W is for Winter {Mommy School}

The first Mommy School packet of 2012 is here!

Download is available at the end of this post.

 

After the holidays, I needed something to look forward to.  A new project.  And so did Little Man!  So I decided to take advantage of the frosty weather to create a winter Mommy School packet!  I was able to complete this packet thanks to my husband!  Sweet Mr. Oopsey Daisy gave me two full days (and I mean full days!) to bust this packet out.

This unit was especially fun for me to put together because I created my own "Magical Mitten Day" with my first graders each January.  I had many happy memories sorting through my teaching files and creating a packet ready for preschoolers!  If you live somewhere where there is absolutely no snow (hello, Arizona!), then no worries.  There are tons of ideas for playing with pretend snow!  This might be a great time to teach about the four seasons.

Here are some of the concepts covered:

Letter of the Week: W

Number of the Week  2

Color of the Week: White

Theme of the Week: Winter

Song of the Week:  Once There Was a Snowman

And of course there are pages and pages of ideas that I can’t wait to do with Little Man including games, literacy activities, math, science, flannel board stories, arts/crafts, and snacks/recipes!

Here are a few sneak peeks:

This snowman sequencing will be a fun way to put events in order.

Count the number of mittens in every box!

ABC Snowman chant.  This packet is bursting with poems, songs, and games!

ABC Mittens for identifying letters

Which one is different? activity.

"The Snowey Pokey" sung to the tune of "The Hokey Pokey."  Clever!

"W "writing practice and coloring pages.

Winter Snow Walk scavenger hunt.

Roll a Snowman game!

A is for Apples {Massive Packet!}

It's Mommy School time! 

Hip hip hooray!! 

Download available at the end of this post.

I am thrilled to be finished with this massive Mommy School unit!  And now I can't wait to get started with all kinds of Apple fun here at home!  Right now is the perfect time to study apples.  Just this week, we are canning our own fresh applesauce!

You may remember that A is for Apples was one of my very first Mommy School units.  However, I didn't create all of my ideas in packet format.  Because it is one of my all-time favorite units, I wanted to re-visit it again this year!  My format for Mommy School has kind of evolved, so I wanted to organize it a little better this year.

 

Here is a little peek at what's inside:

Letter of the Week:  A

Number of the Week:  1

(I am only working on numbers 1-10 right now, so we are starting back over at 1 with this packet!)

Color of the Week:  Red

Song of the Week:  Apples and Bananas

Theme of the Week:  Apples

 

And of course there are many more fun ideas that I can't wait to do with Little Man including games, literacy activities, math, science, flannel board stories, arts/crafts, and recipes!

And here are a couple of sneak previews...

There are TONS of yummy apple recipes!  My mouth is watering just thinking about it!  I used this Apple Pickin' Kit to create these templates.
