Welcome to a look inside our Pre-K curriculum from My Father’s World. I will be making a post every day this week giving you a look inside our home school curriculum. I will show you what educational toy we used and the corresponding activity.

Monday’s educational toy was Lauri Tall-Stacker Pegs & Pegboard. There are two separate activity cards for Monday but every other day of the week uses only one activity card.
Thinking Skills – Patterns
Today’s activity was to stand the pegs upside down and place them in a line. Miss V was supposed to make an AB pattern – two colors repeating, such as, red, blue, red, blue, etc. Once that was conquered she was to make an ABC pattern – three colors repeating, such as, red, blue, green, red, blue, green, etc. After, she was to do the same task but stack the pegs upwards instead of putting them in a line.
She caught onto the AB pattern pretty quickly but she did struggle with the ABC pattern. She started to catch on near the end, but we had been working on it for about 15-20 minutes already and I could tell it was time to move on. I think we will revisit it another time for a refresh.
Thinking Skills – Sort by Color
The first task was to sort the pegs by color so that there were 5 groups of pegs. After that, Miss V needed to place 5 pegs of one color side-by-side in the pegboard. She was to repeat it until the pegboard was filled with 5 rows of 5 different colors then add a second layer just like the first.
She found this activity less of a challenge and was able to enjoy it more than the previous. She breezed through the color sorting and enjoyed the rainbow she created with the pegboard.
When she has finished the activity card she picks a sticker and we place it in our photo album where we hold the cards. It’s our way of marking it as complete =). If you want to take a closer look at the photo album we use to hold our activity cards, check out my Pre-K Homeschool Organization post.
I hope you enjoyed looking into our curriculum for today. Join me tomorrow for Tuesday’s home-school lesson. The comments are turned off on the website, but I would love to connect with you and get your thoughts. You can either follow me on Instagram or ‘Like’ Ryan & Marsha on Facebook (or both!).
