Homeschool Weeks 3 and 4

      Our third week of homeschool was even better than the first 2 weeks. Jordyn has become even more comfortable with our new routine of "school." I have really enjoyed watching her grow. In many ways I have to model for her how to perform many of the tasks. My modeling has paid off, she has caught onto some skills that she started off having no success at. I am so proud of her and I can not wait to see just how much she will grow over the course of this year.

Week 3
ABCJesusLovesMe    Creation Day 4 "God made the Sun, Moon, and Stars"
Letter of the Week      Letter B   B is for Ball
Themeof the Week      "Ball and Fun in the Sun"
I did not do a very strong theme this week we mainly focused on the letter sound.

Day 1
Letter B
Theme: Balls and Outdoor Fun

Messy Fun: Playdoh

Bird, Butterfly, Bunny, Letter B
B Beginning Sounds
This was just for fun. Alvin pulled out the animals and she placed them where she thought they would live.
Check out the swan in the sky.
Day 2   Forgot a pic. of Tot Tray Shelf :(

Dot Painting!!!!!!!!!!!!


Water Coloring the "Big B" and "Little B"
FYI...Do not use cheap Dollar Tree Paints


1 : 1 Correspondence
God made the Stars on Day 4 of Creation
This is a skill we will be working on more often.
Day 3
Tot Trays
We worked our "B" puzzles from our ABC Basket.


Stamping the Letter B
The B says Buh as in Ball


Goodnight Moon Sensory Bin
Goodnight Moon was our Book of the week


Items from book:
Cow, Moon, Stars, 3 Chairs (No Bears) Kitten, Mittens, Mouse (No House), Clock, Socks
I am still looking for 3 little Bears, a small toy house, a small comb, a small brush, and a small bowl full of mush.


She had fun anyways. She asked to play with this all week. I was sad to put it away.

Day 4 Tot Trays with no action shots,.,,,, and I forgot to take Day 5 pics.
Here is finished work from learning about the 4 days of Creation. We used these completed items to review the days of Creation during week 4 of homeschool.
Week 4  
ABCJesusLovesMe    Creation Day 1-4 Review Week
Letter of the Week      Letter C    C is for Cat
Theme of the Week     Pets
Day 1
Gluing on our "C" page....a cat and cross
Still obsessed with glue sticks
Tracing the Letters with stones

Day 2
Sponge Painting.... First time for Jordyn
Dabbing the paintbrush vs. brushing was the challenge
She self corrected many times


Cat Puzzle
She was not very interested
I guess the suggestion of 3 and up is a good one in this case.
It doesn't hurt to model though.

Do you know who made the clouds? Made the clouds. Made the clouds.
Do you know who made the clouds? It was God who made the clouds.

Walking on the letter C with our Cat

I made shapes with our Letter Construction Kit.
After I placed them around the room she got to run to the one I called out.
Example. Run to the Big Circle

Day 3

This is a skill during "Praise Time" that she has really improved on. Here we are coloring the smiley face our 'color of the week.' She started off just drawing scribbles on the whole page and now you can see she is coloring on one of the smiley faces. I am soooo impressed.

This was so much fun.
She really took her time and was obsessed with the animals for the rest of the week.

She can ID circle, triangle, square, star, moon, diamond, and rectangle.
We are working on oval and hexagon.

Yes Jordyn a bird is a pet.

fun fun

Day 4



Day 5


Completed work for C is for Cats ...Pets theme

This is her 'Memory Verse' Lapbook

This is not a very good video of her reciting her memory verse, but it is all I could catch. Maybe next week she will say it better.
