So, as you probably didn't notice, I'm late as usual with posting what we're up to, and I actually have a good reason this time. I've been sick, and I'm not going any further than that because it was really unpleasant. We'll just combine the last 2 weeks work in to 1 post, and then we'll hope that next week I can post something from this week. And if you feel dizzy from that last sentence, you're not the only one.
This week's goals:
Bible Theme/Story: Thank you, God, for making me
Bible Verse: Psalm 139:14
Books: Wheels on the Bus, What Do You Do with a Grumpy Kangaroo?, Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom, My First Body Board Book, Put Me In The Zoo
Color: Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Purple
Shapes: Circle, Line, Square, Triangle
Information: First, middle, and last name
Self-Care and Manners: Dress self and name clothing
Fine Motor Skill: String Beads
Gross Motor Skill: Throw a bean bag into a goal of some sort
For the Bible Theme/Story we read about creation again and talked about God making each person to live for Him and bring Him glory. We made a collage of pictures from magazines of people from all different races. We even found a picture of a boy in a wheelchair, which Isaiah seemed to enjoy. I didn't do the worksheets from the curriculum, because quite honestly, Isaiah doesn't like to color, so only today did I think of an alternative that I'll post about later.
Isaiah still enjoyed his Wheels on the Bus app very much. He's figured out how to switch the languages, so we'll often hear German, Spanish, French or Italian floating through the house.
To talk about feelings I cut out the emotions printables and laminated them. I had the great idea that I would them glue them to popsicle sticks with the word written on there. Lamination and glue don't get along. Now I know.
We did several activities with Put Me In The Zoo which we actually own, thank goodness.
I drew an outline of what was supposed to be the animal from the book and had the kids draw dots like his spots.
Then Isaiah actually tried to write! I was so excited! You can't see it clearly here, but he was trying to hold the marker in a very correct position and everything.
Sister got in on the action, too. Yes, these are washable.
Next we played with poms in lots of different ways always talking about the colors. Isaiah LOVES glue, so he enjoyed gluing the poms to a plate. We also practiced throwing them into a big bowl and putting them in little bowls.
Isaiah later asked me to help him draw Buzz Lightyear who then became Daddy. I'm just excited that he wanted to draw!
We've started working on some super secret Valentine cards. He did a great job with his cutting, which we hadn't tried in a while.
Then we tore some paper for our cards, and I had him drop the pieces in the bag to work on fine motor and following directions. It also helped him stretch to the left, which is something good for his PT.
And we're in the process of celebrating his birthday for a little while, so I can't wait to share about that next week! Unless of course, I'm late, as usual.
