First week of Preschool! Yay! Like I mentioned in a previous post, this first 26 week plan is mostly play based. Tanner really loved it! The Preschool Journey eBook that I am loosely following does not go in alphabetical order, but the first week is the letter "A" (next week is "C").
Along with The Preschool Journey I am doing Quiet Boxes/All By Myself boxes (idea from 1+1+1=1). These were a HUGE hit! I will be writing a post about these boxes next. I gave Tanner a box each each day to play with independently while I was getting Wesley down for his naps. We would also get them out after Wesley went to bed and before Tanner went to bed, sort of a wind down activity.
Each week we will be working with our sandpaper letters. We will also make a craft-a picture of the letter out of construction paper.
|Who knew glue sticks changed the color of construction paper?!|
And some magnets.
I picked a few apples and put them into a bucket. I loosely talked to him about graphing.
He just had to taste each color. His favorite was the Gala.
I planned on making homeade applesauce at the end of the week, but since I had so many apples with a bite taken out, I decided it was a good idea to go ahead and make it earlier.
He did some apple stamping. He ended up making a birthday card for his daddy.
He did a few other random activities that all tied into the letter A.
He showed me his "A" while he was playing with his iPad. Proud momma moment. :)
