Below is a list with our full lesson plans.
Lesson Plan: The lesson plan includes all the lessons for the week, as well as optional ideas. Items following the lesson plan are just the printables or links to websites we used to teach these plans. (Please note: On top of our lesson plan we are reading books daily that relate to our theme throughout the week.)
Memory Verse: This memory card is for daily use during our calendar time. You can learn more about calendar time at 1+1+1=1 or Homeschool Creations. Our weekly devotional is an object lesson that will help your child apply the meaning of the verse to them.
Family Spelling Match- For this activity you will write out family names (Mommy, Daddy, siblings names, etc.) on separate sheets of paper or index cards. Then have your child use letter tiles or scrabble pieces to copy the spelling. If you do not have either of those tools you can print some at one of the following websites:
Letter Tiles will be used often, so we suggest printing it on cardstock and laminating them for durability. Also, you will want to have at least 2 copies of the lowercase letters.
Family Size Sort- This activity can be varied depending on your child’s skill level. For example you can sort into 2 or 3 piles (Big & Small or Big, Medium & Small).
My Daily Home Routine- If you have an opportunity to take pictures of your child doing their daily routine (or acting it out) then make sure you have your pictures printed and ready to sequence for this activity. If not, no worries we found something you can use. (Take Note: The link is to a website in the UK, so spellings could vary.)
Mommy/Baby Letter Match- Use letter tiles,scrabble pieces, or the same document from Family Letter Matching. Have your child match the capital (Mommy or Big) letter to the lowercase (Baby or Small) letter.
How Many Windows?- The activity comes in color or black & white depending on how much ink you would like to use. We will be posting a video on Facebook of it in action. The counting cards is another document that may be used often, so we suggest printing it on cardstock and laminating it for durability. Of course a deck of cards could be used in place of the counting cards.
Neighborhood Walk with Bingo Card- (Not all images are seen in picture below.) We used this activity as we went on our field trip this week.
Family Beginning Writing- Not all tots will be ready for this, so don’t stress if yours has difficulty. I helped my son trace the lines, and then just let him go. He was all over the place, but he was still working on fine motor development. You can use this document over and over again if you laminate it and then have you child write with dry erase markers.
My Neighborhood Coloring Book- Use this book to review colors with your child, as you talk about the things in their neighborhood.
