Suggested Activities:• Character Trait:
- Read God, I Need to Talk to You about Lying by Susan K. Leigh
- Teaching True vs. Not True - This is a great family activity from Value Parenting. (Reprinted with Permission)
Adult: Do you know the difference between something that's true and something that's not true? Let's see if you do. I'll say something and you declare the statement "true" or "not true." Begin with simple physical facts and move toward things relating to behavior, for example:
You can tell the difference between truth and what is not truth. Do you know what it's called when someone says something that's not true? It's called a lie. Let's do a few more examples. These are little harder so listen carefully. This time say "truth" if it is true and "lie" if it is not true. (Continue to use illustrations appropriate to your child.)
Why is telling the truth better than telling a lie? (So that everyone knows what really happened; so the wrong person won't get blamed; so we can learn to do better, etc.) When in doubt, tell the truth. A lie will always lead to trouble.• Bible:
- Develop various patterns (AB, ABA, ABB) through beading with Primary Lacing Beads or by threading fruit loops onto spaghetti pieces stuck vertically into play dough. (Thank you to Kate for this idea.)
• Letters & Numbers:
Week 30 focuses on the hump characters - r, n, m, h - those characters that start with a line and then have one or two humps. Start by creating the characters using play dough snakes or pipe cleaners and move to writing the characters on the Hump Character worksheet.
Continue to have the child practice writing his phone number and address on the 1" Tracing Paper. Slowly remove the red dot, green dot, and then box as the child is ready.
• My Color Book:
Cut, color, and finish the My Green Book. Help your child read the lines.
• Book of the Week:
- Instruct the child to draw a picture depicting her favorite part of the story.
• Fine Motor Skills:
Play dough - Hide coins or small items in the play dough or putty and have your child find the item. Encourage your child to not use her thumb but to use the weaker fingers instead.
• Gross Motor Skills:
Walk like an animal. Have the child come up with ideas but here are a few to get you started.
From Head to Toe by Eric Carle - This is a fun book to read along with this activity.
- Bear - on all fours
- Crab - side to side
- Turtle - creep
- Snake - slither on tummy
- Ostrich - hold one ankle up
- Frog - squat and jump
- Kangaroo or bunny - hop with both feet
- Horse - gallop
- Gorilla - bend your knees
• Visual Perception Skill:
While cutting worksheets are not typical visual perception activities, Cutting worksheets are included because children with visual perception issues often struggle with cutting skills. Teach the child to cut in the middle of the black line. Dominant hand does the cutting while the other hand moves the paper. Elbows should not point out while cutting. If this happens, the paper needs to be moved. Worksheets are available by clicking the links below or in the ABCJLM Visual Perception Workbook available to purchase. The worksheets increase in difficulty.
|Cutting 1||Cutting 2||Cutting 3|
|Cutting 4||Cutting 5||Cutting 6|
