Letter Dd

Welcome to another week of Preschool! This week we focused on flowers. Let's begin with The Little Princess's Learning Poster.

Our theme this week was, as I said, flowers. We also learned about roots and how roots help the flowers to drink. Our Bible verse was Luke 6:31 "Do to others as you would have them do to you."
Every week we go to the library and check out a bunch of books on our theme and letter crafts. I just recently realized I have not been including these books in my posts. I will be including them from now on. This week's books were: Daisy Head Maisy by Dr. Seuss, Exploring Flowers by Kristin Sterling, Ava's Poppy by Marcus Pfister, How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food by Jane Yolen, Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs by Mo Willems, and Ten Terrible Dinosaurs by Paul Stickland. We also have been reading Matthew ABC by Peter Catalanotto and Ten, Nine, Eight by Molly Bang. These two books we'll keep for a few weeks as they deal with the entire alphabet and numbers.

This weeks theme craft was making a daisy out of cotton swabs. First, The Little Princess glued the stem, leaves and yellow center to the construction paper. She chose black paper which surprised me, though I think it made the daisy pop. Next, she used white glue and dipped both ends of the cotton swab into the glue and then placed them all around the yellow center.

And here is her finished product. 

We also worked with the letter Dd this week. She made a capital letter D dinosaur.

 And a lower case d daisy.

But I will warn you to pay special attention to your lower case d's. the same shape, from different placements is a lower case q,p,b, and d. Even knowing this, I still directed her to make her d wrong the first time.

 Here they are, hanging in the kitchen.

The Little Princess also painted her upper and lower case Dd's to add to her learning book.

 For her Dd learning page, she made daisy prints. She used an empty 20 ounce soda bottle and dipped the bottom into white paint and stamped it onto her paper to form the daisy petals. Then, when it was dry, she used the cap from the bottle to stamp the yellow centers. She was quite pleased with the outcome!

Here is the finished project.

This week we worked with the number 4. This week we had some family fun with her number four. Since there are four of us in our family we used four silly faces for her learning book.

This week she also worked with he color orange. First she finger painted with orange paint.

She then glued a bunch of orange pictures from magazines onto her paper. 

Finally, this week, we made flower shaped Rice Krispy Treats. Well, that was the plan anyway. However, after the treats were made and we went to cut out the shapes I could not find my flower shaped cookie cutter. So, instead, we made flower petals (aka, hearts).
Until next time!
