Kindergarten Week 6 {LHFHG Unit 4}

We're using Heart of Dakota: Little Hearts for His Glory.

Here are some highlights from our week:


Connor was still interested in Egypt after last week's role playing.  Luckily the curriculum continued with Egypt things.

We found a great book at the library on crafts to do and a few recipes.  Of course I can't remember the name. 

Anyways, the curriculum had us making an Egyptian collar for a Pharaoh.  I had first read him two of our library books we got as extra reading.  He realized that the Pharaohs had no shirts and no socks, so he remedied himself.  The kid gets serious about his role play.  He was very upset he had to wait for our glued on jewels to dry.

Role Play:

After Connor became a Pharaoh I had a hard time getting him to listen to anything.  "No mom, I am the Pharaoh, you have to listen to me!"

So what else was I to do but make a dinner meal fit for a king - straight out of our library book. 
He was less than impressed with his "kingly meal".  Beans and eggs on a bed of lettuce, with a side of plain bread.  But hey.  Eggs were a luxury in Ancient Egypt.  I did give him his milk in a "fancy goblet" so I won brownie points there.

The next morning he was cured of wanting to be a Pharaoh, so we were able to move on to role playing saving baby Moses.

One other role play, from the curriculum, was pretending to be the burning bush.  Connor really loved this.  So much that he colored himself green with washable marker, then ran downstairs to show his dad how to act like a burning bush and retold what bushes need to thrive.


One of the things we learned about was, of course, the bush.  Here he is coloring leaves on the bush in his science book.  He got really into it, telling a long winded story about the leaves and something about a battle of them growing.  There were a lot of spitty boy noises and adventure involved.

Language Arts:

We did extra review this week using the Kumon My Book Of Rhyming Words

From the HOD curriculum we said sang a song that went with the verse ("Trust in the Lord with all your heart..." Proverbs 3:5-6).  One day during the song he suddenly picked up a heart cookie cutter and used it as a prop.  Then he held it above his head and said he was falling in love.  ha!


He loved playing one morning with a new app we downloaded for free, i Learn With Poko.

And that wraps up our week review, in pictures.  Of course there's a ton more we did, but I can't photograph every detail.  ;)
