Raising Rock Stars Preschool ~ Letter Aa

Raising Rock Stars Preschool Letter A



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 ~ Aa, our verse: A soft answer turns away wrath.Aa

He continues to LOVE coloring his verse!IMG_9588

He LOVED that I let him tape his kind words craft together!!IMG_9800

He thought the PowerPoint was hilarious {I made it so that the animal on each page of the easy-reader “runs” away! We watched it over and over and over!!!IMG_9705

I put up these neat cork squares {got mine at Target} above his desk so I could pin up his work as he completes it each day and then show Daddy when he gets home from work! It has been really neat for Krash and he loves showing off his work {which also ends up being a great review!!!}. Here’s how his board looked before I cleaned it off to prepare for the next week.

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

He not only matched up the shapes with me, but also traced a few of them, at HIS REQUEST!!! IMG_9702

He was challenged a bit, but put his entire ABC floor puzzle together with no help from me!IMG_9791 IMG_9795 Afterwards, I had him find the matching letter. I handed him a lower case magnet and asked him to name it and find it!IMG_9811

We did a few fun letter of the week activities. Here he is sorting his upper and lower case As, which he loved! IMG_9542

We had already made our ABC Crafts, A is for Alligator, so I just took it out to show him!

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

I am finding that our Star Boxes are evolving since we are in the new school room. Krash has the freedom to choose from various open ended toys now, not just the 3 in his Star Boxes. I am going to continue to move some toys down to his Star Boxes for rotation, but he also has free access to other bins in our schoolroom now. You’ll see the Star Box toys for the week listed in our weekly lesson plans {the pdf page shown above in the RRSP section} and here I will include any photos from the week that show his free play with open-ended toys.

Guidecraft has hit a home-run again, you saw a peek in my Tot School post earlier in the week. Krash is also a HUGE fan of the Rainbow Blocks…IMG_9611He was impressed with the colors, and also that he could make a circle! On the right, you can see him driving his rocket ship!

Something Special Krash really loved our special time each day last week. He enjoyed making a falling leaves craft, singing fall leaves songs, learning the basics of laundry, and baking pumpkin pie!

techy time

I think it is pretty obvious by the smile on his face that he really enjoys his ABC Twiggles time. Here he was watching the Aa book, Ants Ants Everywhere! online, after doing the apple maze you see in his hand in the photo. The Aa unit is a FREE preview on their site if you want to check it out! IMG_9712

He participates daily in our geography time, and is learning many states, capitals and even a few abbreviations! I am amazed with what he is soaking in just by being with us! The USA PowerPoints {up through states beginning with L} are located in the Members Only section.IMG_9603

He still really likes Starfall, and now Ladybug joins him!IMG_9467

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

I won MAJOR MOMMY POINTS when I laminated the coloring pages he had done of his favorite Hot Wheels Battle Force 5 guys. They then turned into great learning tools!IMG_9493I had him choose a coordinating pillow {these are the same minky dot color squares my mom made that I showed in my recent Tot School post} and blanket for each guy, based on their clothing colors.IMG_9534 IMG_9536 IMG_9539

Legos have come out BIG TIME around here as Krash has shown interest and Pac’s interested has renewed. Krash has been building like crazy!IMG_9767

I love these shots of him doing P is for PUSH UPs {ABC Movement Cards}, during our morning calendar time!IMG_9781Pretty good form for a 4 year old!! IMG_9782
