My involvement with homeschool is not what I desire it to be these days! It’s been so busy between my day job and my clients! I appreciate that I can at least set up school each week, whether or not I get to take part in it.
Our cat had her first visit with a new vet so it seemed like a great opportunity to have a week of Cats Preschool! As usual, we are so thankful for all the great free resources available. So here we go with 14 Cats Preschool Trays!
- Wild Cat Sticker Scene
- Color Cat Masks
- Cat Sight Words
- Cat Face Craft
- Wild Cat Feeding Stations Sensory Bin
- Numbers 11-20 Cut & Paste
- What Color is the Yarn?
- Which one is Different?
- Cat Story & Word Match
- Write the Room
- Cat Dot-to-Dot
- Cat’s Needs
- Cats Book
- This is simply a scene and the wild cats found in the Melissa & Doug Habitats Reusable Sticker Pad!
- This is so what I was looking for – a fun cat mask template! I printed several of these in black and white, and gave him a bunch of Crayola Twistables!
- Our sight word discovery continues with TWO, LOOK, and BIG!
- This open-ended craft was surely inspired by this Pete the Cat craft on Kids Soup – thank you!
- Into this large food tray we put several craftable items – wiggle eyes, trimmed pipe cleaners, pompoms, paper scraps, paper circles, pencils, scissors and glue.
- I laid out but didn’t glue a cat so he could see some ideas!
- This is the full sensory bin that accompanied my Cardboard Landforms post!
- The base of the bin is birdseed, with some rocks and such, and the cardboard landforms of course!
- We expanded this a bit by calling it a “Wild Cat Feeding Station”. We found a few wild cats, and gave them clear lids as their food dishes.
- Then for “food” we used red foam pieces, toilet paper roll pieces, and blue beads (beef, poultry and fish, I suppose).
- Finally, we utilized the TPT printable Clock Search (thank you!) that we printed out during Clocks Preschool, and drew how many of each “meat” each cat gets at each feeding.
- Our plan wasn’t to emphasize the time on the clock but it gives us a chance to talk about it!
- All six(!) of these amazing activities are from the Cats Preschool Pack from 1+1+1=1!
- For What Color is the Yarn?, I wrote down the names of the colors in the right colors on a piece of paper, as he doesn’t recognize them quite yet.
- For the awesome Cat Graphing, I did the exact thing with the foam block that I did during Woodland Animals Preschool!
- For the Write the Room activity, I used washi tape to hide the words on the walls. We did one batch one day, and other three days later!
- For all these activities I am thankful for Carisa of 1+1+1=1!
- This cute Cat Connect the Dots Worksheet is printed from Daycare Worksheets — thanks!
- My bunny loving son enjoyed the rabbit logo in the top left!
- Circle the things that cats need, courtesy of Education.com. This worksheet was good for conversation and reasoning!
- I so love this hand-drawn Cats book from this set of free beginner reader books by Frugal Fun 4 Boys!
- I printed it, stapled it, and finished the edge with some electrical tape. SUCH a cute book!
The school theme this week could have been sickness! Ugh! But this was just the right theme to keep E interested and learning, even if his body wasn’t quite cooperating.
As stated this was planned around a trip to the vet, and I hear E got a special tour of the facility! Another plus for homeschooling – I love how even the every day activities can turn into a learning experience.
Oh boy our next theme is a fun one: Lego Preschool!
