Wow, it’s been a while. With Christmas and sick family members, I’m finally getting back on track with daily plans for Samuel.
Letter of the week: R
Memory verse for the week: “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!’” Philippians 4:4. Periodically throughout the day, we will listen to various songs on this verse like this one.
New Toy: I’ll switch out toys from his toy store, but I will make sure to set out his road.
Mystery Box Items (choose 5 – one for each day): ribbon, rat, radish, rocks, red (things), rag, rice, rattle, rabbit, rainbow, rectangle, ruler
Daily Story/Activity: (This is what we do to start our “learning time” each day) Tell the story of the parting of the Red Sea while using Samuel’s felt book.
sing a couple songs, look at letter of the day. Set aside aprox. 15 mins to read as many books as Samuel wants. After doing daily activities, if Samuel needs other things to do, here are some options:
Go for a walk, blow bubbles, color in coloring book, play dough, finger paint, water play, sing “Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes”, stack pots and pans or bowls, play with balls, finger painting, water painting, get out sensory tub
Monday – LeapFrog Fridge Phonics (each week I will put a different letter in the fridge phonics toy. I don’t usually like electronic toys, but Samuel loves putting the letter in this one and pressing the button. I’m only giving him one letter at a time right now.) We will look at the new toys set out and play with them together.
Tuesday – Roll a ball and knock over cups
Wednesday – Use finger paints to make rainbows. (This will be Samuel’s first experience with finger paint. I think it will be fun!)
Thursday – Read books (maybe even go to the library to read!!)
Friday – Play Rhythm instruments in the rhythm band
*If it rains this week, be sure and go for a walk in the rain. Take the umbrella and follow up with a warm bath and nap when we get home. 🙂
