Letter H

I've hesitated on posting about school because I can't think of a "neat" way to share it.  So for now, it will basically be a list of what we did that week.  
Sorry.  I'll work on it, I promise.

We've started doing preschool one day a week with a friend.  It has immensely helped with motivation and social interaction for Bubby (he tends to be very quiet around other people).  It's so much more fun playing games and doing crafts with more than one kid.  Plus, my friend has a baby too, so we take turns teaching and watching the babies.

We jumped in with them at the letter H.
Here, they're learning about animal homes and habitats.  We talked about how God made the animals and gave them the instincts to know how to build their homes.
We also watched a short video about animal's homes.

We started a notebook full of letters to trace and color.

Then they look through magazines to find pictures of things that start with that letter and glue them in their folder.

Craft: 
build a horse
glued cheerios on a heart
traced hands
colored Cat and the Hat picture

Games
hopped through hula hoops
Hungry Hungry Hippos
Hopscotch
Build a house with block (match colored blocks)

Food:  
heart apples and Ho Ho's (healthy/unhealthy food)
ham and cheese rolls (hot/cold food)


Music: 
 Happy and you know it
Head, shoulders, knees and toes
Heaven is a wonderful place!
played the harmonica

Books: 
Hop on Pop
Robert the Rose Horse
Cat and the Hat

Bible Stories: 
1 Samuel 16...David's good heart
1 Kings 1...Solomon's wise heart
Matthew 13...parable of seeds falling in good soil which is like God's love growing in our hearts
Revelation 1...heaven

Memory Verse:
Exodus 20:12
Honor your father and your mother


I tried to do a day around the Cat and the Hat.  My plan was to read the book, color a Cat and the Hat picture, count a pile of hats and stack them on our head to see how many we could balance and end with making our own hat.  However, Bubby seems to have a strange fear of hats recently and would not participate.  He's been grouchy lately...and he's 3.
