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!

A cool sensory bin, adaptable craft and many great printables are in this set of Cats Preschool Trays!

Wild Cat Sticker Scene

Color Cat Masks

Cat Sight Words

  • Our sight word discovery continues with TWO, LOOK, and BIG!

Cat Face Craft

  • 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!

Wild Cat Feeding Stations Sensory Bin

  • 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!

Numbers 11-20 Cut & Paste, What Color is the Yarn?, Graphing, Which one is Different?, Cat Story & Word Match, and Write the Room

  • 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!

Cat Dot-to-Dot

  • 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!

Cat’s Needs

  • Circle the things that cats need, courtesy of Education.com. This worksheet was good for conversation and reasoning!

Cats Book

  • 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!

  1. SO MUCH FUN!! My daughter loves ‘what’s the difference’ activities. I am pinning this to both Everything Kids’ board as well as my personal board. This would make a fun filled week!

    Thanks for sharing with Everything Kids! We hope you come share with us next week also.

    • Thank you! The mere fact that we have a cat made it more fun. Can’t say we have a pet dinosaur during Dinosaur Week – haha!

      I’ll be back to post again on Everything Kids – thank you for hosting!
