycle of a pumpkin and do some pumpkin carving. Then, we will spend one week enjoying a visit from Mimi and Papa! Ava and Dominic can't wait! (And I can't either!)
Here is a look at our fun with letter H!
Tuesday: H is for Hats!
Book: Caps for Sale By: Esphyr Slobodkina (I replaced the word cap with hat while reading it. We talked about how a cap is another word for a hat.)
Song: Hats are Blowing
|Beginning our week with our sound box is a must!The kids can't wait to reach in and see what they will find.Of course, this week the box was filled with objects that start with H.|
|We had fun trying on the different hats! I had the kids each pick a hat they wanted to wear while we sang our hat song.|
|We sang Hats are Blowing using hat puppets.|
|During our art time, we made heart hats out of paper plates.|
|We used 2 inch foam insulation. You can purchase it at any hardware store. My father in law happen to have some scraps left over from a project he has been working on! I can see us taking this activity out over and over again.|
|Lots of spooky cookies were made!|
Wednesday: H is for Halloween!
Book: The Spooky Smells of Halloween By: Mary Man Kong
Songs: I brought back out the ghost songs and puppets from last week!
Baby Ghost and I Saw a Ghost
|Ava started her day off with the alphabet train puzzle.|
|Our calendar pattern is going strong!|
|We brought back our ghost songs in honor of Halloween.|
|During our art time, we painted pumpkins. Dominic was all about this! He worked on this for a long time and didn't even try to eat the paint!|
|It is fun to see how having something different to paint on makes painting even more exciting! We added glitter to the pumpkins when they were finished painting. They love to use the glitter!|
|More spooky cookies were made today!|
|During math time, Ava also sorted three types of candy corn.|
|Using the sorted candy, we worked on creating patterns in our pumpkin tray. She may have also had found the pattern of sort one, eat one, sort one, eat one...though I am not sure she would ever admit it!|
|Dominic's finished masterpiece!|
|Ava's work of art!|
|Practicing writing the letter H. Ava was all about practicing this letter because one of her best friends name's starts with the letter H!|
|She worked on the letter H for her alphabet book|
