September Week 1

Lesson plans
Alphabet: Aa
Numbers: 1-5
Theme: Parts of the Body 
Bible: Genesis 1:1, God is Creator
Gross Motor: Hopping 
Fine Motor: Beading 


Alphabet:


As E would take an item out of the box I would give the name of the object while I emphasized the beginning sound. Ex: "That's an apple. /a/ /a/ /a/ apple." We talked about each object and that they start with Aa.

For the tracing worksheet I pointed at Aa, I gave name and sound. I traced one of the letter Aa for him to see how it's done. We traced the same one together and he traced the last one on his own. He then colored the apple on the coloring worksheet.

Letter Aa snack: apple. He ate the whole thing, core and seeds lol!



Numbers:


Fun and easy way to teach numbers and number value. In addition, you can also incorporate color recognition and fine motor development. This was a
Pinterest inspired activity!



Theme:


This activity took a lot of prep time, but it was worth it! E did a great job matching all the body parts. This worksheet will be available for free download on Teachers Pay Teachers shop! Still working on getting the shop up and running. Check for it next week :)

Books we read before doing the My Body activity:


Songs we sang: "Head and Shoulders" and  "God Made Me"



Bible:


Scripture: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Genesis 1:1 

Song: "God is Creator", by Seeds Family Worship.

{I love Seeds Family worship! They take scripture verses and put them in a fun catchy tune for children to sing and memorize God's Word! Love it!}

I read page one of My First Bible. E helped me put the visual together as we heard and sang along to "God is Creator" song.



Gross Motor:


Song: "Hop Skip Kip," by Have Fun Teaching

This song was a hit with E! He loved the beats! It made him hop! We played the song all week. He enjoyed hopping and skipping along! I even got a sweat on, hopping along with him ;)




Thank you for your support and stopping by! Hope these activities inspire you!

Blessings,
Erica
