Preschool at Home: Week 3

For the last two weeks we learned about the letter "C." We also focused on the number 3, Noah's ark, and Hickory Dickory Dock. Here's a link to my Pinterest board and here's a glimpse at our own bulletin board.
 For our Bible story, we learned about Noah's ark. We made an ark out of craft sticks. 
(The finished ark is in the photo above.)
 We did lots of playing with our Noah's ark and we reenacted the story each day. Our Bible verse for the last two weeks was the first part of Deuteronomy 27:10. We repeated "Obey the Lord your God" each day.
 We did a few "C" themed activities. 
We colored a chicken.
 We played with car stickers.
We made a car out of construction paper and a paper plate.
We also got to see some cows up close and personal at River Cottage Farm.
We even got to watch a couple cows being milked.
The nursery rhyme we focused on was Hickory Dickory Dock. 
We repeated it each day and made this craft one day.
For our writing time, we focused on Seth's name. One day I wrote Seth's name with a white crayon on a white piece of paper. If you take watercolors and paint all over the piece of paper, it is supposed to reveal the name hidden on the sheet of paper. This did not work. You could kind of see his name, but not really. Seth did like painting anyway.
I also introduced a writing journal to Seth (thanks Beth for the idea). Each day Seth writes or draws whatever he wants to. It will be a nice way to see how his writing/drawing develops over time. 
For math, we worked with patterns. 
Seth had to match up his blocks to a pattern that was drawn on a piece of paper.
We also worked on number recognition (especially 1, 2, and 3). 
He had to cover the numbers with the corresponding colored sticker.
Seth found the bowl of marbles one day in the closet 
and wanted to do his own activity. 
He practiced picking up marbles with tongs...
 and we did lots of counting as he would put marble after marble into an empty bottle.
 We also counted some cars that I hung on the fence outside.
This week we will focus on the letter "D," the number 4, the Tower of Babel, and Hey, Diddle Diddle along with lots of other stuff!
