After some discussion, we decided to finish up L-Leaf unit for this week and then take a 2 week break instead of 3. It should be doable, since we're only going to go out of town next Sat.
So, here's our plan for L-Leaf week!
*Pick up leaves in our area *Leaves placement (using laminating method)
*Draw trees and parts
*Make maple leaf cookies or simply leaf cookies Supplementary activities
*Leaf sorting game (I'll show it when I finish)
*Words Match for "I will live and grow in Jesus" Language/Math supplementary
*Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Magnet game (Read the book [a GREAT one, btw] and let the kids put up the alphabets on tree) I got the drawing here
*Math numbers sight words (I got the download here)
*L dot to dot
*Tracing worksheets (for preschooler) We already got a great resource from International Paper (free posters) and also an online resource for the trees in NYC.
Here's our booklist.
