Unit 6: Turtle in My Father’s World Kindergarten has been completed for quite a while now, but I am so very behind! Here it is anyway!
Unit 6’s words to remember were: I don’t quit; I persevere.
Some of the things we did in this unit:
Everyday we sang the song “The Little Turtle” which is really a poem by Vachel Lindsay. We used this video to teach it to us.
I made Chandler a turtle snack!
This is the first unit that we have gotten to use our blend ladder. I think Chandler caught on very well.
Chandler is a bit further along with math than this, but we did the activity anyway. She drew numbers from the number cup and counted out paperclips.
She completed a math worksheet for the number 6.
Our next blend ladder activity had her sound out a word and write it on her own. She is so excited to learn to read!
Of course there was a turtle craft!
And how sweet are the little notes to Mama and Daddy on the turtle’s feet?
For a tactile activity I had her make both uppercase and lowercase T’s out of legos.

Oh! And we watched Turtle: The Incredible Journey on Netflix.

The Ugly Truth
As you can see, I was feeling a little refreshed in this unit, hence the snack, haha. I am still behind on posting, as well as behind on school in general. Sigh.
How to you keep from getting into a homeschool rut?
