Book of the week:
The Little Kitten by Phoebe and Judy Dunn
My son loves all of these books. The whole series is so wonderful. The photographs are stunning and they always have a cute and believable storyline about a young child and their journey with a lovable little animal. This book focused on a little girl and her little kitten named Pickle.
- I set a new Schleich kitten out in our sensory bin (which is below) and John slept with him every night.
- We made sure to read the book at least twice a day.
- We focused on vocabulary and manners in the book.
Bible verse of the week:
Be kind to one another. Ephesians 4:32
We had a lot of use out of this bible verse this week!
We use the ABC bible verse songs from Songs for Saplings. These songs are so catchy, beautiful, not “children’s music annoying,” and I find myself singing and learning and memorizing the bible verses along with John. Carisa at 1plus1plus1equals1 has made coordinating ABC Bible Verses posters which have really helped with his memorization as well.
We put up our bible verse, a Kk small poster from Tot School, a Kk sign from my Kindergarten teaching days, and these wonderful Montessori sandpaper letters. We put these up on the wall so he could feel the letter every morning and trace his fingers on the letter.
Stickers on his Letter K is for Kitten. This is a great way to learn “inside” and “outside” too — he kept joking that he was going to put a sticker outside the K — he thought it was a hoot.
