Archive for the ‘Little Hands to Heaven’ Category
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.
Hunter looking at the A page in Big Thoughts for Little People.
Gluing some Apple Jacks onto the letter A.
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.
We drew some pictures using white crayon.
Then Hunter painted over the white crayon with water colors.
His picture showed how things appeared from nothing.
We also talked about the serpent and how he deceived Eve. Hunter ran back and forth jumping over the snake.
We are making a counting book and for our first page we added 1 tree.
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.

Hunter loves to do school- and when Hailey is doing her schoolwork, he is looking for something to do too. So, I am preparing to start preschool this fall with Hunter. I need to be organized and have things planned out as much as possible since this will be a very busy fall for us! Here are the plans I have so far for Hunter for preschool:
I am going to use Little Hands to Heaven with Hunter which includes A Child’s First Bible, Big Thoughts for Little People, and some music. Each unit focuses on a new letter. Since Hunter is still young I am planing to stretch LHTH out for 2 years. We will do a new unit every other week. The off weeks we will focus on the same letter we learned the week before using LHTH. Those weeks we will use Alpha Tales, Montessori Letter Work and Number Work, Farmland Math as well as some printables from Confessions of a Homeschooler.
In addition we have lots of manipulatives that Hunter will enjoy using. This is just a small portion of what I have for him to use. I will rotate these every week to keep him interested.
This is the plan for now… of course that can and probably will change. We’ll have a newborn in the house and I’m sure my plans will need to be relaxed and flexible. Of course, these plans will also depend on Hunter’s interest. If he isn’t ready for something or isn’t enjoying something I will put it away until he’s older. But for now, this is the plan.
