This week we rowed the book “Make Way for Ducklings”. I actually got the Scholastic video of the book being read with the illustrations, for the kids to watch this week. It was nice to be able to change it up a little bit.
I found these duck puppets at picklebums.com that I printed off for Alexa to play with. She LOVED them!
We focused on the letter D this week, for Duck
D is for Duck
Alexa practiced writing the letter D for the first time. She preferred for me to write the letter lightly on the paper, and then to copy over it, so that’s what I did for the first several ones. Then I had her write it on her own. She did amazing.
Letter Dd Puzzle
Alexa enjoys the P is for Princess puzzle from confessions on a regular basis, so I went ahead and printed off the 6-piece letter D puzzle from Confessions of a Homeschooler’s blog.
Lexie completed the Melissa and Doug Alphabet Train puzzle (totally on her own)…. three different times one morning! She was very proud of herself.
I also printed this page from Confession’s blog. These are always Lexie’s favorites.
Duck Paper Craft DLTK has these amazing paper animal crafts, that Alexa loves. We did the duck one for this unit. Alexa does not like my help with these. She cuts, glues, and assembles completely on her own. By the way, this duck came with wings, but somewhere along the way we lost them.
I kept this unit pretty simple, because we had a pretty busy week, but I did what we could, and Alexa liked it, which was good enough for me.
Next week we will be working on Thanksgiving crafts and activities and then we will be taking several weeks off as we travel and celebrate the holidays a bit.
