Creation Week: Plan

For Creation week, I'm hoping to do:
1. Creation book (from curriculum) 
2. Creation Numbers (from curriculum) 
3. Read the Creation account from Picture That! Bible (I like it)
4. Creation Lapbook (More details later) 
5. Alphabets reviews

On the supplement side:
1. Colleen's box (she'll have some simple folder games, puzzles, lacing and stuff in her box) 
2. Alphabet puzzle and Alphabet game (from Letter-of-the-week
3. Matching lower and upper case letters using my should-be-patented 24-pocket folder and the ABC game cards

Creation Lapbook:
Cover (Globe and foam hands) downloaded from here
"Which day is it?" creation game. Icons from the same download place
Creation Wheel

Snack Ideas:
Nancy from the MFW Msg Board suggested these for snacks:
Day 1 Oreo cookies and milk for light and dark.
Day 2 Marshmallows and water for sky and water.
Day 3 Dirt cups(chocolate pudding with crushed Oreos mixed in).
Day 4 Cheese and crackers for the moon and planets.
Day 5 Fish crackers. (I add: put them in blue jell-O for effect)
Day 6 Animal crackers.
Day 7 Sundaes for rest
Such great ideas right?

Planning for Kindergarten 2010

PreK was fun, but Kindergarten is going to be a blast. I know it just by planning.
We're using My Father's World: A to Z Kindergarten curriculum. (plus a couple more supplements) but because I really want my kid to learn more, but because he already knows and writes the entire alphabet and most letter sounds. Also I have a almost 3 yr old tagging along.
Erica (Confessions of a Homeschooler) has the COOLEST letter-of-the-week curriculum! I love her graphics! She has lots of free printables or you can buy it a very reasonable price.
My Father's World users has a great network of resources out there...the yahoo group, blogrolls...etc. They gave me so many wonderful ideas!! Thank you guys!
So, here's how I'm PLANNING for this blog to be.
1. Lesson Plans
Before every "topic", I'll try to put up my plans for what I'm going to do, the supplements and the side activities for my 2.5-3 yr old.
2. Lesson Reports
After every "topic", I'll try to put up a report of what we did.
Seems simple enough, but since I have another personal restricted blog, I do hope this can continue.
I also write this blog because we are severely in lack of group support. If you live in Queens, New York and you're a Christian homeschooler, whether you're using MFW or not, do contact us!!
We are starting a very new and rather lonely journey, because we can't find enough homeschoolers around and we're one of the rare Asians...
