Preschool at Home: Week 5

Last week we focused on the letter "E," the number 5, the story of Abraham, and the poem "An Elephant Walks Like This and That." 
There were a few things we didn't get to on my Week 5 Pinterest board, but here's a look at what we did do.
We decorated a letter e with eyeballs.
We read My "e" Book.
Seth worked on this alphabet puzzle throughout the week.
We worked on some pre-writing skills. 
I printed out these writing cards and we tried several of them on a piece of paper.
We practiced tracing our letter E.
We worked on scooping pom poms with a measuring spoon. 
We focused on counting out 5 pom poms over and over.
Seth scooped and scooped for probably fifteen minutes.
We counted eyeballs in an egg carton.
We read about Abraham and Sarah from our children's Bibles, but didn't manage to fit in any crafts.
Our focus verse was "Every good and perfect gift is from above." James 1:17. We did sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star every day because we read about Abraham's descendants being as numerous as the stars.
We also learned the poem "An Elephant Walks Like This and That." 
We colored an elephant, made up motions for our poem, and repeated it every day.

This week we are moving on to the letter F, the number 6, fish related Bible stories (we might read several and do different crafts), and learning the poem "Firefly."
