Hh for Hippopotamus from Confessions of a Homeschooler...
Play-doh page and letter H cookie cutter from this set:
Letter h magnet page from Making Learning Fun.
This week we used pennies to fill it in.
She is really enjoying our Follow-the-Dots Stamps…
And she is still using our Purpllinker with each new letter..
Here is a fun new count and sort activity I found this summer for her.
She sorted the small houses by color first.
This was a great chance to go over beginning sounds in the color words.
She also looked through the color words for letters she recognized.
After that she sorted out these disks by color and number.
She needed a little help with a couple of numbers,
but has really improved in her number recognition skills!
She spent a lot of time this week, coloring horses (her favorite animal!)
Here is her letter of the week craft: H for horse.
She has been working through the workbook
Hands-On Thinking Skills, which we love.
This book has great pre-math concepts such as: forming/following sequences and patterns,
classifying objects and groups, finding similarities and differences.
We use a few different sets of manipulative's including interlocking cubes,
pattern blocks, and attribute blocks.
We are still loving our Now I'm Reading A-Z books.
Here is a fun sticker activity with horses.
She played with this for hours this week!
My Grandmother gave me this wonderful doll/puppet set to go along with
“There Was An Old Lady”.
I really treasure this because it was something I remember her doing with me as a child.
The kids all love it too, and we all get quite animated
when we sing the song/tell the story!
These are the letter tile cards that go along with the story.
We used scrabble pieces this time.
She needed a lot of help with this activity because it was
transferring upper and lower case letters to each other.
She eventually gave up and just used dry erase marker to go over the words.
Still doing her Kumon maze book…
Building a house from our Shape Shuffle set…
And a fun build-as-you-go puzzle….
Hh: Smallest object and Hh letter hunt worksheets.
For Fun Friday we played Hip Hip Hooray!
which is a new family favorite.
It mixes charades, drawing, trivia, and action questions.
Lots of fun!
