Raising Rock Stars Preschool ~ Letter Ee

Rock starsThis is the main section of our preschool posts-focusing on what we do for our Raising Rock Stars Preschool Curriculum. I am not sharing photos of each part every week, just what I happen to catch! We do the entire unit even if I don’t show it here in the photos!

Raising Rock Stars Preschool Letter E

Our letter this week ~ Ee, our verse: Even a child is known by his deeds.

Here Krash is reading his easy reader. {which focused on positional words, as well as a letter e word: egg, and the sight word: is} He did much better with his reading when using the PowerPoint rather than the paper copy of the book. He is not very fond of the paper books, {but does like real books, whew!}IMG_3127

 

He did very well with his writing this week. We are really working on this left handed thing. I recently learned from a reader {thanks Val!} that I was supposed to turn the paper diagonally to help left handers…who knew? I honestly don’t ever remember learning about this…should have been a part of teacher certification, don’t ya think? Here’s the helpful site if anyone else has a lefty.

He resisted the page turning at first, wanting it straight, but eventually trusted me ;-). I am also REALLY working on keeping his grip correct {something I was not as intentional as I should have been with Pac Man-who now writes like I do}.

He still loves taping his verse together and then comparing its length to himself!

Here he is working with his egg and basket {the craft for the week}. It was a hands on activity as well as a craft. He colored the egg, then we used it to practice positional words {like in the easy reader}. Afterward we glued it to his paper.

We used our RRSP Review mat to find the letter Ee!!!

We started the Kumon Drawing book this week. While Krash was away I took the book apart and placed the pages in sheet protectors so we could reuse it. I am having Krash trace on the sheet protector with a dry erase marker…IMG_2949…then I am having him actually do the drawing in his own notebook which has drawing space and writing lines. I am having him dictate a sentence or 2 about his drawing. This week he did 2 drawing lessons, and he didn’t totally love either one ;-), drawing isn’t really his thing. He is actually struggling a LOT with his drawing and it frustrates him. We’re taking it slow though and keeping it FUN, while also learning some skills!

Here he is showing my dad his drawing and reading his sentences with him. IMG_2837

He did a great job reviewing his numbers with our clothespin number cardsIMG_2940

We did a few fun letter of the week activities. Here he is sorting his upper case and lower case Ee’s…IMG_2946

He dot painted an elephant…IMG_3138

We played E-e Tic-Tac-ToeIMG_3159

He made the letters on a Play Doh mat {which is inside of a sheet protector}IMG_3161

 

 

star boxesThis is where I share the 3 special open-ended toys that were in our Star Boxes for the week.

Our 3 STAR boxes for the week: Unifex Cubes, Pop Beads, and Eggs & Spoons. I only got a picture of K counting his tower of cubes ;-)…IMG_3173

He loves to count!!!!

 

techy time

He worked with our new Simple 3-letter CVC words PowerPoint {this is located in the Members Only section}. He grasped the concept more than I thought he would, and really enjoyed the show!

game time

Our game this week was Hullaballoo. I was a lazy mom and only played the first day. The boys played alone several times though. ;-) This game is great for…

  • colors, shapes, vocabulary
  • listening and following directions
  • getting energy out!

Life SchoolThis is where I share games, toys, and life experiences that occur outside of our planned preschool time.

Remember my Tot School post where I shared how much Ladybug loves her new Felt Food? Well, Krash loves it EVEN MORE!!! Here he is washing each piece of food so he can serve me dinner ;-). His blankee was the dishwasher. We are SO thankful to Susan for sending it to us, and allowing us to host a giveaway for her soon!IMG_3212

Here the boys are riding their Unicycle. This is the fun new part we have added to our morning routine. Each boy chooses an action ABC card and we all do it together!!!! They both LOVE this!!!IMG_3145

My boy is a BIG Batman fan. When I found Batman books in the $1 section at Target I snatched them up!!! I knew he would like them, I had NO idea he would sleep with them at night!!!! He loves this book {I have the other 3 saved to bring out later}. He has spent so much time reading this book!!!IMG_2840

 

Moms fav

As I said above, BIG Batman fan. I surprised the boys with this dress up kit, and Krash has literally been Robin almost the entire week {as I am sure you noticed in many photos above}. IMG_2885
