preschool construction unit

Homeschool 2015 week one was a great start to our year.  This is our first year educating 4 children at home.  We are covering everything from Farm Animals to Physics this year!  In addition to the structured curriculum for Jude, Taryn and Ty, I have put together an early pre-k curriculum for Jonah.  We have a theme each week and our first theme was Construction / Diggers.  I forgot to add photos of our Letter Boxes for this week – I’ll add them for week 2 when I post – they were a huge hit with Jonah.  Our week looked like this:
