Here is what we’ve been doing this week. Sorry the post is a little late (again!) but we had some computer issues! Let us know what you think. We hope by providing these materials to you free of charge, it will make your life easier!
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.)
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.
Beginning Writing-Nurse to Patient- For those tots that may struggle with following the lines, we have added a simpler writing activity. The 2nd activity has no lines (just a gray path), so all your child has to do is connect the Santa to the sleigh, any way they can. You can use this document over and over again if you laminate it and then have you child write with dry erase markers. (Black dry erase wipes off easier than color ones.)
Measure the Patient activity- In this activity your child will use a number ruler to measure patients. This activity will also work on counting skills.
Doctor/Nurse Pretend Play-Help your child learn about these important roles through pretend play. If you don’t have a costume for a doctor or nurse you can make one with these things:
- A white men’s dress shirt
- travel first aid kit ($.99 at most drug stores)
- a tie
- a note pad and pen
- empty medicine bottles
The shirt is a lab coat, the tie makes you a professional! You can put the first aid items, the notepad, and the medicine bottles in a an old purse or carry-on and your kiddo has an instant doctors bag!
Beginning Spelling: Doctor Spelling Puzzle-This activity will help your child work on letter sounds and beginning spelling concepts.
Emergency Game– This activity will help your child with counting skills.
Germ Experiment/Hand Washing– This activity will help your child begin to understand the concept of germs and hygiene as well as reinforcing the importance of hand washing.
Toothbrush Letter Recognition Game- Reinforces letter recognition, or beginning sounds depending upon play. Draw the letters of the alphabet on piece on some construction paper and let your child trace over each letter with a toothbrush. This will also work on fine-motor skills and beginning writing.
Toothbrush Shape Match Game– This activity will reinforce or help teach your child shapes.
Label Parts of Mouth/Tooth brushing Activity– This activity will teach your child to label and identify the parts of the mouth. It will also help your child develop personal hygiene routines and habits. You can use this mouth diagram, from homeschoolshare.com and these labels to go over the parts of the mouth.
This week we also played at “Cover the Boo-Boo Game” for our family night.
We also worked on what “Makes our teeth Happy, Makes our teeth Sad?” craft.
