Preschool Corner ~ Robots


This week our theme was robots and what a busy week it was.  I didn’t realize how much we accomplished until I looked through our pictures.

~Circle Time~

Carissa at 1+1+1=1 put together a Calendar Notebook, which we have started using.  The notebook has been a BIG HIT with both of my kids.


We also like to add lots of singing and dancing during our circle time to get out the wiggles before we do any table work.  This week we sang and danced to Robot Song from Preschool of Rock.

For most of the learning activities we used the Robot Printable Pack from Jolanthe at Homeschool Creations.


Aiden worked on the letter Rr this week.  He has his uppercase letters down so we focused on the lowercase letter. 


He sang the ABC Song and traced the letter Rr with his light up pointer. IMG_6686


Aiden was very proud of himself for cutting and putting his robot puzzle together (counting 1 –10).


He also worked on graphing different colored robots,

and we talked about fractions and he used our Guidecraft Fraction Cups ~ matching them to the fraction robots.



We recently started using Raising Rock Stars Letter printables from Carissa at 1+1+1+1 to go along with our letter of the week.  I am loving this addition to our homeschool curriculum!  This week the focus was Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.


~iPod Apps~

If you ask Aiden what his favorite part of school is I feel sure he would say using my iPod.  This week he played Toca Boca’s Robot Lab

~Getting Crafty~

Our big craft project this week was making a robot costume.

Then we had a robot race.


~Snack Time~

I absolutely love a theme so when I found these cute robot cupcake molds I had to have them.  The kids actually use them all the time for snack.  This week they had chocolate pudding with sprinkles and graham crackers.


~Just for Fun~

We pulled out a favorite at house, robot stackers.
