Read to Me
Our main book was Mrs. Wishy Washy's Farm by Joy Cowley; we spent two weeks on this unit because there were too many fun things for just one week!
Alphabet Art- Watermelon W
Paint the W pink. Set aside to dry. Add stickers.
This was not my original plan. The original plan was to paint the W pink and add watermelon seeds (cute!), but I forgot to save the seeds from the watermelon we had, so I had to figure out something else.
Lessons & Lapbook
There are two different things to finger paint; Simon was so happy!
I put a back pocket on the lapbook to hold all sorts of goodies– the animals for hiding, a Mrs. Wishy Washy magnet page, and the w words for "Wonderful World"
Let's Make a Memory ~ Wishy Washy!
This is your child's chance to pretend to be just like Mrs. Wishy Washy!
I super highly recommend that you use a vinyl tablecloth for this. I didn't think about grabbing mine out of our camping gear, and I wish I would have!
You just mix up some chocolate pudding with your preschooler, get out some plastic animals, and let your kiddo go for it; he will probably know exactly what to do without any instruction. Simon was quite content and really rolled the animals around in the mud.
You know what comes after the mud, right?
