All about "E"

We have gotten a little behind with our letters! I have been busy with household duties and getting my older boys back on track with their schooling so my daughter and I have not done "school" every day.

Anyway, here is a list of things that we have done for the letter "E".

We talked about our planet, Earth. We did pages from the space theme over at Learning Page(to access the pages become a member for free). The pages were talking about the moon going around the Earth, the planet Earth is the third planet and identifying Earth from other objects. We talked about the fact that we live on planet, Earth and that God created it. Our verse for the week was Genesis 1:1.

The number we worked on was "eleven". We counted different objects up to eleven along with learning how to write two ones close enough together so that someone knows it is "11" and not two separate ones.

We talked about "ears" and how they are needed for listening. A common question around here this past week was "Are you using your ears to listen?" I also showed her that different living things have different kinds of ears. Human ears are different from elephant ears. Dog ears are different from bunny ears.

We also put together both the "short e" and "long e" books that were in the First School's E Lesson Plans.

We talked about envelopes and what goes in envelopes. We also talked about mail carriers because according to my daughter they carry alot of envelopes!

And what would the letter E be without talking about elephants! We walked around like elephants! (sorry no pics of that! LOL)

We also watched Sesame Street to see Ernie and Elmo!

We ate eggs and egg noodles. I was going to make homemade egg noodles this week but got too busy so we just ate store bought ones.

I hope that this gives you some ideas as to what activities you can do with your preschooler or kindergartener where they are learning and you are not having to "break the bank"!
