Raising Rock Stars Preschool ~ Letter Xx

Raising Rock Stars Preschool Letter X

This 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!

Our letter this week ~ Xx, our verse: EXcept you be converted and become as little children, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven.

A view from the floor. I was sitting on the floor working with Krash and looked up and snapped a shot, for those of you who like a peek ;-). We added in BODY books this week to go with X is for X-ray. We also used books focused on Jesus and children.IMG_3311

Krash colors his verse…IMG_3299

He still loves cutting, and was in love with the box and fox cards…first time he really acknowledged rhyming words on his own!!!IMG_3301

He was blown away to find himself in the easy reader ;-) IMG_3424

A little cutting, gluing, and matching for the craft of the week…IMG_3793 He was oh-so-thrilled to have this shot taken ;-) IMG_3812

This week Pac helped him tape his verse together…

He did really well this week reading and tracking along with the easy reader on the PowerPoint.

in the box {A few things that were in his preschool workboxes for the week, not all activities are pictured}

He did one drawing from his Kumon Drawing book this week. This is definitely not his favorite thing, so I don’t push him to do more than one a week for now ;-).IMG_3316

He did #1-7 of our Pom Pom Numbers. He wanted the colors to match {his idea} so we worked together to get them sorted and then figured out which color went on which card {they are self-correcting, as each # is a different color}IMG_3308

Xx’s on a Play Doh matIMG_3825

We did a few fun letter of the week activities. Here he is doing his very first color-by-number! I was amazed with how well he did and how much he enjoyed this!!!IMG_3470

Matching xylophone shapes…IMG_3562

He dot painted a xylophone… IMG_3314

We finally got back to our ABC Crafts and will now be matching the letters we have left with our RRSP units. Here he is making X is for Xray…IMG_3566

He matched clothespin colorsIMG_3467

Pounding the ABCsIMG_3474

He did these 3 Letter puzzles and after he finished them we flipped them over and worked on letter sounds together. He still doesn’t grasp the blending part, but he’ll get it soon, no rush!IMG_3568

 

star boxes This 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: Foam ABCs, Wedgits, Lacing Beads {which he literally did not touch all week long}. The letters were the favorite item of the week. He had the brilliant idea to connect them all to make a road for his cars…IMG_3321 We did this on more than one day…IMG_3535

Krash likes our Wedgits, but not nearly as much as Ladybug and Pac Man do ;-) IMG_3600

 

game time IMG_3320

Our game this week was Chutes n Ladders. I must be honest and say this is probably my LEAST favorite children’s game, ever. But, I was a good Mommy and we played every.single.day. I dislike this game because it can go on and on and on and on. 1 chute and you’re history. The boys, however, LOVE this silly game!

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

Although K hasn’t begun to read on his own yet, he is VERY interested in learning to read. He has all of the readiness signs, and we’re just continuing to work with him. By “we” I mean Pac Man also! P loves to teach and thankfully K loves to be taught sometimes! Here Pac was teaching him in great detail using a book he loves.IMG_3781

Krash loves to explore Ladybug’s Tot Trays ;-p, brings back good memories for him I suppose! I try to challenge him a bit with her trays when he shows interest in them. Here I had him trying to drop the stick in while holding them higher . IMG_3373

$5 for a water hopscotch=two VERY happy boys. Krash loved learning to play hopscotch ;-P {it was from Target}IMG_3338

Anyone else watch Minute to Win It? We are in LOVE, Krash is attempting Noodling Around ;-) IMG_3532

Moms favIMG_3833 It was impossible to choose just one this week, so here’s a few more favorites…IMG_3894IMG_3958IMG_3776
