We had a lot of fun learning all about letter M! Here are a few of the activities we did during letter M week
Every week for Hunter’s letter of the week I try to create a bin full of toys that start with his letter. Hailey usually loves to help me with this.
We had to have macaroni and cheese for lunch to go with the letter M!
Hunter loves learning about where all the states are, so he really enjoyed putting together this map puzzle with Hailey.
A cute little toddler who loves to be a part of everything we do!
Hunter put M&Ms onto this letter M paper… and then we had to eat some M&Ms, of course
He loves doing these letter finds.
(Both printables are from Confessions of a Homeschooler)
We read The Mitten by Jan Brett since we did the letter M during the winter.
After we read the book Hunter acted out the story using some animal cut outs and a mitten. I have the animal cutouts from an old Mailbox Magazine, so I do not have a link to share for those. Hunter loved retelling the story and was excited that he was able to get all of the animals into the mitten.
Hunter and Harper made some cute mittens by putting tissue paper onto contact paper shaped like a mitten.
The cute finished mittens. They make cute sun-catchers too, if you hang them up on a window.
Hunter glued macaroni noodles onto the letter M.
It was a week full of fun learning all about the letter M!
Our homeschool co-op group has an education fair each year. The kids are able to pick any subject that they have learned about for their projects, so it is not just a science fair. Here are the projects that Hailey and Hunter made this year:
Hailey read Chocolate Fever by Robert Kimmel Smith. She created this board as a book report to tell all about the book.
Hunter had been working on a farm unit and created this board about who lives on the farm. Of course he had a little help with cutting things out, but other than that he did the work on his own.
I am very proud of how hard both of them worked!
We read Hansel and Gretel for our book of the week. I could not come up with a lot of activities to go along with it but here are the few things we did.
Hunter made his own little house out of candy- we put Graham Crackers on card stock, using frosting, in the shape of a house. Then we used frosting to put some yummy candy on the house.
Hunter colored some pictures from the story of Hansel and Gretel and then acted out the story, with popsicle stick puppets.
Other stuff we did:
Harper enjoyed coloring and thinking she was doing school too.
Hunter working on connecting all of the blue shapes without touching any other color.
This little cutie loves to color
Hunter busy working on his Mighty Minds manipulative.
We had so much fun focusing on The Three Little Pigs for our latest story. Hunter loved the book and requested it several times each day. Here are some of the fun activities we did to go along with the story:
He made houses of straw, sticks, and bricks. We talked about first, then, and last.
We looked at his finished project and practiced retelling the story.
The next activity was one of Hunter’s all time favorite activities ever. He had so much fun and kept playing with it long after we had finished.
First we set built a straw house and put one little pig inside. He used his wolf that he got when we went to the Great Wolf Lodge and pretended to be the wolf.
Next we made a house of sticks and put two little pigs inside.
Last we made a house of bricks with all the pigs inside.
Hunter loved, loved, loved acting out the story this way!
We also made a wolf craft and
a pig craft.
We had so much fun with The Three Little Pigs!!
