Kindergarten with Krash ~ Camping Theme

K-with-Krash2_thumb11222

We have spent the remainder of our summer learning through our fun camping theme, which Krash has loved!  He is way ahead with his official school, so I have backed off and set a lesson and start date…just doing fun stuff until we get to Sept 12.

We used the following resources all week long…

He made words using Jolanthe’s awesome Read! Build! Write! printables.  We have magnetic letters from this kit and he used those to build on our cookie sheet. I keep our tiles on our magnetic hanging chalk board.IMG_1085

The dry erase activity center was used the entire week!  Here he is finding the different object…IMG_1041

Circling the beginning sound…IMG_1094

Matching rhyming words…IMG_1098

They loved the graphing game from 2 Teaching Mommies!  They played a few different times!IMG_1100

He wasn’t a huge fan of getting his hands dirty with our campfire craft, but he did it!IMG_1030

He preferred the pretend play with the finished products!

Although we haven’t started school officially he has completed his online assessments.  We get free access to the Let’s Go Learn site which includes the DORA and DOMA tests.  Through our cyber school he takes these a few times a year and we get detailed reports back.  IMG_1047

He has played a lot with our new magnetic ring toyIMG_1273

 

Living up to his nickname Krash.  Poor guy, PacMan thought it would be fun to sling him off of the back of the Plasma Car!IMG_1158

 

He too enjoyed our camping trip, along with Ladybug.  He has different interests though.  He preferred anything involving movement or hands-on with an animal! Biking and scootering were his definite favorite activities! Thank you Strider Bike-he learned to ride a real bike at age 4 in less than 10 minutes!

He loved looking at and touching the fish too…

He obviously did NOT enjoy actually fishing.  Way too much quiet for him.IMG_2030

The frog was the highlight of his trip.  He played with this guy for quite awhile {poor froggy}.IMG_2250

Woops. {the frog was not harmed.  Scared-probably, but harmed-no.}IMG_2265
