K is for King - The Lion King

K is for King which meant there were plenty of directions I could have taken this week.
I want to talk about human royalty during the prince/princess week in the spring so I decided to mainly focus on the king of the jungle or THE LION KING...

Church Theme: Keep the Commandments
Primary/Church Song: 'Keep the Commandments'
Preschool Song: 'Old King Cole'
Book: How Leo Learned to Be King by Marcus Pfister

 We ate wildebeest meat (chicken), a lion sandwich, asante sana squashed bananas, gummy worm grubs, pride rocks (I just used melted white chocolate chips & crushed oreos), & a zebra striped boston creme roll (I couldn't find any actual zebra cakes).

Tumbling Tuesday:
We pretended to be lions and worked on our roars

Word Wednesday:
K letter sheets
Lion King coloring pages

Think About It Thursday:
K math sheets
We tried to grow a gummy worm in water. I just got some generic ones from Target, but they didn't want to grow. We were checking every 5 minutes at first, then 10, then 20. After about an hour, there was barely a noticeable change. We ended up just playing around with textures & had plenty of fun trying to pick up the slimy worm. Then it was eaten...
Slimy, yet satisfying.

Field Trip Friday:
It would have been fun to go to the Living Desert or a different zoo to see some animals, but we had to postpone that to a later date when money isn't so tight, so maybe after the holidays... Instead we just delivered goodies to neighbors.

Hakuna Matata!
