Preschool: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Since Eleanor is starting Preschool at her demand request (oh help me!) I figured we'd do a fun alphabet theme for her first week of school.

We just recently rowed The ABC Bunny though so I had to choose something different.  Chicka Chicka Boom Boom has always been one of my favorite alphabet books, and is always a preschool favorite in our house, so it made sense to choose it for a fun back-to-school theme!

Of course we did a coloring page one day.

Eleanor loves stickers, so using this Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Recording Sheet from Pre-K Pages was a HUGE hit!  We discussed letters, letter sounds, and colors.  It was great for fine motor skills as she pulled the stickers off and she had a blast matching them up.  She did really well.

She was watching the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom video when Izzy joined her for awhile!

She always laughs at the "Oh no!" part where the letters all fall to the ground.

She wanted to glue one day when Emory was gluing for his reading, so I improvised.  I quickly cut out the coconuts and let her glue them down onto her folder.  We also went ahead and glued down the Letter Shapes inside.  Both are from the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Tot Book from 1+1+1=1 which has several other items, but I only used the two.  We also counted the coconuts!

She also played with letter stamps!  Her facial expressions crack me up!

As you can see, Izzy is her little study buddy.

I found this really cute Crayola alphabet puzzle at Target.  It's a capital/lower case match-up, and I gave her a few sets, mixed up, at a time to work on.  The reverse has numbers too, but we didn't really focus on those.

Other Preschool

Doc McStuffins Dress-Up is a favorite around here.

Shark puppets, Sofia play-dough, linking cubes, and then she had to borrow her brother's MUS blocks.

She found her brother's blocks again!  She really has a lot of fun exploring with them.

Emory got this collection of real insects for his birthday and it was a big hit with everyone!

We only sit down a few times a week for "preschool" and that's enough for her.  She's so young, but she's also very enthusiastic and agreeable.  I just try to keep everything fun and playful for her.
