The Week Ahead: Letter Ss and the Solar System

on June 18, 2012

For the first time in several weeks, I actually had time to sit down and plan activities for the week BEFORE Monday morning rolled around. We have a full week ahead of us even before adding any of these activities to the agenda, and as always, everything on this list is subject to Little Bear’s interest/approval. (I don’t believe in forcing learning on anyone, especially not a 3-year-old!) That said, here’s what I’d like to see us accomplish over the next week … or two:

The Letter Ss
Decorate the letter Ss with star stickers. Form the letter Ss with small sticks.

Bible: Read the story of Samson and discuss how Samson’s strength came from God. Memorize Matthew 6:33.

Letter Lunch: Sandwich, string cheese, squash, sunflower seeds, strawberries

Fine motor skills: Trace stencils. Use stamps. Practice using scissors.

Gross motor skills: Learn to skip. Dance with streamers.

Math: Sort objects by color, shape, and size. Review shapes. Create patterns using teaspoons and soup spoons.

Music: Learn “Seek Ye First” and “S-M-I-L-E.”

Language Arts: Play storytelling games. Use finger puppets to tell stories. Play “I Spy.” Read the following stories:

Science: Learn about the solar system. Experiment with sound and play sound bingo.

Social studies: Review basic rules of safety.
