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.

Today’s activity used Lauri’s Lacing & Tracing Dinosaurs. I should note beforehand that the lacing and tracing toy that comes with the My Father’s World curriculum are shapes, not dinosaurs. When I ordered (me being a complete newbie at this homeschool thing), I didn’t know that the activity cards are made based on the specific toys they include in the package. I just assumed any lacing and tracing toy would do so I opted for dinosaurs instead since Miss V likes dinosaurs. I haven’t really had any issues completing the activity cards with what we have, but if I were to go back, I would go with what they recommended =).
Today Miss V practiced her fine motor skills and following directions.
Here is the dinosaur lacing and tracing toy we own:
Here is the one that comes with the My Father’s World Pre-K package:
There were two lacing activities on our card today, the first was to lace the shape using a straight running stitch:
The next was to lace the shape using a loop stitch (that goes over the edge).
Miss V caught onto the straight running stitch pretty quickly, it was something we’ve worked on in a previous activity card. The loop stitch was a new concept though, one we will have to come back to. It has been a busy morning and then we went into homeschooling (as we normally do) after lunch while Miss E sleeps. I think the busy morning and then jumping into school was a little much for her, she could have used a little more down time. So, as I write our lesson is still incomplete (hence the photo of the yellow dinosaur with 4.5 loops ;)). Miss V is taking some down time to play with her Polly Pocket dolls, we will reconvene another time.
I hope you enjoyed looking into our curriculum for today. Join me tomorrow for Friday’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!)
