Read to Me
Our main book of the week was Three Little Kittens by Paul Galdone.
Alphabet Art – Kissing K
K Pattern (large capital K)
Lips Stamp & Red Inkpad OR lipstick
Let your child stamp red lips on the K pattern (or put lipstick on your child and let her kiss the pattern). Each time Simon stamped the K with the lips we said, "/k/…/k/…kiss!"
Lessons & Lapbook
I used the lessons & lapbook for Three Little Kittens from Homeschool Share. I also used some of the K printables from the Alphabet Notebook page at Homeschool Share. We also had a Koala cut/paste activity from a Kumon book that we put on the back of the folder.
Simon's favorite part of the unit was singing the song while washing and hanging his mittens out to dry; they are now safely stored in a plastic bag in his lapbook. (We soiled them with coffee grounds and jam.)
Let's Make a Memory! ~ Three Little Kittens Lunch
I made Simon a kitten sandwich and purchased a little pie for him, so he could have some pie (insert nursery rhyme music).
I cut a circle from a piece of bread with a large cup then I cut out two triangles for ears. I "frosted" the bread with some cream cheese. I added two olive slices for eyes, a cheese triangle nose, and some carrot stick whiskers. Easy (and yes, cheesy).
Let's Make Another Memory! ~ "Kite" Flying
Just buy a helium balloon and add lots and lots of string so your student can fly it; a guaranteed hit!
