So as you may know I've been wanting Itty-Bitty Bookwork's Curriculum for while now. I knew it was JUST what we needed but at the time it wasn't something we could do. We finally have Itty-Bitty Bookworm and as I already knew, it is PERFECT for us! PER-FECT!
Zorro loves this literature based curriculum just as much as I do! The activities, material, structure and program is amazing! It's not too much to do on any given day and the activities vary along with the material and focus. It is a very complete curriculum and we are THRILLED to finally be using it!
I will be blogging about some of what we do during the weeks in addition to our CRAFTivities and Kid Trips. So you'll get to see first hand how great this curriculum is and what my little dude it learning! It's been a long time since I did these kids of posts huh?
This week we took it easy and acclimated ourselves to the new curriculum and schedule (which I am still working on). Our focus was LEARNING ABOUT MYSELF AND MY FRIENDS.
Zorro told me his favorite things about himself where his bewwly (belly), ears and arms. LOL
We made this "face" mask:
Zorro did a great job doing ALL of the cutting and gluing himself. I cut a half circle in the red paper and what you see was what he was able to "follow" of my lines. I think he did fantastic!
For our cooking project this week we made these faces:
Let me tell you, it was NO easy task getting him to make that face. Most of the toppings ended up in have "favorite bewwy." Now I know why it's his fave.

It was also fitting that since we were starting this literature based curriculum that we should go to the OC Children's Book Festival!
We hear stories, met Clifford and MORE!

We also did some offshoots of this theme and a great name activity that I will post separately.
Hang in there with me while I get some structure here and re organize everything! My preschool posts will get more organized each week as I figure out how I want set them up.
