Alex is 5 years, 5 months
Max is 3 years, 9 months

We are using My Father’s World Kindergarten as our base,
adding in some of my own printables.

This week, we are learning the letter Ff for Fox.
Our Bible words are: God’s Word makes me wiser than my enemies.

This post is more than a little lacking in content.  I am WAAAY behind on posting this, as we actually finished this unit at the end of May!  I’d started the post, but couldn’t find some pictures…and I still can’t, so this is a rather barebones post.  Sorry about that!


We loved all 5 of these book choices!  Rosie’s Walk was short, but cute.  It made Alex giggle!  Fox is just a sweet little story about a baby fox growing up.  The other three are fun stories about tricky foxes, who sometimes win and sometimes get outsmarted.


We learned about the armor of God.
(short version…I try never to give away too much about the Bible in this curriculum, so you’ll invest in the manual rather than copying from here!)


He is so fast at reading CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words now!  He is getting to the point where he is trying to read signs on buildings, words in magazines, etc.  I love this point! Smile




Xs are fun to make! Smile



When Alex really applies himself, his numbers turn out great. 
It’s still wobbly, but he’s getting better all the time. 



I really thought this might be tricky for Alex, but he caught on quickly.  You had to go through the chart, recording how many eyes one one fox, how many eyes on two foxes, etc.  Then you would do the same for ears, legs, etc.  He did a great job, and he really didn’t need my help once he understood.



This sorting page involved determining whether animals live in the air, on the land, or in the sea.  I drew the background, and Alex sorted (and colored some of…) the pictures.



After several reading of The Gingerbread Boy (different versions), we made our own gingerbread boys and girls.  Thankfully, ours did NOT run away when we opened the oven! Open-mouthed smile

We also did some Gingerbread Baby printables from Homeschool Creations website, but I can’t seem to find pictures of any of this!  They’re not on my computer or my camera.
