Lindsay's Preschool Lessons - April 12 - 16, 2010
I found the coolest mini-unit study on Currclick.com called From Caterpillar to Butterfly. It's only $1.99, and worth every penny!! (No, I'm not a paid advertiser, but I when I like something I let people know about it!) :)
I had been waiting to start this particular unit because I really wanted to find my Very Hungry Caterpillar book from a box that has been missing since our move. Well...the VERY day that I gave up all hope of finding my own copy, and reluctantly decided to purchase another one, I went to our homeschool group's monthly meeting where we were having a Book Swap. And the very book I needed was on a table labled "FREE"!!!! Can you believe my luck? I mean, it's not like the book would have broken the bank anyway, but still! I never get this lucky! I was really excited!! Ok, so it doesn't take much to excite me. :) Moving on...
We started with B is for Butterfly. Then moved on to C is for Caterpillar. We are now going over the #7, and will move on to the Life Cycle of a Butterfly, Nutrition, Mazes, and Sequencing. The booklet I downloaded also includes Narration Ideas for The Very Hungry Caterpillar, so that she can explain different concepts to me in different ways, using different mediums like play-doh, crayons, etc.
There are loads of other activities that we have planned that are outlined in the ebook, but I wouldn't feel right posting them on here since they're not my ideas. :) I urge you to get this and try it out. It's small, so it's great for a mini-unit for the week. :)
Hope everyone is having a great week!! :)
