Monday - Literacy
Letter Y Tracing Page
Again we used the wonderful printable from Kid's Learning Station.
Y is for Yellow - Scissor Skills
Letter Y Beginning Sounds
And this one comes from the Education website.
Tuesday - Math and Cognitive Skills
We love these worksheets from 1+1+1=1.
Y is for Year
First we had a small lesson in reading a calendar. We talked about how long a year is, by singing the month song that she learned in preschool. It basically names the months of the year to the tune of Michael Finnegan. Here is a similar version to the one we sing that I found on You Tube. We talked about what the current date and year are, and worked on number recognition. Then I had her order the pictures from youngest to oldest, and glue them over the appropriate year they were taken.
(We had a busy week, and decided to skip the social studies and social skills portion of our Y unit.)
Y is for Yarn - Craft
I printed this coloring page from Twisty Noodle onto cardstock. Then Honey Pot worked on her scissor skills to cut small pieces of yarn in the colors of her choice.
Then she glued them onto her paper.
And glued on googly eyes.
Little M&M made one too!
Here are the finished versions!
Thursday - Sensory + Music
Y is for Yellow - Making Y's with Various Materials - Sensory
As with last week, I gathered several materials with which Honey Pot could create Y's. This time I made them all yellow to help tie into our Y week.
Y is for Yodeling
We briefly listened to videos of yodeling on You Tube, mainly the video from The Sound of Music.
Friday - Science or Other
Y is for Yoga - Other
This is our first week without a science experiment, because I wanted to do something a little different for Y week: yoga! Honey Pot had done this several times in her preschool during the year. So I started off asking her what she remembered from there. She showed me a few poses. Then we tried to do some from this worksheet. I printed it from here, but I do not know from which site it originates.
I was busy attempting the poses along with her, so I didn't shoot many pictures. But here are a few. I really enjoyed this and I know she did too. We may do this more often!
The Lion. "Roar!"
