Read to Me
Our main book of the week was My Blue Boat by Chris Demarest.
Alphabet Art- Bubbly Blue B
B Pattern (I used the large capital B)
blue paint & paint brush
Simon painted the B blue. After it was dry, I cut it out and covered it in rubber cement. I put a piece of bubble wrap on top and cut around it to meet the B shape.
Lessons & Lapbook
Simon stamped the inside of his folder with a sailboat stamp.
After Simon painted his blue B, he had extra paint…so I gave him a piece of paper. He filled it up with "ocean" so I decided to find him a sailboat to paint and add to the sea. He also did a watercolor picture
Let's Make a Memory ~ Ice Boats!
This is cheap, easy, and loads of fun for your preschooler. Just get a freezable container, fill it with food colored water, put foil on top, pop a popsicle in, and freeze. The next day, pop the mold out, add a fun foam sail, and you've got an ice boat!

- sailboat stamp (I found mine at Hobby Lobby with 3 other stamps for .99) & ink pad
- food coloring (ice boats)
