Preschool Week 4

Preschool Week 4
Age 3

We have been doing school activities the last 2 weeks.  I just haven't had time to post.  Here are some activities we have worked on.

Bible Acitivity- Noah and the Ark

We read the story from one of Little Sweets Noah board books.  It has flaps she can flip up. One page has color words which is great because that is what we are working on for reading.

Literacy- Color Words
Little Sweets is working on reading color words.

Math- Ordinal Numbers
Little Sweets showed which animals were first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth. 

Fine Motor, Art, and Literacy
Little Sweets read the color word on the rainbow and painted the line that color.  She used her color words sheet to help her with the colors she didn't know.

Math-  Number Recognition and Counting
Little Sweets named the number and put the corresponding number of popsicle sticks in each toilet paper roll. 

Science, Art, Literacy

I thought it would be fun to do a color mixing activity.  Little Sweets is learning to read color words.  Right now I am giving her help by writing the word in the corresponding color. (We just started working on the words).  Little Sweets read the word and made hypothesis about what the new color will be.  She picked purple. 

I mixed blue and green food coloring with baking soda.  Little Sweets helped me squirt some vinegar into the jar.

The reaction was very cool and we made a new color, green.  Little Sweets doesn't look to enthusastic in this picture, but she did have fun with this activity.

Dramatic Play, Literacy, Math, Fine Motor

Little Sweets and I played store.  She made the sign for store. I told her the letters to write.  She hasn't worked on s yet so I wrote that letter.  The rest she wrote.  She also took scissors and snipped the edge of the paper.  She is getting real good at this. 

Her Princesses bought different dresses at the store.  She told me how much they were and counted out that many pennies.

We took turns working at the cash register.
