Raising Rock Stars Preschool ~ Letter Dd

Raising Rock Stars Preschool

Our letter this week ~ Dd, our verse:

Letter Dd

See RRSP Letter Dd with Krash here!

Not familiar with RRSP? Read the intro post here!

 

You can tell by her outfits what she did on each day, about 2 RRSP activities per day plus the PowerPoint. 

My girl doesn’t really love coloring anymore, and that makes me sad.  She was a coloring fanatic for about 2 years and now recently she isn’t all that interested.  So, we color together, she likes that.Home Preschool Letter Dd -9709

 

She loves using the dry erase center for her tracing…

She adores the mini books and always asks for it right when she notices it hanging up on the board!Home Preschool Letter Dd -1048

 

We used our measuring tape to measure our verse after she cut and taped it!  This has become a regular thing now and it is a great way to bring in basic measurement and number ID in a natural way!Home Preschool Letter Dd -9751

 

PacMan caught us in action one day doing the Letter Dd PowerPoint.  I don’t often have photos since she sits on my lap most of the time like this!photo(3)

 

The entire printable unit {everything else you see pictured above} is available for FREE!

Our ABC Find It activities are probably her favorite thing, she was excited to see the new Letter C sheet! We are using the printables 3 different ways, the first day I let her do a sensory bin search to find all of the little cards.Home Preschool Letter Dd -9719

When she is done, she likes to take the small items from her ABC Basket and bury them in the rice bin.  She played with them for about an hour!Home Preschool Letter Dd -9724

On another day, we hid the cards around the room, she used binoculars to find them…Home Preschool Letter Dd -1012 Home Preschool Letter Dd -1015

Back when we did Tot School Printables, she wasn’t really into the matching and 3 part puzzles, but now she loves them, so we use them now!

Once a week I take all of the letter puzzles out of her ABC basket and put them in a work drawer to have her sort them all out and put them together.  She really likes this!Home Preschool Letter Dd -9748

 

In honor of letter D, I added in some DINOSAUR learning as well.  My gal loves dinos, so she was thrilled!  The theme books are always her favorite…Home Preschool Letter Dd -9690

She loved the dinosaur sensory bin and toy set up…Home Preschool Letter Dd -1034

More Preschool Fun!

Not everything we do revolves around our letter of the week, I just often forget to take pictures of the rest!

We had a really FUN day when a big box came in the mail for my kids from an old friend {she was MY babysitter when I was a little girl!}.  Darlene, I know you are reading, and the kids say THANK YOU for loving on them!

Ladybug LOVES the POP Counting game, I can’t even count how many times we have played this!Home Preschool Letter Dd -9774

The pattern block activity set was a big hit too!Home Preschool Letter Dd -9780

She got two dry erase wipe-off workbooks, we worked for awhile in the Colors and Shapes bookHome Preschool Letter Dd -9788

Most fun for my girl almost every week, mixing her paint.  She mixes all of the colors immediately and then paints.  This drives me nuts and is one of the few ways we are different!Home Preschool Letter Dd -1023

Dinosaur Sensory Bin

 

Dinosaur Theme Sensory Bin

Along with our RRSP Letter D week, we included DINOSAURS! Ladybug loves dinos, and we have never had a dinosaur sensory bin, so I put one together for the kids! Here is the dino set up we had, complete with our collection of dinosaur books and all of the dinos we have!

Both of the boys enjoy the sensory bins immensely, they are still a big hit around here!

Just Color! Dinosaurs

The idea behind Just Color! is simple ~ theme packs all focused around coloring. There are mostly coloring pages, and a few coloring activities. The coloring pages are all in one download to make it easier to download and print all at once, in case you have coloring monsters like I do!

I just added a new Dinosaurs Coloring set!

Just Color Dinosaurs

Remember, if you want to make a mini coloring book, you can always scale down PDF files! If you have any problems downloading or printing these or other PDF files, see troubleshooting tips here.

Lapbooks ~ Dinosaurs

IMG_5491_thumb22 copyPac Man completed his dinosaur Lapbook recently, he did it along side of Krash’s Dino Tot Pack. It was fun to teach him, and learn alongside of him! We used these 2 books; What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs?, and God Created the Dinosaurs of the World (Sticker and Coloring Book) as our guides for learning.

IMG_5495_thumb18 copy

 

The entire lapbook was from Homeschool Share and I am ever so thankful for the awesome templa

tes and information provided there for free! We didn’t use all of the templates they provided and did a bit of a modified lapbook. We learned SO much though, it was wonderful!
