J is simply THRILLED to be doing preschool at home this year. He gets to do school JUST like the big boys. I'm not doing anything major with him as he's really not ready for a lot of it. He knows his letters, numbers, shapes & colors already. He needs lots of work on fine motor skills & writing skills but I figure he's four. We've got plenty of time. Now we're just having fun.
I'm loosely using Letter of the Week with ideas throw in from No Time for Flashcards & 1+1+1=1 Tot School as well as some workbooks from Rod & Staff publishing (pre-writing skills - trace the line things - he loves it!)
Over at No Time for Flashcards I read about using store bought cookie dough to reinforce letters. She used them on the letter 'c' - you know, "C is for Cookie, that's good enough for me." Sing with me now! Can't you just picture Cookie Monster singing that song?
This was our first week of school & our letter is actually 'A' but I went for the cookie dough anyway. What kid doesn't love cookies?? So we made 'A' cookies. I think J approves.
