Other skills we are covering: the color silver, number 11, -ick chunk, adding, subtracting, patterns, comparing contrasting, cutting, writing basic numbers and letters, vocab, and the list goes on and on. Since we were learning silver, I threw in silverware and we even practiced setting the table. (I was on a roll!)
Normally, I start off with the letter and the theme, but this time I began with silver because I was in more of a crafty mood. We made a silver collage. I found all kinds of silver crafty goodness and let them glue it down. (Tin foil, cupcake wrappers, glitter, paperclips, etc).
If you would like to purchase my Sun & Stars Thematic Unit click here. It is 39 pages and includes the above ideas for lessons with many printables.
To go with this unit as an extra, I also have a sun powerpoint that I showed my boys. It has some really neat real life pictures of the sun. Sun Powerpoint. It is higher level since I made it for my 3rd graders, but my PreK and K boys loved it.

As a FREEBIE to my blog readers, if you purchase the thematic unit from either TPT or TN, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the sun powerpoint for FREE!
Above is a picture of some of the things we made while doing "mommy preschool". I have a posterboard with paperclips poked through it. Each week they can easily change out their display papers.
Here is one more picture of an activity we did. I found a few items with unique shapes. I did a science experiment about the sun with them. I laid the items out on a purple sheet of construction paper out in the direct sun all day. I showed them how the sun fades colors. Then my youngest matched the item with it's shape left from the sun.
