Preschool ~ Insects

Our preschool theme this week was INSECTS. We started talking about the different features of insects (6 legs, 3 main body parts, sometimes wings and antennea) and talked about different insect species... Smiley is a HUGE science fan, so this was right up his alley. Plus, he likes anything creepy, crawly ;)

We read several fun insect books this week that we found at our local library and did lots of internet research as well. I am plan on covering different insects over the next couple of weeks. This week, we started learning about bees and will continue our study on bees this week. I started putting together a science folder for Smiley that I will hopefully be able to share next week :)

Smiley continues to love his ABC Reading Eggs, an online subscription that we purchased a few months ago. This week, he learned all about the -ee sound and words such as see and bee (perfect fit with out theme).

I was also able to buy "Hooked on Phonics: K-2nd grade" for an awesome price a few months ago, and we started reading a couple of stories this week (focusing on: cat, rat, fat, sat). He really enjoyed this and did very well.

Smiley likes one of our ipad kindergarten apps (TEACH ME Kindergarten) that has fun addition & subtraction math games. He does really well with this. Other than that, we haven't focused much on math lately (other than constantly counting stuff, of course).
