The colors on the vocab cards for our India theme board really struck me. How vibrant! Kylie particularly enjoyed learning the word monsoon. We live in California and have been in the midst of a terrible drought since before she was born. "Momma, that sounds like they would need a really big umbrella!"
Our wake up, warm up language lessons this week focused on reviewing letter sounds. We played this cute elephant race game and reviewed A-E sounds on our first day, and F-J sounds on our second day. I dare you to name me a preschooler that doesn't love a game with a spinner!
Our wake up, warm up math lessons continued with even longer patterns.
All aboard the letter sound train! We met Krishna and Lakshmi this week. "Keys are important luggage," Kylie noted.
I loved this math exercise! I asked Kylie to make patterns with our letter sound train friends and she had so much fun! I could see the wheels turning in her brain as she said "pink Lakshmi, orange Laskimi, pink Lakshmi." Patterns are the building blocks to early math literacy. It may seem like our children are just making "pink, orange, pink" patterns, but soon that will turn into skip counting, counting coins to make dollar bills, and measuring in inches and feet!
Our cooking activity this week was delicious! One of my favorite things about homeschooling and Montessori learning is having the ability to extend the lesson when something strikes your little learner. After smelling the cardamon, Kylie was very interested in smelling other India spices. We smelled curry, garam masalla, turmeric, and coriander.
We love circle time songs that get us moving!
This is my kind of word search!
