Preschool With Bo Unit 10: Review Letters E-H, Joshua

Welcome to another quick update of Little Hands to Heaven ~ Unit 10! Yay for another review week! (Means we are plugging along!) This week, we read how Joshua led the Israelites through the wilderness for 40 years, and were now ready to enter the Promised Land, about Rahab, and how the walls around Jericho were strong, but not stronger than God!

Along with swatting letters and shapes, we crossed the Jordan River on dry land, "Marched Around Jericho" with the Singing Bible, made a cookie wall that we knocked down, and made a sun catcher to remember when the sun stood still for Joshua and the Israelites.

Bo also learned how to ride a bike this week! He was cruising around so well on his Strider bike, that Luke put him on a bike with pedals and has been taking him for bike rides. Bo still loves his blue Strider and would rather ride it, but the bike with pedals he's been riding is old and a pedal keeps falling off, so he doesn't like that. We're pretty excited that he can ride a bike, though. :D

I'm working on getting caught up with these quick (but less detailed) updates.  See our preschool curriculum and plans and a detailed Week 1 to see more details on what we are doing.

Preschool With Bo Unit 9: Letter H, 10 Commandments

Welcome to a quick update of Little Hands to Heaven ~ Unit 9!

Key ideas this week include: the Ten Commandments (with emphasis on the 1st Commandment), the tabernacle, the 12 spies, and Israel's punishment for not trusting God.

Our songs this week were "Ten Commandments" and "Forty Years You'll Go."

This week, Bo did a watercolor resist for the letter Hh, did "H is for helping" in Big Thoughts, did the Hide-and-Seek H (and boy, did he ever try hard to get a straight line!), put stickers on a hand drawn letter H, counted to 10 with stickers (and fingers!), read stories, did Animal ABCs, and more.

Trident Case {Review}

Trident Case Review
I've been using the Cyclops Case for Apple iPhone 5/5S by Trident Case for the past month. Admittedly, I wanted to review this case because I thought it was prettier than my dull black case that hides my pretty white phone, and because it comes with a lanyard loop and has an anti-skid surface.

Preschool with Bo: Good Night Gorilla, Letter Gg

~Bo is 3 years, 4 months~

Good Night Gorilla, is a selection from Sonlight P 3/4. Bo enjoyed listening to the video of the story on my phone.

Zoo Book

We made a Zoo Book with the animals I printed from Homeschool Share's Good Night Gorilla printables.

Bo matched each zoo animal to the color of their cage in the book. Then matched up the correct keys. I punched holes and tied it together with yarn to make a book.

The rest of our unit was devoted to Animal ABCs and making a fun snack.

G is for Gorilla

Gorilla Picture Study

Note the orange jersey. It is Malachi's, but Bo wouldn't part with it, so Luke brought him home a blue jersey (his favorite color) and also a white jersey. And that is all I can get him to wear, it seems! He hardly lets me take it off him to wash it!

Gorilla Shapes

Dot Paint the Gs

Bo can't say the /g/ sound, which is made in the throat, so I am having him cough and feel his throat so he can feel where the /g/ sound comes from. (He says /d/.)

Tablet Teachables {Alphabet Hunt} ~ Letter G.

Count with Me! Gorilla Numbers

Bo counted with chocolate chips ~ one chip for each correct number. (He made it to nine.)

Note the Sensational Kids T-Shirt - he let me put it on him since he had speech that day. :)

Make a Memory

Campfire Banana Boats ~ chocolate chips and mini marshmallows stuffed in a banana and roasted. They were surprisingly good. (I had a bite or two).

We also made Banana Scented Edible Play Dough and Mini Banana Cream Pies. . .

and made a Good Night Gorilla Muffin Tin.
