Vegetables! Vegetables are a favorite in our house, most likely due to the large backyard garden. So, it was fun to put together the lesson plans for learning the letter V. We did a few printables that you'll find here: Homeschool Creations Gardening Pack. We started by cutting/sorting/gluing flowers and vegetables into the right columns.
The Amazing Action Alphabet to learn the letter V. I've been very impressed with this alphabet learning curriculum. We only have 3 letters of the alphabet left to learn and everyone is retaining the information. We're using their mini books to read and everyone is being successful! "C", now 39 months, can sound out any short vowel word and does so with great enthusiasm. The twins were super funny when we were reading the "V Book" today and they were ready to sound out a word - I teach them to finger tap the sounds - and I didn't have my hand up and "ready" so they were waiting on me..."Come on Miss Amanda!". It cracks me up :). Finger tapping involves touching your pointer finger to your thumb for the first sound, your middle finger to your thumb for the second sound, and so on down the line. We tap it faster and faster until we can slide our thumb along all of the sounds to read the word.
TouchMath curriculum. I am also very impressed with this pre-k curriculum focusing on the introduction of math concepts. I look forward to finishing the pre-k curriculum next fall in Preschool B and possibly moving on to the Kindergarten curriculum. I didn't start this curriculum until December of this year so we won't get to finish, but Preschool A in the fall will start at the beginning and be able to complete the whole curriculum within the year.
