First Week of Preschool and the Letter L

This was our first official week of preschool and Bekah was so excited about it.
I looked into many different curriculum plans and decided on using Carissa's Raising Rock Stars Preschool from 1+1+1=1. She has some amazing ideas on her blog and I'm so pleased to be using the RRS with Bekah. We will also be supplementing with other things and I will be sure to link to those as well.

This week focused on the letter L and everyone we saw this week was told that it was "L week"!

We began our morning with a school bus puzzle. This used to be hard for her, but now she can do it without a problem.

Next we had a very special breakfast of French Breakfast Puffs from Pioneer Woman. I have to admit, these were a bit sweet for my taste buds.

While I cleaned up Bekah played with her Melissa and Doug tangram puzzles. She's really been into these lately.

After getting dressed we began our "official" preschool day. Bekah made a book called I See. She read this little book to all of her little animals.

We played an adorable school house game that I printed from Childcare land.

It has been so hot here this week and Bekah has been begging to go swimming, so after lunch we took a pool break. It was heavenly! (I love homeschooling already!)

We made cool structures with toothpicks and marshmallows. This was perfect to make the letter L.

Bekah practiced writing the letter L. We're really working on our pencil grip. We're getting there.

She cut out L is for... cards. I found this picture so funny!

Pretending to be a ladybug!

Our Wooly Lamb turned out really cute! This was from an old Mailbox magazine.

I think one of the most favorite acitivites were these Exercise A-Z cards that I printed from Homeschool Share. This is Bekah Balancing on one foot.

Look at that smile! I think she loves homeschooling as much as her mommy does!
You can see what others have been up to for preschool at:
1+1+1=1 and Homeschool Creations.
Hope you all had a great homeschooling week!


  1. I would love home school if I got to take a pool break too! (Well I do really love it without pool breaks... but I am jealous!)

  2. My girls would love the marshmallows and toothpicks activity! We will be doing that next week. We do RRS too and love it!
