Gregory, the Terrible Eater
• Gregory, the Terrible Eater Book of the Week Ideas:
- Print the My Plate printable. Cut out pictures of various types of food. Help the child create healthy meals by gluing the pictures of the food in the appropriate areas of the plate. Create several meals. You can do the same activity gluing food on a paper plate instead of the printable.

- ABCJLM Bible Coloring Sheets - Naaman Healed
• Character Education - Thankful Activities:

- Allow the child to explain on the phone or by dictating a letter the sequence of events of her day.
- Have the child think of some things he can't do now, but will be able to when he grows older. Name some things he can do now that he couldn't do when he was younger. (Idea from Tripod)
• Letter & Number Ideas:
Weeks 27 - 28 focus on the left over characters that don't really fit anywhere. Start by creating the characters using play dough snakes or pipe cleaners and move to writing the characters on 1 1/2" tracing paper with yellow lines and green and red dots as a guide. Use the Characters Worksheet to show the similarities between the "U" and "u." Be sure to say the Letter Formation Chant as the child creates each character.
• Write Numbers (0-9), Phone Number, and Address
Using 1 1/2" tracing paper, have your child write numbers (0-9) and her phone number and address. Use yellow lines along with green and red dots as a guide on numbers with which the child is still struggling. Depending on the ability of your child, work on small sections at a time if needed.
• My Orange Book - Cut, color, and finish the book. Help your child read the lines. View suggestions...
• Practicing for an Emergency
- In Lesson 17, your child learned how to dial 911. Review this with play phones and practice calling 911 to report an emergency. Have your child tell the "dispatcher" her full name, phone number, and address. Always remind your child that 911 is for emergencies only. Remind her what constitutes an emergency.
- Have a practice fire drill as a family. Decide on a meeting place and discuss what doors to use and how to get out of the house.
