October Week 3

Alphabet: letter Gg
Math: number 4, counting with pumpkins and shapely pumpkin craft
Theme: air transportation 
Bible: creation day 5


Letter of the week box: glue, glue stick, gift, green, garbage can, golf ball, golf club, girl, goose, gorilla shirt, guitar, flash cards.

Letter Gg Craft: sprinkle gold glitter on letter G {I added the glue on the G and my son loved sprinkling the glitter over the G}

Letter Gg Activity: sensory tub

***Update: a week after posting this, I found a recipe for ALL natural, safe and edible Gak!!! Oh how I wish I had this recipe a week earlier! The recipe is by Fun At Home With Kids. Here is the pin from Pinterest:
What is inside the sensory tub: Green Gak, Gold plastic beads (from an old cheap plastic necklace we already had), two googly eyes, glitter, letter G magnet and a plastic knife for play.

I found this recipe for GAK on Pinterest. This recipe is very easy and simple to make! You will need Elmer's glue, borax and water.

E loved pushing the beads into the Gak and then cutting the Gak into pieces. 


Math activity: counting with pumpkins

I drew four pumpkins on a piece of card stock paper and numbered the pumpkins 1-4. I paired it with a bowl of plastic pumpkins, pumpkin ice cube tray and tongs. 

Number 4 Activity and Craft: count four pumpkin stickers and add them on a number four cut out. 

Shape Craft: shapely pumpkin

This was a fun and easy way to review shapes! 


All week we played with airplanes: at home, in the bath, at restaurants, in the car and so on! As he played with them I would ask him questions like: where do airplanes fly? Do airplanes fly in the sky? In the clouds? Do airplanes fly in Water? Do airplanes fly on the road? 

For this activity I created an airport landing strip with painters tape. At one end I had 4 (number of the week!) airplanes covered with cotton balls (clouds!) in a small plastic container. E would find an airplane,in the clouds, and have it fly out to land on the airport strip. He would have it park at the end or fly back again in the clouds. E had a blast flying the airplanes in the air and hiding them in the clouds.

Memory Verse of the Month: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth." Genesis 1:1

Memory Verse Song: "God is Creator" by Seeds Family Worship

We are continuing to talk about that God is Creator. This week we focused on the fifth day of creation. On day five of creation God said, "let the waters teem with living creatures, and let the birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky."

As I played the scripture song E placed the bird stickers in the sky and the fish stickers in the water on the paper. When the song ended we talked about who made the fish? Who made the birds? We also talked about that fish live in water and birds fly in the sky.

What a blessed week! 
For the fourth week of October we will learn about water transportation.
