The Preschool Corner: Letter G

We're still moving on with our alphabet theme (even though these letters seem a little sporadic). We actually did a lesson on the letter "Q" this week, but just to thoroughly confuse you (really to help me catch up more), I'm going to post about the letter "G".

Are you confused yet? :) All the other letters of the alphabet are coming too, but I'm just catching up on these last few and then I'll be right back on track.

ABC Book: Gingerbread Man

While the letter "F" page was one of my favorites, this gingerbread man just made me hungry. I cut out the gingerbread man shape on a paper bag (remember he is glued to a 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper. Zachary used white paint that had a little bit of cinnamon scent in it to paint "icing" on his hands and feet. He also drew a face on and then we had fun fighting with the glue bottle so that we didn't have gobs of glue everywhere. Once we had a sufficient LITTLE amount of glue, we sprinkled glitter on for buttons and also a nose.

Alphabet Activities: Gingerbread Baby puppet

Zachary made a gingerbread baby 'puppet' also to use when we were reading the book "Gingerbread Baby" by Jan Brett (the book is just too cute) - and I'm guessing now that you realize the letter G was mostly focused on gingerbread.

I cut out a smaller pattern and he added some googly eyes and drew on a face. Zachary decorated it however he wanted (which meant markers everywhere). When he was done we taped a craft stick to the back and he played with it and made it run around everywhere during the story.

For some reason I can't find pictures of the puppet, but I do have pictures of my son after using white paint again.

Fun Activities: Glitter & Guitars

I'd love to meet a mom that truly enjoys her kids using glitter. And by enjoys, I mean - finding it everywhere for days to come after using it. Despite my aversion to glitter, we used it this week. Because glitter starts with the letter "G". As does "glue".

And I really don't think I need to give you many more specifics other than to say:

Glitter + Glue = Gobs of Gooiness (if that is even a word).


And before you think I was crazy foolish enough to make a glittery guitar, you may rest assured I had the glitter far, far away when we did this craft!

To make your own guitar you will need:

  • a small box (an oblong tissue box works great!)
  • some rubber bands
  • an empty paper towel roll
  • scissors
  • tape
  • and much patience if dealing with a 3 year old
On one of the ends of the tissue box, trace the end of the paper towel roll and then cut the circle out. Once the circle has been cut out, fit the towel roll into the hole. Depending on how tight the fit is, you may (or may not) have to use tape to secure the roll. Put 4-5 rubber bands around the box long-ways so that they go over the hole in the box. (Listening to your child whine every time a rubber band pops off is optional).


To get a little energy out we had fun around the house:
  • growling like bears
  • honking like geese
  • thumping our chests like a gorilla
  • sounding like goats
  • stomping like giants
  • jumping like grasshoppers
  • played Daddy's guitar (shhhhhh)

Even though this house was on gingerbread overload this week, here are some of the books we read:

Gingerbread Baby
by Jan Brett
Just Grandma and Me by Mercer Meyer
Just Grandpa and Me by Mercer Meyer

We also had some fun computer time with two Mercer Meyer cd-roms that we have for both Grandma and Grandpa. :)


Using My ABC Bible Verses by Susan Hunt we learned Mark 16:15 - "Go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone."


This week we continued using Peterson's Handwriting. We're doing a lot of gross motor activities right now to learn how letters are formed, so that when we actually sit down with a pencil and paper it will be a lot easier to recall the hand motions needed to make letters.

For example, "Tall down" = top to bottom movement. You can read more about Peterson's here.

It Only Seems Fair...

If the local school system has snow days, shouldn't we be allowed to have a snow day (or two) also?

It only seems fair.

So we did. And we enjoyed them. Even though it means next week will be a little bit more crazy - it's ok.

Homeschool Memoirs: Unit Studies

I suppose if I really admitted it (and fully realized it) - which I didn't until now, our entire school year so far has been a giant unit study of sorts. You'd think I'd catch on a little quicker, eh? We've been studying different countries around the world, but all with the purpose of learning more about our world as a whole.

Contained in little pockets of our study are smaller pockets of's amazing to me how one unit can contain other sub-units...and sometimes you can really get carried away. For example, we are studying world geography and as we studied Japan we also studied volcanoes and had a week-long adventure doing that. When we studied China we added in a unit on pandas. We've been using Galloping the Globe as a rough curriculum outline for our studies. At the start of the year I was glued to it, but the more we progress in our school year, the more comfortable I am figuring out my own plans (and sometimes now forget to use the book until I'm almost finished with my planning).

I usually do a post each week that talks about what we've been covering in our studies. If you'd like to see what we've been doing this year so far, you can following this link "Galloping the Globe". If you are more interested in a specific country, check out my sidebar where I've listed each country as we've studied them (scroll waaaaay down), along with the different animals and lapbooks that we've done. Just click the label/tag and you should find your way around. I've done my best to include the great links that I've found along with the resources that we've used or made along the way.

With our preschooler, our year has become one where we are doing a unit on the alphabet. Each week we talk about a new letter of the alphabet and all of our activities relate to that specific letter. I do a weekly summary on our activities here on Fridays and have pegged it the 'Preschool Corner'.

And as for my favorite unit study we've done so far? To narrow it down to one is rather hard, so I'll give you a couple that we've loved. Exploring Antarctica took us much longer than we thought and was very fun. Lapbooking enters our studies occasionally and I put one together this last year based on The Legend of the Easter Egg - we were going to have to enjoy it since I put so much work into it!

Have a question about what we're doing? Feel free to ask away.


Write Shop: Storybuilders

Until recently I had not heard of WriteShop, a company that has writing programs for children from PreK through high school. They sent me two Ebooks Story Builders: World of Animals and StoryBuilders: World of Sports to use with our girls and review - and both of my girls have loved them!

Laurianna enjoys writing stories on her own, but when it comes times for a specific writing assignment, both she and McKenna start whining and complaining when they have to write more than one sentence. Needless to say, assigned writing is not always a joy during our school time.

We started using the StoryBuilders as a fun activity/creative writing assignment and McKenna alone began writing unbelievable amounts! Primarily we've used StoryBuilders: World of Animals ($7.95). First we printed off word cards and sorted them into piles. The word cards can either be printed onto different colors of paper and sorted accordingly, or you can print them off using colored ink and sort them that way. Each card deck/color represents a different part of a story: character, character trait, plot and setting.

Once a card is picked from each pile, the kids put their story together using the "pieces" of the story they were given. To give you an idea of how it works, here are the words that McKenna had for her story: bat, confused, amusement park, and caught in a trap. The story she put together was:
Once there was a little boy who went in an amusement park. He found his bat. He said, "Why is it in here?" He was very confused. He saw a trap hanging from the ceiling. He was not fast enough, so he got caught in the trap!

While I realize not all of the story makes complete sense, this story was a huge step for McKenna! And she was so proud of the story and even drew pictures to go along with it.

There are several other StoryBuilder books available: World of People ($7.95) and Christmas Mini-Builder ($3.95). Each of the StoryBuilder Ebooks is available for immediate download and comes with the following:
  • 192 Story Builder cards in black print (to print on colored paper)
  • 192 Story Builder cards in colored print (to print on plain paper)
  • 48 blank cards
  • Ideas and instructions for use
While the StoryBuilders are not an entire curriculum for writing, they are a great activity to use once a week for getting the creative juices going. WriteShop does offer full writing programs for children Kindergarten through high school.

And as a bonus, The Old Schoolhouse Store is offering a FREE download this week for the StoryBuilders: World of Animals - a $7.95 value! Be sure to head there to take advantage of their great offer!

All About Homophones

A few months ago I reviewed a program All About Spelling by Marie Rippel. One that I will be using for years to come with our kiddos.

I am that much in love with the program.

Needless to say, I was thrilled beyond measure when they sent me a second product of theirs to review called All About Homophones: Your Complete Tool Kit. This is an amazing resource to help teach your children homophones quickly and easily (homophones are words that sound the same but are spelled, sea/see, etc...).

All About Homophones comes with homophone worksheets, games and activities, and includes over 200 pages of teaching tools and resources for you to help teach your child about homophones. The graphics alone in the book are wonderful and the curriculum itself is even better!

My girls have loved playing card games such as Go Fish!, Pig, Old Maid and more to help in learning the different words and their meanings. The information is presented in such a fun and interactive way that the girls forgot we were doing school - and to me, that's what learning is really all about!

Everything that you need for All About Homophones is included in the book you receive: reproducible pages for the card games, worksheets, graphic organizers, crossword puzzles, student record sheets, grade-level lists, teaching plans, and more! You can purchase a softcover printed copy ($19.95) or an ebook version ($17.95).

And if you haven't heard about All About Spelling, check out my earlier review about their curriculum. The All About Homophones Tool Kit comes with a money-back guarantee too - 30 days, no questions asked. I'll leave you with this fun translation from the homophone machine:

"Awl About Homophones is a grate tulle
two ewes inn you're school thyme."

See? Even I am having too much fun with it!

Tot School ::12::

~ Kaleb is 26 months ~

There were quite a few things that we did during our Tot School time this week that were repeats of last week's post, but we did branch out a little bit too. Since Kaleb is no longer taking a morning nap (please allow me to grieve this point *sob*) there was no way that I could avoid having him using the easel along with us.

And he was THRILLED.

And by thrilled I mean of the paint-splashing, scream-your-head-off when Mommy confiscates the paintbrushes kind of thrilled.

But it made for some wonderfully cute pictures of him doing his best to paint a marvelous picture.

Watching him paint was so sweet - he would close his little mouth when he dipped his brushes and then the mouth remained WIDE open when painting. Too.stinkin.cute.

I also received a Noah's Ark to review this week and he had so much fun pretending with me. Hearing him name some of the animals (umm...the ostrich isn't too easy, really) and make noises along with them is fun.

We spent time using playdough too - making snakes and trying to make shapes together. Kaleb loved using the molds we have for our playdough to make different designs and creatures.

A few weeks ago I picked up these stacking rings (I have no idea what else to call them) at a yard sale, so all the kids had fun playing with them. Kaleb had trouble actually getting them together, so we also tried sorting them by color and had him hand us the colors that we asked for...we're still working on learning our colors, even though he is sorting like a pro!

That wraps up our Tot School highlights for the week! Don't forget to visit Carissa at 1+1+1=1 for some more Tot School posts. She is also working on a new site, so stay tuned to see what she has planned! You are going to LOVE it!!

The Preschool Corner: Letter F

We have been moving on in our alphabet studies, but I want to be sure to catch up with the few posts that I missed, so this week I am posting what we did for the Letter F.

ABC Book: Fishbowl

I have to say that this is one of my favorite alphabet book crafts yet. :) The little fish with his googly eyes is just too cute for words. And Zachary definitely liked the glitter. I cut out the fish and the "bowl" along with some water and he glued it all on and then used a paintbrush to spread glue around so we could add some playsand on the bottom for the sand at the bottom of the bowl. He also used blue glitter to make the water a little more sparkly.

Alphabet Activities: Fingerprint F's

I wrote the letter F several times on a piece of paper and then Zachary had fun using some of my ink pads to put his finger print all over the letter F.

Next time I'll buy a washable ink pad. :)

Fun Activities: Rainbow Fish

This week we made our own rainbow fish using two paper plates, a brad, tissue paper and tinfoil. One paper plate remains whole and the other one is used to cut a wedge for the tail of the fish and then attached using the brad.

We made a watered down paste using glue and water and then Zachary laid 1-2" squares of tissue paper on the fish body and used a paintbrush to brush the glue mix over. Occasionally he used a square of tinfoil to make the fish glittery.


Zachary let the girls be a part of this time with us this week (so generous that he is). We pretended to fly like fairies, fish, fight fires, float in the water, freeze, fall like a leaf, leap like a frog....and then had fun playing a game of leapfrog together.

Letter Sheet/Collage

Stories and Books

Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister
Foot Book by Dr. Suess
One Fish, Two Fish by Dr. Suess


This week we used playdough as part of our writing time. We rolled out skinny snakes and then had fun forming them into the letter "F". We also used the worksheets (similar to Handwriting Without Tears) that I made.

Traveling Russia: Week 2

After our first week studying Russia, I found even more to study the next week. There are times when the resources seem to be overwhelming, especially when you find them on the tail end of your studies.

Both of our girls love to pretend to be ballerinas, so this week we spent some time listening to famous Russian composers and watching some ballet in action. Needless to say, there have been lots of tights flying, tutus twirling and spinning like crazy. Zachary included. :)

The Letter E is up for Preschool Corner!

I pulled together my post on the Letter E for the Preschool Corner. You can find the post here (buried back in my October posts). There's a part of me that just needs to have this all's a quirk of mine. :)

Slowly, but surely, I'm catching up on the past posts that are mixed in with our geography posts. As I finish separating them out, I am posting the links in the sidebar too - only F, G, and H to go!

Tot School ::11::

Tot School was a little scattered this week since Kaleb started acting very tired and lethargic on Wednesday and then that night began complaining that his ear hurt. We've never had one this young actually TELL us what was wrong with them, so at first we didn't really give it much credit. But it was so sweet (and sad all rolled into one) - he kept putting his little hand on his ear, leaning his head to the side and saying "hewrt, hewrt" in that cute little toddler voice. And sure enough he had a double ear infection.

Although we weren't quite as focused, we did get a few things squeezed in to our days. I pulled out a bunch of my teaching supplies from years ago and actually hung them up! When I use tape on our walls it leaves a nasty residue, so I finally bought some of the 3M adhesive tabs to hold up the shapes and colored crayons. And Kaleb LOVES them. He's been running over to the wall and naming colors, not the right ones, mind you, but at least his naming colors!! I pulled out some of the smaller crayons I had and he would hold them up to the matching crayon on the wall and repeat the color after I named it.

We also spent some time doing puzzles this week again. We're using the 3 part alphabet puzzles and only doing a few at a time so that it doesn't get too overwhelming for him.

He pulled out his stacking cups (Discovery Toys) and also his big buckets (Tupperware) to stack inside each other and also have fun stacking in a tall tower and then know down...or see if it would fit in his mouth. While it's great to strap him in at the table, it's also hard because those little arms can only reach sooooo high!

Since I don't have as much to share this week, I did want to share what my overall goals for Kaleb were this year:
  • Identify basic colors
  • Identify body parts
  • Identify 3 shapes
  • Sing ABC song and identify key letters (K for Kaleb, M for Mommy, D for Daddy)
  • Identify animals and the sounds they make
  • Sing a few simple songs (Twinkle, Twinkle, ABC's, Jesus Loves Me)
  • Count 1-5, then 1-10 if mastered
  • Sort items by color, type and size
  • Know difference between big/small
  • Understand prepositions on/off, in/on/under
  • Copy circles and lines
  • Put together simple puzzles

Be sure to head over to Carissa's at 1+1+1=1 for some more Tot School posts and ideas.

Traveling Russia: Week 1

This last week we started our study of Russia with the girls. I haven't had a chance to sit down and pull all my thoughts together until now, so I might miss some stuff that we did because there have been moments when we have veered off course from my plans and I keep forgetting to pencil in what we actually did {sigh}.

That said, I can give you a basic framework of what our week looked like, include some links that we/I used, the books we used, and one of the worksheets that I pulled together for us. I'm also working on putting a post together that talks about some of the specific things that I try to do for each country that we study (and might go into a little more detail in this post too about how we did some of the things to give you an idea).


  • Locate and map Russia. We have a wall map and globe that we use for this. The girls find the country on the map and we talk about a few different things: what continent the country is on, which hemispheres, what other countries it is near, etc...
  • Introduce our new geography song. I can't say enough about how much we have enjoyed the cd Geography Songs and how much the girls (and Zachary by default) have learned from this cd. This week we learned the song "Former USSR". As we sing the song, we find the other countries that are mentioned in the song and work on remembering where the countries are and pointing them as we sing along.
  • Use our atlas to learn more about Russia. We use The Children's World Atlas from Rand McNally. We read the little blurbs in the book on industry and other key facts about the country: population, major cities, etc...
  • Find the capital of the country


  • Read Children Just Like Me and complete the worksheet. I made a worksheet to go along with the book, so after we read about the child from the country we are studying, we fill in the information we learned (what city, religion, language, favorite foods, etc...)
  • Learn about Russia's flag. This week I made up a little worksheet about the flag of Russia (you can print it off below).
  • Review our geography song
  • Talk about some interesting facts about Russia: it is on two different continents (found dividing point), 11 different time zones, takes up almost all of Eastern hemisphere


  • Review our geography song with map.
  • Play a Russian game
  • Travel and learn a little about Russia via a website - a virtual tour


  • Review our geography song
  • Learn about the language(s) spoken in Russia and different religions. We also used this time to talk about the time that Russia was under Communist rule and people weren't allowed to believe in God.

Here are some of the books that we used this week in our studies:

Some great websites and links related to Russia:

This is the worksheet I put together on the Russian flag:

Next week we will be continuing our time in Russia and learning about the currency of Russia, making a meal, studying the different geography features of Russia and the climate and more so be sure to check back or look for the second link/post.

Homeschooling ABC's

Even though I'm in my third year of homeschooling, there are still questions I have as I work through the beginning stages of teaching my children. I received the opportunity to review a six-month long e-class called Homeschooling ABC's and although it is geared toward newer homeschoolers, I have LOVED it!!

Homeschooling ABC's sends a weekly lesson to members once a week (for 26 weeks) and breaks down the process involved in homeschooling into simple, manageable steps. Each week focuses on a different topic or aspect of teaching your children, including homeschooling philosophies, the learning styles of children, choosing a curriculum that fits your family and more.

The first eight weeks of lessons cover these topics:

  1. A Quick Start
  2. Let's Begin with the Basics
  3. Copy the Classroom - NOT
  4. Dare to Differentiate
  5. Establish Your Philosophy of Education
  6. Finding the Best Curriculum for Your Family
  7. Get Together - Netweorking with Other Homeschoolers
  8. Hands-On Learning for Greater Retention

The lessons all include links or attachments for products that go along with the materials in the lessons. The links and samples are products that Terri Johnson has found useful - and you don't need to go looking for those items!! At the end of each lesson there are also links to the previous lessons so you can go back and review if you would like to. Overall, there are over $200 worth of FREE downloads and samples available through the lessons.

I have loved the lessons. They have inspired me, pointed out a few new things to me and covered SO MUCH MATERIAL! They really remind you of why you began homeschooling in the first place and motivate and encourage you.

The cost of the Homeschooling ABC's e-class is really minimal and very manageable - $10/month for 6 months - that's less that $2.50/week. There are less than 150 spots left in the class, so hurry on over to their website to check it out! I have loved the lessons. They have inspired me, pointed out a few new things to me and covered SO MUCH MATERIAL! They really remind you of why you began homeschooling in the first place and motivate and encourage you.

If you aren't new to homeschooling, but know someone who is, pass this information/link along to them. I can guarantee that they will thank you for it! To read some other homeschooling parent's reviews of Homeschooling ABC's be sure to check out the Homeschool Crew blog.

Tot School ::10::

~ Kaleb is 25 months old ~

We pulled out a few of the newer Christmas toys this week for the little man to play with, so he was rather thrilled. I apparently underestimated him when buying some of the toys (sigh), since he has already 'mastered' some of the puzzles. But as long as he enjoys doing them and playing with them, we'll keep using them!

Although we have the smaller leap pad, Kaleb isn't quite up to it yet so he has another toy that is similar and does alphabet and counting - just the basic things. Since he is becoming more interested in singing the alphabet he is more interested in this one now. Another day he lugged it around the house with him and let his sisters push him around in the laundry basket while he played along.

Kaleb is also loving his stringing beads and figured out how to get them on the string all by himself this time! He actually did quite a few and then dumped them all over the table.

He then started stacking the square blocks and building a tower. He was so thrilled with himself!

We also pulled out the colored bears for sorting this week to see if he could continue to sort the four colors, which he did! Yeah, Kaleb!

Kaleb has been having fun discovering the difference between hot and cold. We freeze our gogurts and so he sits at the lunch table saying "Cold? Cold?" while squeezing his gogurt. Then later he runs over to the stove asking, "Hot? Hot?" He's got it down now!!

Laurianna also had fun trying to teach Kaleb how to play Go Fish. We have some great cards from Alphabet Alley that are nice and thick (you can read more about them here). Love them!!

Years ago I bought a cd from Discovery Toys called Sounds Like Fun. Every now and then we've been playing it and Kaleb LOVES the alphabet sounds song on the cd. Here he is at the table singing along and raising his apple in the air while singing "Apple, apple, ah, ah, ah." (If you don't have this cd, I'd highly recommend it!!).

Be sure to visit Carissa at 1+1+1=1 for some more Tot School posts! Have a great week!
