Once Upon a Time...
Once upon a time a Princess named Lucy begged her mommy the Queen to have a princess themed week of homeschool. She worked hard all year and learned a lot, so the Queen finally gave in and the princess learned happily ever after.
Princess Graphing - I found most of my math resources from this FREE packet!! Click here for resource link. Princess graphing was great she simply rolled a princess dice (included in the free packet, small assembly on the grown ups half but nothing too hard), and colored the appropriate squares. It goes up to ten so it allows for many rolls, and to stop when you want or to the number ten. It was a great opportunity to introduce or reinforce "more" and fewer" when the chart is finished, and introduces graph reading skills.
Princess Number Wheel - Again using the same free resource I cut the wheel of princesses out and numbered 10 clothespins 1-10. Each section of the wheel had 1-10 princesses on it and Lucy put the appropriate clothespin to that section. To make the activity more challenging you could create your own wheel and add more princesses with clipart or stickers.
Princess Patterns - From the same resource I printed out these adorable princesses patterns. I was great cutting practice as she cut the missing pattern pieces at the bottom of the page and glued them on.
Letter Work and Writing
Workbooks - We are on the letter Yy this week and it has become challenging for her so we've implemented a few workbook pages for added practice and it has greatly helped her improve. If you want to see what my favorite workbooks to use are check out this page where I posted my favorite and how I use them.
Upper/lowercase Match up - From the same resource as the math worksheets (seriously its a 40+ page free packet people!) Lucy matched the Princess wearing the uppercase letter to the crown with the lowercase letter.
Dry Erase Letter Practice - We needed some extra scaffolding on the letter "Yy" and she would occasionally get frustrated with crayon and paper so I switched the narrative and have her practice on dry erase which calmed her down and seemed to make learning fun again.
Art and Crafts
Mermaid Tail Bookmark - I found a mermaid tail template (googled mermaid tail template and found this) cut out a few because I know my daughter would want to make a few. She used markers and made about 4 and I used my laminator cut it out then hot clued it to a clothespin.
Paper bag Princess Dress - After reading paper bag princess we used a paper grocery bag and decorated it as a beautiful princess dress.
Elsa Slime - Check out my recipes for play to see how we made this slime. The only difference is we added chunky blue glitter (found on amazon apparently this glitter is used as festival glitter?? I actually almost bought blue marajuana leaves by mistake!! haha) also our slime was stickier than usual so we added more contact solution to our hands and the slime and it fixed the issue.
