We have been super busy lately, but have still made time for some fun learning!!!!
We have been working on a letter for like a week or so at a time. Lylah knows most of her uppercase letters so this is more for exposure to the sounds of these letters. Lately we've been working on "C" for carrot, caterpillar, and candy. We have also done "B" is for bear, baby, bumblebee, butterfly, bubbles, and ball.
We have also been doing lots of fine motor/math skills. Lylah is doing great with color sorting!! We try to practice counting every chance we get. She always leaves out the number 4 :)
We focused on The Very Hungry Caterpillar/Butterflies too. We used our Very Hungry Caterpillar sensory bin, a puppet type retelling game and also a retelling felt board story. We also read a super sweet book about Monarch butterfly migration called "Gotta Go, Gotta Go". I'm not sure on the author :(. Anyway then we watched a video about their migration on You Tube. Amazing!!!!
Finally I've been sort of all over the place with our Bible time, but a friend shared a great free online curriculum that I love for Bible time. We went going back to creation this week (but I'll blog about that next time). With part one of September we talked some about Noah and played with out little people set. We also did the "B" verse "Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved" Acts 16:31. Signing verses continues to be a great way to teach Lylah (and myself) how to memorize them!!!
For those of you wondering these activities are sprinkled throughout our morning in between regular play. We try to do an activity in math, phonics, theme, and Bible three times a week. Sometimes the activity is super simple like reading a story and singing a song or playing a game on the computer. If Lylah is really wanting to play "Hi Ho Cherry-O" then that us our math activity for that day. Sometimes we don't get to all of the activities. It is very laid back for us right now. We'll add in more rules and structure when she is 4 :). What I'm trying to say is that a majority of our day looks like this:
