Kindergarten w/Krash ~ YCR/Unit 8, RRSK/Bb, Phineas & Ferb


You Can Read: Unit 8 {little, do, we, all}
RRSK: Letter Bb
Theme of the Week: Phineas & Ferb & Rainforest
We had to extend the YCR and RRSK units beyond a week, so he had 2 themes during that time.  A Mini Phineas & Ferb few days and the Rainforest. 

You can download all of the printables for this unit FREE here on the main RRSK page, just scroll down until you see them!  We do 2 activities from the set per day, making 10 total activities. 
Homeschool at its finest, does tracing a Bible verse get any better than this?IMG_3743

I did the cutting for him, he searched for the words as we recalled the verse together as he glued each word down.  TONS of word work going on here, he really likes this activity!IMG_3791

He still wants to teach the songs to other kids, so he made another video for you!    You can download the printable with the verse tune here on the RRSP Letter Bb webpage.

RRSK Letter Bb Bible Verse ~ Matthew 5:9

He really liked glittering the word…IMG_4036

We are pulling the easy reader book out to work on it again.  The easy reader is a part of the Letter Bb RRS Preschool set. Here he was reading his easy reader to me, but struggling a bit so we headed down to the bean bag to cuddle up and read together. 
PacMan saw me getting ready to read with Krash and asked me if he could take a video of us reading together.  I said yes and then thought some of you might want to peek at it.

Signing his name to the story he dictated to me.  He asked me to re-read his story to him many times, even days after we wrote it! IMG_4267

We used unit 8 from You Can Read.  Here’s a glimpse into some of the You Can Read work he did.  He did it all but I only have a few photos!
Color by word…IMG_4116
Stamping his words {this is a You Can Read Add-On}…IMG_4109
Tracing his words using our dry erase activity centerIMG_4032
Adding to his word caterpillar.  He re-reads the words up there to me, then we add any new words he knows…IMG_4342

I created a new add-on that will available in the You Can Read paid section SOON!  Roll & Graph Sight Words!  Krash loves this game when we play it with our theme packs, so I thought he might enjoy it specifically for his words.  I was right, he LOVED it!  He rolled the cube, read the word and then found it and marked it on his graph.  One of his favorite parts were the “wild cards.”  Since there are only 4 words and 6 spaces, I made 2 spaces wild, so he could choose which word to mark.  Only key-he still has to read the word to me!

Word-Play-rectangle4122We shot words with Nerf guns again, just didn’t take any new pictures!  Check out more wonderful Word Play ideas here!


Phineas and Ferb is such a regular things around here.  I used to think it was a one of those “bad shows” until I learned that my friend Shannon’s older kids watched it.  We are very similar in parenting so I figured we could give it a try.  I am SO glad we did, it is hilarious and we all love it, from Ladybug up to Daddy!
I made Krash some Phineas and Ferb Kindergarten Printables and he loved them.  Here he was practicing counting backwards 10-1…IMG_3799

Loving the puppets in the rainforest sensory binIMG_3998

We combined our animal cards with our rainforest sensory bin and had a blast night when our friends were over playing.  One child would hold the photo cards and the rest were divided into teams.  In this shot, she is holding up the animal for the teams to search for.IMG_4188
They all run to the bin and crowd around {after rules were given about pushing, touching, etc.} and dig through with only one hand to try to find the animal…IMG_4191

Krash was VERY good at this game!!! It was hard for the other kids, since the names of some of the rainforest animals are not common {tapir, bonobo, mandrill, etc.}

We got out a new Guidecraft toy for review, Locking Ladders.  Both boys absolutely LOVE these!  Pac said for me to tell my readers it is probably his very favorite Guidecraft toy that we have reviewed {and we have a lot!}.  Here Krash made himself a weight to life on the left, and a camper for people to ride on on the right…

Another consignment sale treat, Melissa and Doug Cookies.  Played with a LOT this week by all kids!IMG_4079

Krash spends time playing “school” games on the iPad almost daily.  I have a folder set up for him of all of the games he can choose from during “school iPad time.”  He still loves the Bob Books app, which is such great phonics practice!  IMG_3782

Wedgits are always a popular choice for all 3 kids.  Krash has gotten much more elaborate with his building.IMG_4202
My boy has big dreams of being able to do the splits like the Karate Kid.  he is in gymnastics now and LOVING it.  He is very strong and coordinated, it will be neat to see where God takes his abilities.   IMG_3868
He’s a hula-hoop master too.  Both boys are amazing, I don’t get it-I can’t keep it up for a second!IMG_4276 IMG_4275 
Magneatos continue to come out a lot…IMG_4197
Krash has been loving our nightly Table Talkers games, I am amazed with how much learning is going on in that little brain of his!  Enter to win Table Talkers here! IMG_3827
