Here are this week's boxes:
Transferring jingle bells (a favorite!), Matching the letter
Fall Leaf Sort (all items from the Dollar Store)
Letter "C" Items, puzzle
These are the crafts we did this week:
Cotton ball "clouds" on the letter "C" (printable from here
We made cupcake crayons (250 degrees for 15 minutes, let set until cool remove the paper and then freeze until set up).
Pom Pom catepillar (my three year old got crazy with the pom-poms!), Do A Dot Caterpillars
We read the following books for the letter C:
Curious George- H.A. Rey
The Very Hungry Caterpillar: Eric Carle
Chicken Soup with Rice- Maurice Sendak (one of my favorite stories from my days in First Grade!)
Caps for Sale- Esphyr Slobokina
Harold and the Purple Crayon- Crockett Johnson
Our Bible Lesson this week was Adam and Eve disobeyed God. I did not have any crafts for the children, but we read through the lessons in Ken Hamm's A is for Adam.
At the end of the week we used the magnets from So Simple So Sweet to have the children re-tell the lesson.
We did two fall activities this week. First we made apples from yarn. They were adorable the directions can be found here.
We also made a fall pumpkin scene. The first day we sprinkled the seeds (spices), the second day our vine grew (ribbon), the third day our green pumpkins emerged (little green pom-poms) and the fourth and final day our pumpkins turned big and orange (pom-poms). The original idea can be found here. We used our gnomes instead of Calico Critters (we don't own any but own Maple Towns from the 80's but I am not ready to give them to my kids yet!)
We read books about apples and pumpkins as well as:
How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin?- Margaret McNamara and G. Brian Karas
Leaf Man- Lois Ehert
We did a couple of reinforcing activities:
Pumpkin Poke Cards
Sight Word Cookie Flip
Sight Word Cookie Flip
We had a crazy week. We started our week on Sunday (I would never do this, but my husband came home for a couple days and I did not want to have to worry about school while he was here). It was a good week overall and we accomplished pretty much everything we needed to. We were also able to attend a preschool song and storytime at the library (something that we have not done for a couple years, and the kids really enjoyed it!)
