A few months ago I promised Princess that we would do a Princess Themed Learning Time. This week I made good on my promise. Next week we'll be studying Knights to balance things out for the boys. I really had a fun time planning this unit and today, it seemed the kiddos really liked it too.

A Princess Race
Source: I created this activity, but was inspired by an activity we did during our transportation unit a while back. For your free copy of the printable, click HERE. There is a blank template available as part of the printable if you'd like to write something else in the blanks besides the sight words given. The printable could be used for math facts or whatever.
The kiddos will cut and paste the pictures in the proper places to complete the patterns.

Stamping with Princesses
The kiddos will make royal works of art using the stamps, colored pencils, ink, and paper provided.

I don't have a picture yet, because we haven't made them, but we will be making crowns using oak tag, glitter, sequins, crayons etc.
Norman Rockwell's Americana ABC Book
We'll be reading through this children's book, looking at several different works by Norman Rockwell. This really is a beautiful book. I highly recommend it.
I came up with all of the activities below according to our theme, however I know several have been used and thought of before in other contexts, due to the Montessori curriculum.
Getting Ready for the Ball with Cinderella
Using Chopsticks Like Mulan
Snow White's Poisoned Apple
Pouring Tea with Belle
Rubbing the Lamp with Jasmine
Building Sleeping Beauty's Palace
Tweezing Princess Things
I See Spinning Princesses
Spanish: We will continue practicing our letters of the alphabet as well as introducing numbers 1-10.
Music: We will continue to practice songs from last week, as the kiddos still don't quite have them down. We will also be playing some games using Disney Princess songs, like guess what Princess sings this etc. They LOVE their princess songs!
Books for the week include:
1. What is a Princess? Step into Reading Step 1 Book.
2. Not All Princesses Dress in Pink by Heidi E. Y. Stemple and illustrated by Anne-Sophie Languetin.
3. Princess Pigsty by Cornelia Funke and illustrated by Kerstin Meyer.
4. Sofia the First by Catherine Hapka and illustrated by Grace Lee.
We will also be reading many books by our Author of the Month and let's not forget those Disney Princess story books!
My Princess is a VERY happy girl this week!
