Our letter of the week last week was the letter E.
We started out our week with our usual letter paper to decorate. This week Hailey simply colored the letter E with crayons. Later I cut it out and glued it onto construction paper and posted it on our refrigerator. Each week she does one of these for our letter of the week and we always use something different to decorate the letters (colored pencils, markers, water colors, finger paints, etc.)
Then we made this Letter E Elephant, an idea I found at No Time for Flashcards.
Here’s what you’ll need: a large E, an extra piece of construction paper in the same color as your E to make a trunk and an ear for the elephant, something to decorate your E with (we used the dobbers), glue and another piece of construction paper in a different color.
Decorate the E, the trunk and ear.
The finished letter E Elephant.
Then we made this Elmo:
Here’s what you’ll need: An Elmo template printed on card stock, toilet paper roll, red paint, and something to paint with.
Paint the toilet paper roll and the Elmo template red.
Once it’s dry cut out the Elmo pieces and glue them onto the toilet paper roll.
The finished Elmo.
