All about "H"

This week for my 13 Things Thursday, I am going to share some of the highlights of what my kindergartener and I have done for "H week". If you are new to my blog, I have been going through the alphabet with my daughter for kindergarten. We are doing a letter each week. Without further ado....

  1. We learned about Hearts. We listened to each other's heart. We drew and cut out hearts. We learned about being happy and how that helps our heart. 

  2. We learned about houses. We built a fort with blankets and pretended it was a house. We also learned that animals have homes too.  

  3. We learned about heat!  Heat is a good thing to have in a house when the temperature outside is below zero degrees!

  4. We learned about heaven.  Heaven is a place that we will be going to someday!  As my daughter said, "Heaven is Jesus' home right now but I'll live there someday."

  5. Our Bible lesson was about Hannah.

  6. We learned about staying healthy.  We did exercises to make our heart go faster.  We learned about healthy foods. 

  7. We learned about hiberation. This was a big word for a kindergartener so we talked about how it is what some animals do in the winter.  My daughter's first reaction when I told her the meaning of hiberation was...."Can we watch Over the Hedge? The bear on there was hiberating when RJ took his food!"

  8. We did lots of different things with our hands!  We did hand painting (fingerpainting). We did handprints. We talked about how God created everyone's hand prints different.  I found this handprint ice cream cone for one of our crafts this week. 

  9. We had fun playing with our hair!  How many hair accessories can we fit in our hair?!

  10. We watched hippos swim in the water at the National Geographic's Creature Feature!

  11. We ate hamburgers, hotdogs, and ham slices. We could have had honey this week but she doesn't like the taste!

  12. We read the story of The Little Red Hen.

  13. We sang the Hokey Pokey while wearing fancy hats!

Head over to Happy To Be at Home for more Thursday Thirteen lists!

Megan, my 5 year old, just looked at your handprint ice cream cone and said "Mommy, that looks yummy!". I will have to make ones of those with her. Thanks for the idea!
