From Motherhood on a Dime:


Day 1:  Fingerpaint the Battle of Jericho worksheet.

Day 2: Build a wall using large blocks or tissue boxes.  March around the wall and play musical instruments.  Knock the walls down.

  • Maraca – Place a few dried beans or rice on the top of a paper or plastic plate. Lay another plate (with the top down) on top of the plate.  Staple the sides together.  Decorate with streamers, yarn, stickers, etc. -or- Place dried beans in a plastic Easter egg.  Tape shut.
  • Drum – Use an oatmeal container with the lid.  Cover the sides and decorate.
  • Tamborine – Poke holes along the edge of a paper plate.  Push the base of little “jingle” bells through the holes.  String the bells underneath together with a piece of yarn.  Decorate and add streamers.  -or- Poke holes around the edge of a plastic bowl.  Push the base of little “jingle” bells through the holes. Using pipe cleaners, thread through the bell base and twist.  Decorate.
  • Cymbals – Collect two metal lids (from baby food or other glass jars).   Poke a hole in the middle of the lid using a hammer and a nail.  Fold a pipe cleaner (approximately 3″ long) in half.  Push the end through the hole and twist.  Fold the ends so they are against the bottom of the lid.  Have the child hold the pipe cleaners and hit the lids together.
    •  Around the Wall of Jericho
      Tune:  Mulberry Bush 
      Around the walls of Jericho

Letter G in Big Thoughts for Little People: ABC’s to Help You Grow



    • From Preschool Palace curriculum: Introduce Letter G– Show your child the Letter G poster. Trace over the letter with your fingers. Ask your child to do the same. Trace the letter G in the air or use personal wipe-off boards. Make a letter G basket that includes several items that start with the letter G. Enunciate the G sound when identifying the items. Ask child to repeat or name the items in the basket.  Then ask child what other items could be put in the basket.
    • Day 1: Introduce the letters Gg using the tactile letters and decorate the Letter Poster to add to the Letter of the Week book.
    • Day 2: Use the Letter Posters as Play Dough Mats and role the play dough into ropes and lay on the Letter Poster to form each letter. This adds one more level of learning and is a great fine motor activity, which helps improve handwriting.
    • Day 3:  Use a magazine to cut out items that begin with the letter Gg.  Glue the pictures on the Gg Poster. (or)  Glue pictures of items grown in a garden onto the Gg Poster.

Book of the Week: Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown


– Don’t hurry through this book.  Spend time looking at the details in the pictures.  Name the different items.

– As you put your child to sleep, tell different objects in your child’s room “good night.”

– Focus on the /g/ sound in the word “good.”

– Point out the moon in the illustrations and observe the moon in the sky at night.  Notice the position of the moon when you go to bed and when you get up.  Often you can see the moon during the day as well.

– Shape Walk through the Book:  Look for different shapes in the illustrations.

Starfall Gg Computer Activity


Gather various sized circular lids.  Dip the edge of the lids into paint and stamp onto a piece of paper.

Add to your Shape Family by creating a Circle and Square Buddy.  Cut a large circle/square out of construction paper.  Accordion-fold long, thin pieces of paper to form legs and arms.  Glue to the shape.  Add a face with a circle/square shape for the eyes and nose.  May also add shoes, hands, hair, or other accessories.

Suggested books from Motherhood On A Dime:


Using the tactile letters in the child’s name plus an additional few, assist the child in putting the letters in order.

Numbers: 5
Put on a hat. Then take a dive. Make a big round tummy. Now that’s a five!      – or-
A little bit down. Circle the drive.  Put on a hat.  That makes a five!

Day 1: Tactile numbers(also called sandpaper or textured)—because many 3 year olds do not have the fine motor skills for handwriting activities, trace the numbers with the child’s finger. As the child traces the tactile numbers, be sure to say the number rhymes included in the objectives to help the child learn the correct information

Day 2:  Count out piles of five Bugles snacks and then eat while listening to the story of Joshua.  Remind your child that the horns were played as the people marched around the walls.  (Idea from Shining Star Magazine)

Day 3: Using the Five Little Ducks worksheet, order the 0-5 ducks.

Comprehension Questions: (use when planning story and at the end of the week use them to check for understanding of the Bible story)

• Fine Motor Skill: Hide little beads in a large piece of play dough or putty.  Instruct the child to use his index finger to find the beads.  Using the thumb is “cheating” and not working the weaker muscles.

• Gross Motor Skill: While playing the actual rules of Twister is probably too difficult for this age level, take turns calling out colors and body parts to match.
