The Foot Book

The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss!


We read our book of the week at least once a day. The Five in a Row curriculum‘s premise is that you should read the same children’s book to your child for five days in a row, all week. We have Before Five in a Row, and are reading through some of the books in there and also picking books according to our season, theme, or interest.  The Foot Book is not in the curriculum, but it was perfect for our F is for Foot theme!   (Homeschool Creations and Homeschool Share have many printable resources for the Five in a Row series.)

Tracing Feet

John loved tracing his feet and his baby sister’s too; he insisted that we trace “cow’s” feet (his inseparable companion):


We measured and discovered that Daddy’s feet are biggest and May’s are the smallest!


Mini Book

Here is an adorable FOOTball book from Cassie at 3dinosaurs.  We printed a lot of her Tot Football Pack, which John enjoyed last week for the Superbowl and this week for Foot week!



John had a blast with this piece of styrofoam (I am beginning to save everything — there are so many uses for simple throw-away objects!)  I hot-glue-gunned (that is a technical term) together two sets of laminated body part vocabulary from 1+1+1=1’s Tot School ABCs from the Letter F.  And I put a toothpick in the middle, so he could poke holes in the styrofoam.  He loved this.
