Review of A-D


Last week we reviewed the letters A-D.  Here is a look at some of the activities we did to reinforce the letters.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

We used our letter cookie cutters and cut out the letters A-D.

We started putting together Hailey’s book of ABC’s using the letter projects we did during the week we focused on that letter.

For each letter, Hailey glued the letter template that she has decorated onto construction paper and then put it into a page protector.  Then she also added her letter project.  When we finish the whole alphabet I think we’ll have a pretty cute book!

Letter of the Week- Review A-D


Last week was a review week for us and we reviewed the letters A, B, C and D.

Each day we did one of these to review a letter.  I saved the letters from a project we did during the week when Hailey first learned the letter.  And I printed out pictures and words that started with that particular letter.

My mom bought these fun letter shaped cookie cutters for Hailey.  So, we used them for several projects.  For this one- we used the letters, paint and paper.

Hailey dipped the letters into the paint and then stamped them onto the paper.  (And also ate some, as you can see from the green around her mouth.)

We used the cookie cutters to cut out playdough.

And then, of course, we made cookies.  Hailey is dumping the sugar into our bowl.

And sampling some of the cookie dough (I only let her do this BEFORE I added the eggs.  Do not let your child sample cookie dough with raw eggs in it.)

Be sure to come back everyday when I will post our activities about our theme this month (fall), our color, shape and number (orange, triangles and 3) and our Bible theme (Noah).

Letter of the Week- Letter B


Our letter of the week last week was the letter B and we did several activities to help Hailey learn the letter B.

Hailey used water colors for the first time to paint the letter B.  It only took a couple of tries before she understood that she had to dip the brush into the water and then the paint and then she loved it.  She spent a lot longer with the water colors than she usually does with regular paint.  (And- an added bonus- she didn’t even try to eat it… yet)

This is the finished letter B that I cut out and glued onto construction paper.  It hangs on our refrigerator all week so that Hailey will see it a lot.

We also made a Bumble Bee out of the letter B- an idea I saw over at No Time for Flashcards.

Here’s what you’ll need: a large letter B on yellow construction paper, black and blue construction paper, scissors, glue and pipe cleaner.

Cut out several lines to be stripes on the bumble bee and two wings out of the black construction paper.

I cut out the B but left the centers of the B in so that the paper would be a bit sturdier.  Hailey glued the stripes on.

Glue the wings onto the back of the B.

Use the pipe cleaner to make antenna and thread it through the B.  I put the antenna through a stripe so that the B would be less likely to rip.  Cut out the centers of the B.

Here’s the finished Bumble Bee B, glued onto blue construction paper for added durability.

We also played hide the letter B using some felt letter B’s which I hid around our house for Hailey to find.  She also enjoyed the letter B activities at Star Fall.

Hailey colored her Letter B book.  Later we added pictures to it and then I put the book together.  (If you look closely you’ll be able to see that Hailey is wearing her bathing suit over her clothes.)

Here is our last letter B project of the week:

Here’s what you’ll need: a deep box, a piece of paper, golf ball and paint.

I didn’t get any pictures while we did this project- but I dipped the ball into the paint and then dropped it into the box with the paper in it.  Hailey shook the box around to spread the paint.  This project combined several of our themes last week- B for the ball, red for our color, and circle (ball) for our shape.

It will be a long time before we do something like this again though.  Hailey got frustrated while we were working on it and she took the ball out and threw it across the room.  This resulted in a very sad mommy and a very sad toddler as well as lots of red paint to clean up.

The finished picture.
