F week: plans

We're back from Utah. We had a great trip and had fun with family and friends. Now I have to get back to "normal" life...preschool, singing time, cleaning my house, etc. And I guess I better start potty training now that Connor's 3. If anyone wants to leave any potty training advice as a comment I welcome it. I haven't really researched and I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm giving myself this week to make a plan and then next Monday we start!

Here are the plans for F week:

word cards: fish, frog, feet, funny, fall
A Fly and a Flea in a Flue

A fly and a flea in a flue
Were imprisoned, so what could they do?
Said the fly, "Let us flee!"
"Let us fly!" said the flea,
And they flew through a flaw in the flue.

Monday (social studies/emotions): feelings. I have a couple of picture books that discuss feelings. We'll read these and talk about feelings.

Tuesday (math): math with frogs. We'll do counting, adding, and subtracting with frogs. Then we'll play "frogs in the grass!" if it's warm enough outside.

Wednesday (scriptures/gospel): Loaves & Fishes. Connor's Nursery lesson today (taught by Alan) was about the scriptures and he learned that there are stories about Jesus and told by Jesus in the scriptures. We'll read the story of the miracle of the loaves and fishes and "act it out" with his flannel board book. We'll review the story of the Good Samaritan that he learend in Nursery.

Thursday (movement/activity): fruit. We'll try a couple of different kinds of fruit for snack. And we'll play Follow the Leader.

Friday (art project): froot loop sand. We'll make froot loop sand (or probably fruity cheerio sand since we have fruity cheerios) and then make a picture with it. Wherever we stick the glue, the froot loop sand will stick and make a colorful design on the paper.

Other F words that might come up or spark ideas for activities: farm animals, fairy tales, fall, families, farmers market, fire safety, friendship.

I have a bucket of frog counters if you'd like to borrow them.
