“J” and other lessons

We’ve been learning the letters J and K this week, and I couldn’t resist the great opportunity to add some Bible into our lessons. Coloring pages about the life and ministry of Jesus and a handwritten note to Jesus were combined into a keepsake book.

And my toddler has been focusing on her shapes this week. Today, the teddy bears played “Ring-around-the-shape”.

She loved this activity! However, she was distressed that not all of her bears matched the colors of her shapes (i.e. orange bears on a black oval, and–the worst offense–purple bears on a pink heart).

Our life is creative chaos, and our homeschool is loud and busy and distracted and challenging and lovely. My name is Tracy, and I homeschool my crew of three kids with ADHD/dyslexia, finding creative ways to use their strengths to teach their weaknesses. As a homeschooled homeschooler, I love customizing curriculum and making adjustments to incorporate fun, hands-on projects for out-of-the-box learners. Stop by growingNgrace.com to find grace for the messes and mistakes, and knowledge to pick up the pieces and make something special. Let’s grow together!

One thought on ““J” and other lessons

  1. Thanks so much for linking to My Shae Noel’s “All Things Wonderful” link party. What a fun learning day. I love your idea of putting the teddy bears around the shapes to play “ring around the shape”. I like how you shared how your daughter was distressed that the bears didn’t match the shape colors perfectly. That sounds just like my little one.
    I hope to have you share again and I look forward to visiting the rest of your blog.
    Take care,
