Preschool Corner ~ Assessing and Starting Up

I had much bigger plans this week than what we actually accomplished. We thought that Kaleb was feeling better after last week’s bout with sickness, but this week the sickies were lingering so more time was spent holding a feverish boy than completing the lesson plans and activities I had planned.

Such is life at times, right?

When we WERE able to work, I pulled out some different activities to try to get a good baseline on what he does/doesn’t know. I printed off some of Carisa’s preschool assessment tools from her Raising Rock Stars Preschool page and we completed a few of the activities together.

As we reviewed different letters of the alphabet, Kaleb had fun using his new Do-A-Dot markers to color in his alphabet phonics coloring pages. We didn’t make it through the set as I had planned {more like up to the letter G}, but he is loving his new markers and the pages, so they will continue into next week too.

We’re also trying to get Kaleb into the routine of his new workboxes {which he is not very excited about yet} and figure out how his schedule is going to mesh with our daily school routine. It’s a work in progress at this point, but we’re working at it one day at a time.

In case you missed them earlier this week, I posted some Cubbies verse printables that I put together for Kaleb to use this year when he starts Awana…and then found out he’ll be using a different book. :) Be sure to check out the Cubbies verse page though, since you can use them with your preschooler even if you aren’t doing Awana.
