Laid-Back School ~ Preschool Corner {& 5K too!}

After returning from the conference this past weekend, I was wiped…and apparently so was a little 4 year old.  He spent the first few days of the week s.i.c.k., but still wanting to do some school things with me.

Our week consisted of a lot of reading together and then fun with some favorites and some new things too. As a family we’re using a new history curriculum and Kaleb has been sitting in on the lessons. As we read, he colors a page along with us. We also started using a FUN new Bible with him ~ My First Hands-on Bible. We have the older kids version of this Bible {the Hands-on Bible and we love it too!!}.

As we read through the stories, there are little ‘handprints’ that give little suggestions of things to do at that point in the story. The handprint in the text below you to the handprint in the sidebar which gives the following suggestion: “Pretend you’re a snake. Can you move around without using your arms and legs?”


The end of each My First Hands-on Bible story there are ideas {things to talk about, activities, a prayer, and a ‘Jesus connection’ that shows how Jesus is the center of all Scripture, even when He isn’t mentioned. Kaleb is so excited to have his own Bible so he can be a part of our school time too. :)

For math time, Kaleb is learning about time {to the hour} and wants to practice writing his numbers all the time and we’re occasionally using pages from our Abeka Math K book.


We worked on several more lessons in our All About Reading Pre 1 program {lowercase d and e}. Kaleb loves the letter crafts and ESPECIALLY Ziggy!


One of the things that we spent time reviewing this week were the syllables in words. Kaleb had Ziggy say the words we were sorting and then put them under the correct syllable number column.


Before you let this next picture fool you…Kaleb really does not know how to play chess. The older kids are trying to teach him…and I will admit that he knows more about it than I do! Rick sat down to play with him in the afternoon, and it was just too cute not to take a picture. Kaleb asks the kids each day to play with him. :)


Everyone is feeling better now and next week promises to be much more fun….how are things going in YOUR house?
