Homeschool - F is for Fish

Noelle had a couple of first times this week in Preschool.

She wrote her name all on her own!

I was cheering her on with each letter. I even teared up a bit when she was done. One proud momma!

She also matched every capital letter of the alphabet with its lower case letter on her own. This time I wasn't even around. I was making lunch and she was working on it on the floor in the living room.

Another alphabet activity:
On strips of paper I wrote a capital letter with several lower case letters. She picks the matching lower case letter and marks it with a clothes pin. 

Letter of the Week Activities


Counting & Sorting


Measurement Activity
Rice in a container
Measuring cups / Bottles
Measuring spoons

Noelle picks what number she wants to fill the bottle to then uses the spoons to fill the bottle to that number. She loves this activity and usually works on it for 15 minutes each day. Great for younger kids too!

Bible Story
Jonah and the Big Fish

A successful and fun week. I'm looking forward to "G" week! G is for GARDNER!
