M is for...

Since we ended our 3 year old curriculum with ABC Jesus Loves Me I realize we have a long span of time before the girls begin attending preschool next year.  So I decided this summer we should review our alphabet letters and some bible stories that we either didn't get to spend enough time on or we missed altogether.

So we're kind of in the middle of the alphabet right now but we will circle back and pick-up the rest of the letters and hopefully get them all in by the end of summer!

M is for...


(we will still be using the posters from ABC Jesus Loves Me I love the size of the letter, they're already set up and ready to print, and the girls are familiar with them so why not)

M is for Macaroni


Snack Time:

Mud in a Mug

Quick Easy and Super Tasty!!
The recipe is actually Brownie for One I found on one day when I was craving brownies.  When cooked up it looks a lot like Mud and the girls really got a kick out of it.
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa
2 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp oil
1/4 tsp vanilla
dash of salt

Combine all ingredients in a mug and microwave for 1 minute!  Let cool it comes out very hot.

Bible Story/Character:

M is for Moses

Here is a craft we did last November!  The girls loved making these little paper dolls!  Moses and the Parting of the Red Sea Activity

Me & Neesie- sweet book about a little girl whose about ready to start Kindergarten and her imaginary friend! 

The Mixed up Chameleon!  I can't say enough about Eric Carle books.  I love his artwork, it also lend for a great art lesson in collage work.

The Movable Mother Goose.  This is a Robert Sabuda book, another illustrator that I admire.  This is not one to let your kids flip through, however, it's great to sit down with, read, and be amazed!


M is for Monster Jam Painting

We decided to make this an outdoor activity.  I could see it getting out of hand really fast. It's really self explanatory but I'll describe what we did anyway.
You will need both a large piece of paper to make the painting on and something else to spread the paint on.  We just happened to have pizza for dinner so I took the pizza box apart and it was perfect.  I put a long line of paint down then added a little water to thin it out.  Then the girls drove their trucks through the paint or "mud" and made tracks on the paper.

This was always a favorite activity when I taught Kindergarten and just for a side note Monster Jam trucks aren't the only trucks that will make tracks.  I actually got some really cheap ones from Walgreens when I did this with my Kindergarten classes because I knew we'd be doing it over and over again all day and I wasn't sure how much the cars could take but even then it all came off easily with just water.

still more to come....
