List of 3 Year Old Homeschool Plans Week 5

We have made it to 3 year old homeschool plans: week 5!  This week the Bible Story is about Noah and the ark that God told him to build.  This is a very fun story for most kids, I think.  It will hopefully be fun for you to teach.

We are also learning the letter Bb and the number 3 this week.

Hopefully Jessica will be able to get some teaching done next week–week 5.  We are on Hurricane Irma watch right now.  This hurricane is crazy!  We are praying that the hurricane will not come to Charleston, SC.  If it does come here, homeschooling definitely will not be a priority, but it might be good for keeping busy.  We shall see.

If you are doing 3 year old homeschool with us, have a great week!

Noah's Ark Magnetic Fun Tin by Lee Publications


Noah’s Ark Magnetic Fun Tin, featuring a full-color play surface printed on the inside of the tin. Each tin consists of 3 sheets of magnets with over 50 magnet animals, Noah and accessories plus 2 extra play cards with new scenes. Collectible carry case to store magnets. Great quiet-time activity for home or travel.


I purchased this from for Jessica to use to teach Hadley the Noah’s Ark story instead of purchasing the Noah’s Ark flannelgraph set.



If you have a Noah’s Ark playset, use it to tell the story.

From Motherhood on a Dime:

  • Talk about the story of Noah. Use a cardboard box for an ark, stuffed animals for the animals on the ark, and act out the story with your child.
  • Reread the story of Noah. Talk about how Noah obeyed God even when it was challenging and no one else believed he was doing the right thing.


Day 1:   Using the Rainbow worksheet, talk about the order of the rainbow colors.  (The worksheet only has six levels because indigo and violet are combined.)  Pour Fruit Loop cereal into a pan.   Begin with purple.  Ask the child to taste the “color” and discuss the fruit the color tastes like.  Spread glue on the smallest arch and lay the cereal in the glue.  Progress outward.  To finish, add cotton balls for clouds.

Day 2:

Play the “Noah’s Ark” adventure on the Charlie Church Mouse Preschool Cd-Rom.  Read more

Day 3:   Glue animal crackers on or add pictures or stickers of various animals to the Ark worksheet. Explain to the child how Noah showed he loved God by obeying His command to build the ark and collect the animals.

  • Create Your Own Rainbow:
    Items Needed:  Container, red/yellow/blue paint, paint brushes, paper
    Directions:  Discuss how colors are created using the three primary colors – red, yellow, and blue.  Combine the colors below and have the child guess what color will be made.  On the Rainbow worksheet have the child paint the six colors of the rainbow (combining indigo and violet) between the lines.  Add cotton balls for clouds.  red and yellow = orange; blue and yellow = green; red and blue = purple

From Motherhood on a Dime:

  • You can glue pictures of animals on toilet paper rolls and then act out story.
  • Make a lion from a paper plate. Paint the outside ring orange. Paint the inner circle light brown or yellow. Allow to dry. Add wiggly eyes and draw a nose and mouth. Cut small fringe around the orange edge of the paper plate.
  • Write your child’s name with a yellow highlighter.   Have you child trace the name with rainbow colors!

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




  • From Preschool Palace curriculum:  Introduce Letter B– Show your child the Letter B poster. Trace over the letter with your fingers. Ask your child to do the same. Trace the letter B in the air or use personal wipe-off boards. Make a letter B basket that includes several items that start with the letter B. Enunciate the B  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:   Using the Letter Posters, create a “Letter of the Week” Book just as you are with numbers.  Glue, draw, or stick objects to the Letter Poster that begin with the phonetic sound of the letter.  (Use the short vowel sound for all vowels.)  The ABCJLM website contains examples Letter Posters as well as crafts, food suggestions, books, and computer game links to help the child learn the formation and phonetic sound of the letter.    B is for band-aid. Child can put band-aids on the letter B.
  • 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:  B is for Butterfly.  Paint the bottom of the child’s foot to create Butterfly Footprints.  Press the feet down on paper with the left foot on the right side and the right foot on the left side.  Leave a little space in between for the butterfly’s body.  Add this to the “Letter of the Week” book for a Bb activity.

Bb Snacks and Foods:
– blueberries, bananas
–make an ark out of banana–put peanut butter on curved part (or cut slit in curved part) and stick animal crackers on peanut butter

Make banana bread.

Bb Ideas on the Web:


B is for Brown, Black, and Blue.  Review these colors.  🙂

– Use tactile letters to talk about each letter in name.  May need to create additional tactile cards if a letter is used more than once.

– Sing B-I-N-G-O with your child’s name.
Example:  There is a Mommy who has a boy and Fred is his name-O
F-R-E-D, F-R-E-D, F-R-E-D
And Fred is his name-O

Numbers: 3

Rhyme for number 3:  Around the tree, around the tree.  That’s the way to make a three!

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:   This week paint with a jumbo paint brush a rainbow on the Number 3 Poster.  Add three stickers.

Day 3:  Using the Five Little Ducks from last week, order the 0-3 ducks.

Read several well-known stories about three animals.

Book of the Week:Barnyard Dance! by Sandra Boynton

Motor Skills:

  • Day 1: Give the child a pair of Child Safety Scissors and an old magazine.  Let them cut, cut, cut.  They may want to cut out pictures of items they want or like.  This will make a mess but nothing that a broom and dustpan can’t handle! Check out Teaching How to Use Scissors for ideas.
  • Day 2: Call-out the name of an animal and have your child move like that animal.
  • Day 3: On several pieces of paper write the number 0, 1, 2, or 3.  Lay the pieces of paper on the floor.  Throw a bean bag at the papers and jump up and down representing the number it lands on.  Then spread the numbers farther apart and have the child run to the number called.
    • Gross motor skills are big motor skills (running, jumping, hopping, etc.). They require balance and coordination.
  • Letter puzzle: Fill sensory bin with dry beans. Add pieces of alphabet puzzle (wood/plastic/ foam/cardboard). Provide base of alphabet puzzle next to the sensory bin so children can hunt for all the letters to fit back into puzzle.
  • From Preschool Palace curriculum: Ball bounce dance #1. Provide each child with a ball. Dance to music on CD while holding onto the ball and not letting go. Encourage interesting dance movements like holding ball up in the air while spinning, etc. When the music stops, each child has to “bounce the ball” and let go of the ball and catch another ball. When each child has found another ball, resume ball dance, and ball drop.
    Bounce dance #2. Play music and children each bounce a ball while music plays. When music stops, stop bouncing. Start music again, start bouncing balls again.     #3 B is for Balloon Bump Dance. Provide each child with balloon filled with air. Play music on CD. Children have to try to bump their own balloon in the air and keep it from falling while dancing along to the music.  #4 B is for Bumble bee buzz dance. Play music and buzz like bees until music stops then children stop. Start again when music starts again.
  • From Preschool Palace curriculum: B is for box buildings:  Provide lots of empty boxes and let children stack/build buildings. Encourages community building/sharing, spatial skills, balance, dramatic play skills.
  • From Preschool Palace curriculum:  B is for Ball–Ball roll science. What shape are balls? Can they roll? What other things can roll? Try other items and ask if each item can roll, then try it, did it roll or not, why not? Do things that are in the shape of a circle roll the best? Items to try: circular lids (oatmeal/tupperware), blocks, ball, marble, dice, football, box, etc.)
  • B is for Bowling–take child bowling or if you have a bowling set at home, bowl at home.
