Pre-K Monthly Summary: October

I've posted about some of the themes we have done this fall, but I thought I'd also do a monthly summary post of some of our other school activities (mostly for me to look back on).  Since he goes to preschool two days a week for social interaction and because he is only 3, school is always short, doesn't happen daily, and isn't forced. 


We're using some lessons from Kindergarten Math with Confidence, but only those that fit his current skill level. We're also adding in other activities.

Comparing numbers

Shopping for cars is still his favorite math activity! He asks for it frequently. I used dry erase notecards for prices (0-20 cents). I give him 5 pennies, 1-2 nickels and 1 dime. I think we're ready to move on to higher prices.

Learning about symmetry with his Geoland Jr Activity Set
Miquon Math book with a dry erase sleeve.
Playing around with Cuisenaire rods.
Osmo Tangrams and Shapes
Building with geometry builders
Playing with his coding fox.


We're working our way through All About Spelling. We definitely keep the lessons short, subdividing them into multiple days. He likes it as long as we don't try to do too much at a time.

He's doing great now that we're actually spelling words. Sometimes he wants to use the letter tiles, sometimes he uses other letters we have, sometimes he jumps and calls out the letters.


Handwriting has been a little hit or miss. We are using Handwriting Without Tears Kickstart Kindergarten He has come up with a way to write several letters before we get to them, so he's having to re-learn at times. He LOVES the  workbook, though.

Other Activities

Watching Kidstart Spanish
He still loves reading books. Usually, he insists on reading himself, but will occasionally let me read to him. Usborne Lift-the-Flap books are still favorites.
Hanging in his boat. I'm glad he's becoming more open to imaginative play.
Grandma gave him some US states stickers. I wish I could find more because he loved them!
A little painting.
Numbers, cars and states, three of his favorite things!
Still doing great at tumbling class.
"Playing" the Scrambled States of America. He said he wants to play his way instead of by the rules.
