Tot School Gathering Place Week 92

Another week accomplished! Doesn’t it sometimes feel like it was an accomplishment just to get through the week with our Tots? Keep on keepin’ on, Mama’s!!! You are doing an amazing job working with your Tots and helping them explore their world. Be sure to share with us your experiences by linking up your blog posts. You might inspire another mama with a new activity!

Were you able to experience the lunar eclipse this past week? We were and it was spectacular! Perhaps your child adores the moon as much as mine. If so, take a look at the wonderful activities that Mama Claire from Adventures in Tot Schooling put together to explore a favorite piece of literature!

You Can Read Sight Words ~ Unit 6

You Can Read continues to be a fun part of our homeschool Kindergarten.  Along with adding these new words, we also reviewed the previous words from unit one, unit two, unit 3, unit 4 and unit 5. You can see how we store ALL of our You Can Read stuff here.

Here’s a post sharing You Can Read Unit Six with Krash when he did it!  See all of Krash’s Kindergarten posts here.

We took two weeks to complete this unit, as you will see below.

Want to know my thoughts on teaching my kids to readHow Do I Teach My Child To Read

Bible Verse Printables Letter G

RLRS Letter G Matthew 28 Bible Verse Printables

Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter G are available to download for free!  G is for GO! This set is based on Matthew 28:19, “Therefore GO and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” 

We used the group version in my children’s church class of 4 & 5 year olds. I am using the home bundle with Ladybug as a review, working on the verses again later on.  For example, in my class we are on the letter N right now, but at home we just worked on our review of letter G. She is in my children’s church class so she is getting the group teaching and then getting it again at home with me.

 

Here’s a peek at the work she did at home.

She loves the coloring page. She likes to make it match.

RLRS Letter G -0997

 

Color ~ Trace ~ Write the letter Gg

RLRS Letter G -1097

 

Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying individual words and sounds she knows as well as the Bible verse as a whole. She uses the printable that has the light gray matching words on it.

RLRS Letter G -1049

 

We have a banner at church, which you can see a glimpse of here on Instagram. Here is  our home banner!

RLRS Letter G -1721

 

Here’s the work Ladybug did at home…

RLRS Letter G -1247

 

And, here’s Ladybug singing the verse for you!  The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear the tune for Letter G in this video!  In case you don’t catch it, the tune is She’ll Be Coming Around the Mountain.

Seeds Family Worship also has a wonderful version of this verse on their CD Seeds of Encouragement, it’s #8 “Go.” See it here on Amazon!

 

The free version is ONLY for home use.  If you will be using these printables in a church setting, private group, co-op, preschool or other group you will need to purchase the group bundle here.

WHY use Q-Tip Painting Printables?

The big answer is fine motor skills! You’ll notice how we focus on not only the tiny dots, but also using small items in painting or adding to the dots. All of this works on hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills

The letter identification is a secondary bonus!

Tot School Gathering Place Week 91

October is HERE! Wow – the months just seem to be flying! Before we know it Christmas will be here! (80 days to be exact!) Try to savor every moment with your Tot – this season doesn’t last long. And be sure to share with us all the fun activities that you and your Tot enjoy together!

Sometimes we Mama’s can get caught up in the purchasing of manipulatives, when making them would be much cheaper and more fun for our Tot’s! Head on over to Mama of 5 Blessings and see how she created an inexpensive math manipulative for her Tot.Mama to 5 Blessings (1)

 

Do your Tot’s enjoy science? Check out You Are the Roots for some wonderful ideas to help your child learn about classification of animals!

Sometimes our Tots just enjoy doing one thing! So we follow their lead and let them learn their way! Take a look at what Tot Sam is doing with Mama Debbie at West Word Blog.Westward Blog
