Letter of the week - B

The letter of the week was B. Here are some of the highlights from our week:

Monday we did general letter B things. Then Tuesday - Thursday we did theme days ( Bear, Ball, Bumblebee) with a wrap up on Friday.

(Super cute book!!)

We also read Bee & Me

One of our crafts was to make a bumble bee.... here is it almost finished. Just needs the antenna!

I cut B's and things that start with B out of magazines and had her glue them onto a B template. I put the glue around the B and she stuck the item on. She had fun talking about what was in the picture and saying the words like "B .. B... Banana."

Ducky learned 3 new ASL words this week.

Her favorite part of the whole week was dot painting. She LOVES her dot painting. I guess next week we will have to do a lot more of it.

Letter of the week - A

Our first week of Tot School was a complete success. We started with the letter A! Ducky learned all week about the different words that start with the letter A.

Here are some highlights from our week:

On day one she learned A is for Apple.
She colored pictures of apples
She learned the ASL sign for Apple
Her snack was apple slices with peanut-butter
We read the book 10 Apples Up On Top

Day two she learned that A is for airplane

Ducky practiced counting her airplanes and working on her colors as well.
She had a blast zooming around the house with her arms out pretending to be an airplane!
She learned the ASL sign for airplane
Her coloring pages were all themed around airplanes.

Ducky also leaned this week that A is for Alligator

She made an alligator out of the letter A
She learned the ASL sign for Alligator
She colored an alligator

We also read Alligator Baby

I am extremely proud of my little ducky.
What an "A"mazing start of our homeschool journey.
Now onto letter B...

Day 1

Everyone has to start somewhere so today we started our 28 month old daughter "Ducky" in Tot School. This is a new and unfamiliar journey that we are taking but we are letting God direct our paths.

For the next 26 weeks we will be doing a letter of the week theme, starting with A and ending with Z. We'll read books, sing songs, make crafts and color pictures all pertaining to the letter of the week. Wish me luck...
