Memory verse for the week: “Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.” Psalm 56:3 This week’s memory verse song.
New Toy: I’m leaving out a coloring book and crayons. I’m not sure how he’ll do with the crayons, but he LOVES to color!
Mystery Box Items (choose 5 – one for each day): whisk, wheel, wool, wrench, woman, things that are white
Daily Story/Activity: (This is what we do to start our “learning time” each day) Tell and act out the story of Jonah and the whale.
Sing a couple songs, look at letter of the week. 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, 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, dig in the garden
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 starting to give him two letters at a time – last week’s and the new one.) We will look at the new toys set out and play with them together.
Tuesday – Wade in the creek near our house.
Wednesday – Go for a walk and hunt for spider webs.
Thursday – Play What to Wear? Samuel has been super interested in trying to dress and undress himself. I plan on setting out some clothes that are a size or two too big so he can practice trying to put them on and take them off.
Friday – Paint the windows with watercolor paints. We have a big window on one of our doors that he can reach. I’ll let him paint on it with his watercolors. Cleanup is really easy. 🙂
Wash – Anything! The car, his toys, you name it.
Water Play – Get a big tub or bowl full of water and let Samuel have fun outside or inside.
