For the past week or so, we had been working on letter F. Phonetic sounding as we began…fffff….
We started with FISH and with none other than a very familiar song:

Once I caught a fish
One, two, three, four, five,
Once I caught a fish alive,
six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
then I let it go again.

Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
The little finger on my right.

Craft time was simple with tearing of paper into strips to make the seaweeds and into squares to make the pebbles for our little under the sea picture/aquarium. Mommy cut some fish, star fish and jellyfish and we counted them as we pasted.
Keziah somehow didn't like the idea of tearing and insisted on cutting her seaweeds out. So here we have the neater version. We talked about some words starting with f and tried to sound them out as we wrote them down. Keziah added in the eyes and decided that she wanted to draw in turtles as well.
Not missing out on our memory verse. For this week, it's John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have either life." We fished the fish with our magnets and the two kids got into a squabble who had more. Keziah was then tasked to arrange them in order.

Next, we went on to be frogs, hopping around and the kids just enjoyed it. Found this song and the kids loved it. You can add on the activity by have 5 paper frogs with different number of specks on each, keeping two the same. Then, we can get the young one to find which two were exact twins, which had most and which had least spots. Last but not least, simple subtraction of (-1) from 5 down to 0. Keziah enjoyed the picture crossword.

Never missing out on the craft. Scissor skills for Abel who cut squares of shades of green and pasted on the frog template. Keziah decided that she wanted to colour and looks like she's really grown in terms of colouring, using different shades to blend.
 Last but not least, a little talk about the life cycle of the frog.
