Mixed emotions finishing LHTH....

Postby moedertje » Wed Jun 06, 2012 8:51 pm

The 3rd time around doing LHTH was an incredible blessing. Knowing what to expect, knowing why everything is done, having a girly spin on the guide. Just being confident a 3rd time around and through the help of HOD! :D :D :D

My dd got real girly with her alphabet and her crafts. She had such fun with school and begged me to even take her school work on vacation. :D :D Worked on summer vacation since we live in Florida and were staying in the state. Did not work for Winter Sport..lol :lol:

It was a bitter sweet ending when I was done with LHTH with her. I won't need it anymore :cry: :cry:. Saying "goodbye" to Pre-school, but I am so glad that there is such rich teaching ahead of her :mrgreen:

DD did LHTH at age 4 for Pre-K. We did it full pace, as written, and she enjoyed very much. When we started off she already knew the sounds of the alphabet. The only thing we added in October was TRL upon her request :P :P :P

Here are some pictures: (Turned out, I have a million and 1 pictures :lol: :lol: :lol: )
All excitedly we started with the letter A and as you can see dd was beaming to start LHTH. We put punched out apples with real apple seeds and we did animals.
She had fun doing her memory verses from the devotion book and measuring them to herself, and with her number book, cutting and pasting.
Walking her doll on the letter A for her letter activity. She used dolls, "My Little Pony", coins, etc. etc.
Finger Play: A-A-Adam, can you believe? God made the albatross to fly, you see!
While on vacation we did unit 4-letter D, her craft of showing how Jacob tried to hide to pretend to be Esau, it's better to be yourself!
Jumping over the letter D than off to the pool..
Insisting on writing her own numbers on her number page!!!
And copying the color word on the color pages, hoping the joy for writing remains forever! :D
Writing letters with colored ice, pop sickles
Our "Keepsake" craft book
Jonah and the "Big, Girly Fish". She colored and painted and when I returned the fish had eye-lashes! :lol: (she told me it was girl fish!!!)
Unit 33 A picture of the bright light that shone from heaven when Saul met Jesus as His savior
Blocks sorted by shape, color and size!
Skip counting by 4's
Writing has become a favorite of this little girl of mine, just from doing the activities in LHTH!
Pictures of our A-Z display:
Just going through these pictures made my heart glad for such a great Pre-school program and a most wonderful pre-school year and sad that I am not doing pre-school again :cry:!

A big hurray for HOD for having made my Homeschool journey a blessing from day 1..... :D :D :D

Lovely girl and beautiful artwork! :lol:
I'm delighted to see the girly spin, looking forward to seeing what my dd does when it's her turn.
Thank you for sharing. You've been such a blessing and encouragement to me

I know what you mean about having bittersweet feelings at the end of LHTH. I was so sad to finish it with my fourth little guy, as it was our last trip through it with our little ones. :cry: My kiddos are just growing up too fast for my liking, yet it is amazing to see them growing into young men. :D

Thanks so much for taking time to share! :D I loved the pictures!! :D

The letters with the items glued on? Those are in in each unit. I am not sure if she followed exactly what the guide said to use each unit, but there is a day each unit where they glue tor stick things to the letter of the "week." For unit 1, it is the letter activity on Day 3.
