Our worm book of the week was this one:
I printed these great sight word worm printables . I put the words that D has learned already and we played "Wiggle to the word"....I call out a word and he has to wiggle to the correct one like a worm. It's harder than it looks!
We read the booklet "A Week With Worm" from No Doubt Learning. It reviews the days of the week, and introduces:
- capitals at the beginning of sentences
- ending punctuation
- rhyming words
- and other punctuation ideas.
It's also really cute! D had a lot of fun using the drawing prompts in particular. Then we made it into a "fancy book" at his request. I have tons of scrapbook paper so this was a fun way to use some up and make a keepsake.
Just in case you'd like to put up the days of the week on a wall or bulletin board when you're practicing, I found these worm days of the week printables as a go-along.
He also did a fun great earthworm measuring activity and of course we had to try out the great playdough mats that STEM Mom has made! Don't worry, we'll give you a full plan with all the links and pdf downloads at the end of our series so you can get these too.
M also came to me one day last week with a suggestion for a science experiment. She wanted to see if using earthworms really does help plants to grow better. Since I have an overabundance of spider plant babies at my house, I was more than happy to oblige. Plant A is with worms; plant B has no worms. She'll measure every week and graph it.
What wormy fun have you been up to lately?
