Well, I had planned on showing you our "Human Body" Theme next, but we have been on that theme for like three weeks and the photos aren't quite ready. Having a baby changed our immediate priorities around a little. ;) But I feel like we are in a groove and we are ready for a new lesson plan. I've waited to do "Fall" activities...cause well, in SoFlo it just hasn't felt like Fall. But pretty soon, in the rest of the country, Fall will be over and these activities may be irrelevant.
There's not really any photos for this post, because we haven't completed this lesson plan yet, and most of the activities are pretty self explanatory. But I wanted to get it posted while it was still Fall in the rest of the country!
Letters of the Week: A and F
Songs: 1 Little, 2 Little, 3 Little Leaves...., ABC phonics song.
Books: Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert; When Autumn Falls by Kelli Nidey; Apple Farmer Annie by Monica Wellington
*ABC phonics song goes like this: "A is for Apple, Ahh Ahh Apple. B is for Baby, Bbb Bbb Baby, etc." You just sing words for the letter, emphasizing the sound of the letter.
Letters of the Week Coloring (on the chalkboard) ---> Alphabet, Art
Upper Case/Lower Case Matching Game ---> Alphabet, Small Motor
Lower Case Letters are new for my daughter, so we will start off this game really simple. I'll probably just have two different letters out at a time to introduce the concept to her. I'll show her what the lower case letters look like first, then see if she can match them.

Pattern Matching ---> Math
I made a felt board by just wrapping an old canvas in some felt. I cut out some felt circles and drew different patterns on each one and cut them in half. I mixed them up and let Adoration try to match them. She did this at first, but then just ended up playing with them after she matched them. (Don't force activities. It's okay if they explore them in different ways than you intended.)
