Preschool Homeschool Arctic Life Unit

I got so excited when I checked my calendar and realized we would be living in Toronto when it came time to do the Arctic life unit.  I imagined we would build an igloo in our yard, we would walk around and look for animal prints in the snow, and we would sip hot cocoa under a blanket while we watched a nature documentary about polar bears.  None of that happened :( The snow has melted, it rained, and Kylie doesn't like hot drinks.  But check out some pictures of from our classroom this week!

 One of our math wake up, warm up activities had us adding up puffins to put them in the correct houses.
***Home CEO Hack*** This is a recurring wake up, warm up game.  Print the houses off once and then use them through out the semester!

This was an encouragement elves week! During 2 of our math blocks this week, we made clothespin magnets to give to some of our friends as a way to say, "Thanks for doing what you are doing." #everythingisbetterwithglitter

I officially am in love with the Toronto Public Library system.  I can return books to any of the 100 libraries in the city.  I can place holds from the comfort of my own home.  And I just learned that some books are available as an e-reader download...on my own Ipad!

I really thought Kylie would enjoy this hand print narwhal art project, but all she could do was grimace at me and say, "Can I go wash my hand now?"

Our semester long language activity "The Legend  Of The Lost Words" is almost done.  This week, we worked on _un and _ug words.

Kylie doesn't even need me to read the instructions on this sheet anymore!

We wrapped up our arctic week by learning about penguins!

I hope you enjoyed a little peak into our homeschool classroom this week as we learned about Arctic Life.  Arctic Life is week 19 in our 30 week preschool program geared towards 4 year olds.  This unit can be purchased individually here or as part of the bundle here.  Join us week when we explore River and Pond Life.
