V is for Volcano


We thought it would be fun to talk about Volcanos to go along with our letter of the week.  So we read some books and looked at pictures and then made our own.

We mixed:
3 cups of flour
1 cup of salt
2 tbsp of cooking oil

We formed our volcano around an empty yogurt container.

Hailey decided to paint her volcano brown.

Once everything was dry we made our volcano erupt.  We mixed:
2 spoonfuls of baking soda
1 spoonful of dish soap
red and yellow food coloring
and when we were ready to set it off- we added the vinegar

(Rich thought it would be fun to mix all of those things together inside a water bottle and then hold his finger over the top while the pressure built up.  Let’s just say it erupted like what an actual volcano probably does and the kitchen was a mess!)

We also started doing the Raising Rock Stars Preschool letter of the week activities that I found over at 1+1+1=1.

Hailey coloring her verse for the week.  The letter V was kind of a hard letter to start with- the verse was hard for her to remember.

Then she colored and cut her One Way sign.

And read the One Way book.

Letter of the Week- Letter V


Our letter this week is the letter V.  Here are some of the things we did to learn our letter.  I only post the things I am able to take pictures of, but we do a lot more.

First we made a V is for vase.  Hailey started out by coloring some coffee filters.

Then she sprayed the coffee filters with a light mist of water.  After the coffee filters dried I cut out some flowers.

V is for Vase.

Then Hailey cut out various vegetables that we found in the the fliers from our newspaper.

This “V is for vegetables” page will go in our alphabet book.

I got this letter V sheet here and had Hailey stamp all of the letter Vs with her do-a-dot markers.

Musings of Me has a whole Valentine’s Day unit with tons of fun printables.  That’s where this is from.

This is also from Musings of Me- Hailey had to sort the letters based on whether it was a V or some other letter.

I’ll be posting all of our Valentine’s Day projects this week so be sure to check back!
