Raising Rock Stars Preschool ~ Letter Vv

Rock stars 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 ~ Vv, our verse: Verily verily I say unto you, he that believeth on me shall have everlasting life.

This verse is a bit complex and honestly I would have switched it to NIV if it weren’t for the V in Verily ;-). I did not push the exact word for word memorization of this verse as much as the meaning. We talked about everlasting life and what this means. You will see that the unit itself focuses on Jesus being the one and only way!!!

Krash enjoyed using his new Bat Man markers to color his Bible Verse Coloring SheetIMG_4692

Cutting his vocabulary cards…IMG_4694

Cutting his verse…IMG_4751Taping is a VERY favorite activity and he now does very well with it. IMG_4753After completing his verse, he asked me to put it on his head. He told me he was a pirate. ;-) IMG_4757

He wore his pirate Bible verse hat while he worked on his tracing…IMG_4780

Cutting out his ONE WAY JESUS arrow craft…IMG_4858

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

Mr. Crunch from our Grashopper Preschool Prep Kit has become a FAST favorite. We were sent this awesome Getting Our Hands Ready kit to review and have just begun by using Mr. Crunch. Krash loves this! What’s the point you ask? Mr. Crunch is designed to strengthen those little hand muscles in a fun way!!! You pinch his face and his mouth opens to eat the “bugs” which are similar to mini erasers.

We also played with the dough and mini dough stamps. He loved this! You’d think the boy had never played with PlayDoh before! This dough is different than PlayDoh, he really liked it. The kit comes with a container of the dough, a rolling pin and these little stamps. K loved using his muscles to roll the dough out and then creating patterns with the stamps.

IMG_5055Stay tuned, you’ll be seeing more of this awesome kit! It is filled with activities to get those adorable little hands ready!

We played memory with our new Shape cardsIMG_4301

We also did a few extra V activities! We focused mostly on V is for vegetables, since that’s what most of our V activities were based around. We read tons of vegetable books too!

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, Lincoln Logs, and Learning Links. IMG_4982

game timeOur game this week was Zingo. Zingo is a fun and very simple game, which is right up my alley.

Krash likes Zingo a lot. He asked to just “play” by himself a lot. We also played together just about every day! Skills we focused on while playing Zingo…

  • Print awareness…I used the cards to point out the words under the pictures,
  • Beginning sounds…we talked about several of the cards as we played them and I asked K casually what sound he heard at the beginning of the word.
  • Small muscle skills-needed to properly make the card thingy slide each time. K really had to focus on this to get it right.
  • Taking turns, being polite, being a good loser!

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

A bit of sword fighting…boys will be boys {and I love it!}

K isn’t my book lover {that’s Ladybug}, but every now and then he gets engrossed in a certain book. This day it happened to be our Pets book from Usborne.IMG_4684

The boys had a blast playing rocket ship in our empty box {the same box that was used for the slimy pit}. The imagination and creativity I overheard was awesome! They went on all sorts of adventures.IMG_4925

Then they decided they would decorate their rocket. {yes this is a view in our new schoolroom. The boys are standing in the new dining room, and down below them is the new school room} IMG_4932

Krash got to go to the Reading Rocks party at our church this year! He didn’t participate in the full program {next year he will, it’s ages 5-12} but he did come one day so we let him come to the celebration. He was thrilled to get his certificate… IMG_4826VERY proud of his backpack!!!!IMG_4844

There’s my boys with the whole group of kids this year! Each one is sporting a brand new backpack LOADED with school supplies!!!! IMG_4850 ~Reading Rocks is a program I developed at our inner city church to motivate kids to read!!! This was our 6th year hosting the program!!!

We are still Minute to Win It fans. I catch the boys practicing on their own sometimes. Here they set up their own version of Sticker Picker UpperIMG_4371
