Letter E

Welcome to another busy week of Preschool!

This week The Little Princess learned all about the letter "E"
 This week we learned about the letters Ee, the number 5, and triangles. Our theme was eggs, and we learned that the yellow part of an egg is called the yolk. Our Bible verse was "Every knee will bow before me: every tongue will acknowledge God." Romans 14:11

For books this week, we continues reading Matthew ABC by Peter Catalanotto and Ten, Nine, Eight by Molly Bang. We looked at a few egg books including, Hurry, Hurry by Eve Bunting and The Cow that Laid an Egg by Andy Cutbill. We also read a few elephant books including Elephants Cannot Dance by Mo Willems and Elephants on Board by Suse MacDonald.

We began our week by making colored eggs for our E page using markers and water on coffee filters. The Little Princess really went to town coloring the coffee filters and was amazed to see the colors run together when we added the water. She made three in all and chose her favorite to add to her Learning Book. 

She also painted her E's as usual. She is really starting to pay attention to where she puts each color, not just glob it all together like she was doing just a few weeks ago.

Here is her finished masterpieces.

This week we also learned about the number five. She painted her 5 and added it to her Learning Book.

We also learned that we have five fingers on each hand. I traced her hand and cut it out for her and she glued it onto her Learning page.

She had a lot of fun putting her hand on top of the traced hand. She also had each of us do it to see if her hand matched any of our hands. I love when she takes investigative initiative like that!

We also worked on our upper and lower case letters to add to the kitchen wall. She made a capital letter Elephant.

And a lower case e hatching from an egg. 

My kitchen is getting so colorful!

This week was a shape week, so we learned about triangles. We talked about how triangles have three sides and three corners or angles. While she was painting her triangle to add to her Learning Book, we had a very in depth conversation about Telly Monster from Sesame Street whose favorite shape is a triangle!

She also made a penguin out of triangles. We happened to be visiting my in-laws out of state at the time and brought some school work with us. This was the only thing we did while we were there though, It was just too much fun playing with Nana and Grampy!

 Eventually, everything was added to her Learning Book.

 My plan was to have a special snack of Deviled Eggs this week, but we never got around to it. After all, we were too busy playing at Nana's house. I don't think my picky Princess would have eaten them anyway. (Cue the trumpet. Whomp, whomp, whomp.)

 Until next time!
