So I search the internet until I found what I was looking for...a curriculum based in scripture with sound teaching methods and activities. I purchased the Letters of the Week curriculum from Erica over at Confessions of a Homeschooler. I love that the package includes lesson plans, bible verses, and helps teach all the basics Wyatt needs to learn in a fun setting that generates PAPERS! (my son needs something to show off after working hard). The curriculum is geared towards 3-4 year olds just starting their educational journey. Lil' man has loved the activities and lesson we have done so far.
Do-A-Dot has been one of his favorites.
Plus he really enjoyed apple tasting and making homemade applesauce.
Lil' man is a budding Picasso, so the apple painting was right up his alley.
And counting he loves to help count things...I think this comes from counting cows regularly...for the longest time I didn't know if he would ever count pass 8 (that's the number of cows that go into one milk line at a time).
As we are wrapping up week 1, I began to get things together for next weeks lessons to ensure I was prepared. Next week our focus letter is the letter B and Erica had butterflies as the focus. Now I like butterflies well enough but I can promise you my 3 year old hard core cowboy is going to have some issues with studying butterflies ALL week. So I attempted to make a more cowboy friendly version of LOWC for the letter B.
While I didn't recreate activity (he will have to deal with some butterflies) I did recreate quite a few. So here you go...my Letters of the Week revamp...B is for Barns & Bulls!! This is my first "Mommy School" creation. (Please note that while I did create the worksheets myself this is not my original idea. Erica@ConfessionsofaHomeschooler created the lessons and ideas. I just recreated her format with clipart I purchased.)
So here is a peek at what the various worksheets look like and at the bottom of this post will be a link so you can download the pdfs.
Barns & Bulls Alphabet Practice
Capital & Lowercase Sorting
Sorting pieces (there is a set of capital B's as well in the pdf)
Counting Practice (you can use clip cards or print a set of number cards here)
How many Bulls? (Bull cards are in pdf. You can print number cards here)
Letter disk matching cards
Capital/Lowercase Matching Puzzle
The complete pdf file includes 27 pages! I hope you enjoy. Please be sure to leave a comment and let me know if you like or if there is something I should change. And remember I don't mind if you share but I spent a lot of time creating these so be sure to give the proper credit.
