Gentle + Classical Press: Unit 2 Activities

On our 2nd Unit, we are getting the hang of it but we still have a lot to improve. 

Scipture

I am the good sheperd. John 10:11

The scripture is similar to the previous unit. So we just continued using the same print out from previous unit.

Character & Catechism

I am patient. I put off for later what I want right now.

I followed the Teacher’s Notes and used the tune “Are you sleeping?” – “I am patient, I am patient, Yes I am. I put off for later, what I want now… what I want now.”all throughout the day every time I noticed that Audrey is becoming impatient.

Science

Fish swim in the ocean.

We had many activities about fish.

  1. Fish-themed sensory bin. This is my first try at making a sensory bin. Our bin is an Urban Kitchen food storage. We need a bigger bin! 
    We got the ocean action figure set from SM Toy section. I’ll update this when I found the link.

I can wash my face

Audrey already knows how to wash her face so I’ll just share our little win. We have successfully set up a mini personal care station for her in our small bathroom.

Jumping Jacks

We were also on the move for this week. I wanted to share how she tried to plank as part of her exercise.

I noticed that Audrey enjoys and pays more attention if there’s a mini-book as we read and sing along. 

I got the free printable for Hickory Dock here.
