First Week

This was our first week, almost a year ago:
Our very first week of homeschooling was a great success! My son is newly three and we are working on a pre-reading curriculum using mostly The Letter of the Week and Prekinders, but also many others for printouts. You can check out the Preschool-K tab on the top of this page if you are interested in some of the sites that I've used.

The themes for this week were:

  • A, a
  • 1
  • Square
  • Red
  • Farm
Most of our time was spent focusing on the farm because it is so much fun and there is so much to learn about the farm! We have toy farm animals to play with, they are perfect for learning the names of the animals and what sounds they make as well as how the farmer takes care of them. We also have puzzles with farm animals and we've been coloring farm pictures. We even made up a game that he adores. He pretends to be a farmer who is sleeping and then I pretend to be a rooster to wake up the farmer.

With the letter Aa, the number 1, the color red, and squares we have been doing a variety of activities. We have played detectives, looking around for the number 1, letter A, red and squares. Sqaures can be found all over, we have found them on a CD case, on posters, books, blocks and more! The letter Aa and number 1 can be found in books, on posters, games, puzzles, and much more. We sing songs, talk about the day of the week and the weather outside, we read stories, talk about our themes, and do some basic flashcards

This is our daily calendar, we learn what day of the week it is and discuss the weather in the morning and the afternoon. You can see that the weather has been keeping us on our toes!

The following are some of the projects and worksheets that we have done for the week:
