I have designated activities for each day of the week.
Monday: Letter of the week (during school year)
Tuesday: Music Time
The World Around Us
Friday: Movie/Pizza & Baking (rotated
Letter of the week: A new letter is introduced weekly and the State that begins with
the letter. We also search inside and outside for anything that starts with the letter. ex: toys, colors, names, words, plants, etc.
Theme day: To start the week off during the summer I introduce the theme
for the week. Our theme then follows the week activities. Examples of our themes are; Space, Ocean, Beaches, Birds & Butterflies,
Science, Camping, National Parks etc.
Gardening: We start in early spring
by planting seeds and then transplanting seedlings for the garden. The children help from day one and enjoy the end result
of delicious home grown fruits and vegetables. Including taking home canned goods in the fall.
Day: I have hired a Licensed Music Therapist that comes in weekly for 30 minutes. She incorporates colors, letters
and numbers along with a large selection of musical instruments, songs and games.
Our weekly craft day includes everything from finger painting, chalk drawings, nature crafts, crafts kits and seasonal/holiday
Computer: I use Jump Start programs for Preschool-2nd Grade. The
children start by learning how to use the mouse by clicking on colors, numbers and letters then graduate to using the
keyboard to form words and working on math skills.
Baking: Every other Friday we watch a Disney Movie and eat homemade pizzas. On the opposite Friday
we bake anything from cookies, cupcakes, monkey bread to jello and pudding.
