This week in Preschool we worked on the letter S. It was another fun week and it touches my heart that the kiddos really want to do school!!

  • We read books from the library about the sun
  • Practiced making S's in sand
  • Minnie made an S with her feet
  • Time outdoors enjoying the Sun
  • Talked about the importance of the sun (seasons, gardens, vitamin D) 
  • Sensory Experience - blindfold kids & have them experience life without the sun
  • Painted Sun Pictures
  • Talked about how Jesus is the light of the world (John 8:12)
  • Made Raisins (took over a week, but pretty cool!)
  • Read Moonbear's Shadowby Frank Asch & talked about shadows. We drew with chalk on our driveway & saw how our shadows changed throughout the day. 
  • Made Sundial 

S is for Star Wars
Goofy has never seen Star Wars, but he met the characters at Disney in May; ever since then he has talked about Star Wars. So when I saw Jolanthe had put together a Star Wars Preschool Pack I knew it would be a hit. Once again Homeschool Creations' Jolanthe has made a very impressive packet filled with lots of well done goodies: story with key words, what letter comes next, puppets, counting spaceships, pattering characters, prewritting skills, read/build/write, Letter trace pages (Yoda & Darth Vadar), measuring light sabers, building a book by gluing space ships next to/above/under, and more! Goofy did a great job reading the star wars book I found on Amazon & e had a great time doing all the seat work too. Minnie even traced on the line this week - I was shocked & thrilled!

Hope you have a "S" for sunny weekend,
