This week’s letter sound and theme for ds4 were Ww and water. As usual we had quite a bit of fun with this, and I could see he is really improving with letter sounds, reading and writing.
Here he is completing some of the worksheets that come with the curriculum. It’s about a worksheet a day, and he’s gotten to the point where he can do most of them without assistance. He’s so cute here, he would sound out and read the word, then draw a little picture under it lol.
He colored a printout about the water cycle and made a little “water book” that tells the ways we use water and gives hints on how to take care of that precious resource. Both of these are from KidsSoup.
We made a rain stick with instructions from EnchantedLearning. Someone once asked about the letter sound cards from the MFW curriculum. You can see them in the background of these pics, on the wall under our blackboard. I just mounted them with small velcro circles. It acts as his alphabet poster and is a better way to keep track of the cards for us. He takes the one down that we are studying for the week and can easily put it right back up. Sadly, Aa has been missing since day one lol.
We discussed the three states of water and evaporation, and then measured a cup of water, watched it steam and boil, and then measured it again to show how some had evaporated.
I have really been impressed with the MFW curriculum and how it has been just the right thing at the right time for ds4. It’s not too hard, not too preschool, doesn’t take up a whole day and keeps him interested. Just what we both needed this year. For more MFW weekly reports head over to Mishmash Maggie’s.
