A is for Apple, Again

We had a pretty good first week focusing on apples and the letter A. I followed MBS’s lead, encouraging but not pushing. He didn’t want to do any of the line or letter tracing activities, and he wasn’t too enthused about the counting activities but did do a few with me. I was impressed with how well he did on the size sorting, pattern finishing, and shape matching activities– though he got completely goofy while doing them.

MBS’s favorite activity all week long was cutting and gluing, while doing an “A” craft with me or making his own “creatures”, and I think my favorite part was when we went on a hike at Tolmie State Park on Ryan’s day off. We also ate apples, drank apple juice, made an apple dessert (which he wouldn’t eat), and picked apples in our orchard.

I believe all of the printouts we used this week were from Confessions of a Homeschooler. We did an apple paper plate craft that I’ve seen lots of places, made an Apatosaurus out of a paper plate, made an apple tree, and stacked 10 Apples on Top.

  1. Isn’t it funny how you will fix something for your little one, thinking they’ll love it, then they end up turning their nose up at it? Happens to me all the time!

    Love your activities for the letter A. 🙂

  2. The apple tree with the pom poms turned out so cute. We did the ‘apples up on top’ this week with our co-op and they loved it. 🙂

    Thanks for joining up with us and sharing!

  3. I’m doing a little preschool co-op with three other moms, and when it was my week to teach we focused on the letter A and apples. It was so much fun! There are so many good ideas out there!
