I am going to try to be more diligent about sharing what we do for preschool each week.  I do everything literature based right now and Adeline seems to really like it.  If you follow us on instagram then you have seen most of these activities already.  I am also going to work on cleaning up our preschool page.  It needs a lot of work.

Last week our book was We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen.  Addie really enjoyed the activities we did for it.

1.  We finger painted.  One of Addie’s favorite things to do is to paint.

I just did a google search for a bear coloring page and I liked this one the best.  For the finger paint I made some.  I used corn starch, water, and food coloring.  To make the paint you just mix 1 cup of water with 1 tablespoon of corn starch in a sauce pan over medium heat.  Add in the food coloring and stir until the mixture gets thick.  Take off heat and let it cool completely before using.

It has a really gooey feel to it.

2.  We made a map.

We just used stamps, construction paper, and the brown finger paint from the previous project to make our map.  I let her place everything where she wanted it and then I made the trail.  I tried getting her to place things in certain places and she was not liking me telling her what to do.  Just letting her do it seemed to be a better option.

After we made the map we went on a bear hunt.  We had a big box that we had recently gotten and used that for our cave.  Addie placed her teddy bear in it and we went on a hunt.  Addie had so much fun with this activity.  We did it I don’t know how many times in a row and then when Brian got home she had to do it with him too.

3.  We watched it on youtube.

I really don’t utilize youtube enough.  It is something I am going to try to do more often.  Addie watched this video of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt so many times.  We also watched videos about bears on youtube.  This what not as exciting as the book.

4.  B is for Bear.

This was a cute little craft.  We did a few activities for the letter B and this was one of them.  Some other B pages we did were:

Dot pages and Block Letters (both found at the same website The Measured Mom.

ABC Bible Verse Poster from Homeschool Creations.

5.  Hand print bear.

I think our hand print bears turned out really cute.

6.  We made a lap book.

This was our first time doing a lap book.  I think we will do more in the future.  I know next year for Sofia’s homeschool curriculum she is going to be making several lap books.  I thought we might go ahead and give it a try now.  You can find the one we did for this book at Homeschool Share.

I’m looking forward to sharing what we are doing this week.  I think it is going to be a lot of fun.
