Preschool Week in Review

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

I am so far behind in my preschool posts that I see the calendar in my pictures with September 16th on it!  But we are going to take a little break from preschool for now.  Almost every day Hunter says that school is boring and he wants to just play.  So, we are going to take a few weeks off from preschool and see if he changes his mind.  Last year he loved doing school, but this year he wants to play with his trains all day.  So, that is fine and I will wait until he wants to do school again.

But, for now- here are a few of things we did.

Our letter was A.

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

We read this book and listened to the CD that goes with it.  The CD is really cute!

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

 Hunter colored a letter A paper.

 We are going to make an alphabet book full of crafts, with one for each letter.  For A, we made A is for Apple.

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

 We added the letter A to our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree.  Then Hunter swatted the letter A.

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

 Hunter has a little book that is the same as the big book of The Adventures of Abby Alligator.  He colored his copy of the book.

Bible:

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

 Our Bible story was about Adam and Eve, so I used the printables I found here.  I lamintated them and put magnets on the back so we can use them on our white board.

Math and Manipulatives:

 We did math using Farmland math and Hunter really enjoys it!

Hopefully our preschool posts will be back soon.  For now, be sure to stop back to see the crafts we are planning to do and see what Hailey is busy doing in 3rd grade.

Third Grade Weeks in Review

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

It has been a while since I posted about what Hailey has been doing in school.  I am having a hard time figuring out how to fit everything in that I want to do these days.  Having a newborn in the house sure does make it harder to get everything done.  She is a super good baby, there is just so much more to do.  Anyway, here is a quick review of what we have been up to over the last several weeks.

Language Arts:

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Hailey has been learning how to diagram sentences in language arts.  Actually, I have been learning it too because I never learned in school how to do it.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Working on her cursive handwriting.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Hailey finished reading Capyboppy and her assignment when she finished the book was to create what a DVD cover for a movie of Capyboppy would look like.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

We also finished reading Mrs. Pigglewiggle.  When she finished that book she had to write a friendly letter telling someone about the book.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

She drew a picture of her favorite part of the book- which was the “fighter-quarrelers cure” where Mrs. Pigglewiggle told the parents to argue and act like their kids were acting to cure all the fighting the kids were doing.  We really loved reading Mrs. Pigglewiggle, it is definitely a favorite!

Science:

We are still having a lot of fun with our science curriculum.  We are using Science in the Beginning and it is working well for us.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Hailey was doing an experiment where she had to put a white piece of a plastic garbage bag and a black piece of a plastic garbage bag in the sunlight for 5 minutes and then check to see what happened.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Hailey has also been busy working in her science journal.

History:

We are using Veritas Press and Story of the World for history and both are working great for us.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

After Hailey learned about the Tower of Babel, she did a craft to create her own using the idea I found here.

We have moved on to learning about Egypt and there are so many fun activities to do with Egypt that it is very easy to get carried away!

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Hailey made a model of the Nile.  In the middle is the Nile and on the sides we put some grass seed.  Hailey also added some large rocks to represent mountains.  Each week will flood our Nile to represent how it flooded every year.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Then Hailey also used some clay and wrote her name using Cuneiform.

Other:

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

We took a field trip to learn how donuts and apple cider are made.  Hailey and Hunter enjoyed trying a delicious donut and some yummy cider!

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

We saw donuts being made.

We watched how cider is made.

Preschool Week in Review

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

We had a fun filled week in preschool… although this post is a few weeks old because I am having a hard time fitting blogging into everything else that I have going on right now.  Anyway, here are some of the things Hunter did in preschool:

We are using Little Hands to Heaven from Heart of Dakota and our letter for the week was A.

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

Hunter looking at the A page in Big Thoughts for Little People.

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

Gluing some Apple Jacks onto the letter A.

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

Woody took a little walk on the letter A that I put on the floor.

Our Bible Story was Adam and Eve:

We talked about how God made everything.  We went into a dark room and I said “Let there be light” and then turned the light on.

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

We drew some pictures using white crayon.

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

Then Hunter painted over the white crayon with water colors.

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

His picture showed how things appeared from nothing.

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

We also talked about the serpent and how he deceived Eve.  Hunter ran back and forth jumping over the snake.

Math:

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

Practicing counting

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

We are making a counting book and for our first page we added 1 tree.

Our Crafts N Things Preschool

I drew three circles on a page and then Hunter colored in the circles with the matching color.  Then he sorted some pegs onto the correct circles.

Manipulatives:

Third Grade- Week in Review

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Here is a look at some of the things Hailey has been learning:

 Bible:

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Hailey loves Grapevine for Bible and says it is one of her favorite subjects.  She drew a picture of her favorite part of the lesson from the week on this page.

Language Arts:

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

 Hailey is reading Cappyboppy, which we are both enjoying.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

She is also working on learning cursive, which she is not enjoying.  I think this is the worst part of our day- she hates it :-(

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

We did some dictionary review.

Science:

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

We are both loving our science curriculum!  There is always a short and easy experiment and we both really liked the one from this day.  We positioned a DVD behind a lit candle and we could see the rainbow.  It was so neat and really taught the lesson of the day (about how white light is made up of all of the colors)!

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Here is one of the pages in Hailey’s science journal as she learns about how light works and how we see colors.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

We also had a lesson about how when you look at something like a red flower why you only see the color red, so Hailey drew a picture in her journal about that too.  She drew all of the colors of the rainbow coming out of a light source and then the red light being reflected off to the person’s eye.  The rest of the colors are absorbed, so we don’t see them.

Geography:

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

Hailey learned about Connecticut and used her Little Passports magazine to do some activities.

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

She also used her USA Sticker book to learn more about Connecticut.

Just for fun:

Our Crafts N Things Third Grade

One day Elsa and Snow White came to school :-)
