List of 3 Year Old Homeschool Plans Week 10

This week’s Bible story is about Moses and the 10 Commandments. This is week 10.

I think I am discovering, and you probably are too, that homeschooling can be a bit expensive.  I have been trying to purchase the items suggested by and the other sites that I supplement with.  I think I am going to try to figure out a way to use what I already have at home.  Any curriculum ideas we use from other websites are surely created using materials the writer had at home–for the most part.  I’m mainly talking about books, games, music, feltboard story characters, etc.  Of course it is expected that you will need to purchase art supplies, but you can change art projects in order to use supplies you have on hand.

If you don’t have the Book of the Week, which I don’t this week, you can choose a book that you have at home.  You could go through the books you have at home and look your books up on to see what activities other moms/teachers may have shared about that book.

If you don’t have a game that is suggested, could you create a version of that game at home?  You could pick another game.  Homeschooling 3 year olds is mostly about having fun with your 3 year old, while trying to incorporate teaching  numbers, letters, shapes, colors, manners, singing, rhyming, Bible stories, character lessons…  Whenever you are playing with your 3 year old, think about what you could be teaching them in that activity.

Day 1: 10 Commandments Trains

Color and cut out each of the 10 Commandments Trains(click here to get worksheet).  Put the train in order discussing each commandment and glue onto a large piece of butcher block paper or post on a wall.  

Day 2:    Rectangular Commandments
A rectangle is like the stone tablets Moses received from God.  Cut a piece of brown construction paper in half to make two tall rectangles.  Cut the Rectangle 10 Commandments worksheet(click here to get the worksheet).  Scrunch the printable papers up.  Smooth out with your hands or a rolling pin.  Continue to scrunch and smooth the paper several times until wrinkles cover much of the papers. For the final time, smooth the paper out and glue to the brown rectangles.  Paint with brown watercolor paint.

Book of the Week:

The Boy, Dog, Frog series is Mercer Mayer’s “wordless tale.”  Don’t allow the lack of words to scare you.  Take your time to look at the details of the pictures and point out the background objects.  Allow your child to “read” the book.  This activity works to increase vocabulary and expressive language.  Mr. Mayer is also known for his Little Critter series.

Handprint Frog (Original Source Unknown) 
Cut a large circle out of green construction paper.  Cut two small circles out of white paper for the eyes and glue on the circle.  Draw two dark spots in the frog’s eyes.  Draw two tiny lines for the frog’s nose and a line for the mouth.  Draw around, cut, and glue two handprints for the legs.

– Focus on the /f/ sound in the word “frog”

– Hop around like a frog.

– Have your child draw a “book” and tell you the story.

Suggested books from Motherhood On A Dime:


Using the tactile letters in the child’s name, 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: This week glue on construction paper to decorate the Number 5 Poster.  Add five stickers.

Day 3: Create a handprint and footprint and count five toes and fingers.  You may want to use this to begin the Handprint and Footprint Calendar for a great Christmas gift..

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

What does the word “commandments” mean?
Why did God give us rules?  (To help the people learn how to obey God, be happy, and to know how to treat other people)
What are some of the rules that you have to follow?
Why do you have rules?

Fine Motor Skill:  Carve a pumpkin making the face out of various shapes learned so far.  Allow your child to dig out the seeds and count out groups of seeds.  Have your child pick up the seeds using his thumb and index fingers.  Incorporate this activity with The Pumpkin Gospel book.

Gross Motor Skill: 
Place pillows, couch cushions or anything soft on the floor for your child to crawl over.  Have fun making mountains and climbing peaks!  If the weather is nice, rake a big pile of leaves.  Pretend you are Moses climbing Mount Sinai to receive the 10 Commandments.  Act out the narrative between God and Moses and discuss God’s holiness and goodness.

Chore: Train your child to wash the glass in your
front door or windows. The large circular
movements used when you wash windows are
excellent for large-motor development.

Cotton Ball Busy Bag: Put cotton balls in an egg carton or ice cube tray. Use tweezers or tongs to take them
in and out of the container.
