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!
Hunter is 27 months old.
We have been busy having lots of fun in Tot School! We had 2 short weeks, with only 3 days of school each week. So, this post covers what we did during the last 2 weeks.
Letter M activities:
Hunter glued pom poms onto the M and the monkeys. We used this and several other printables from COAH.
Hunter lined up some Unifx cubes on the letter M.
Hunter colored the letter M.
Hunter used water colors to paint this M paper. We also used this and several other printables from 1+1+1=1.
He stamped the letter M on this mouse and then glued on some foam Ms.
I’m pretty sure the M&M activities were his favorite Although he ate most the M &Ms instead of putting them on the paper. I gave him a little pile of M&Ms and told him to put them on the M on his paper. He said, “I can’t” and then stuffed them right in his mouth hahaha.
He practiced color sorting with the M&Ms.
We made this M is for Mike (or M is for Monster).
We read 5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed. Hunter loved this book and has been singing about the monkeys ever since.
I made a Five Little Monkeys lapbook for Hunter.
The inside of the lapbook. Hunter loved this!! We had so much fun with this lapbook.
Hunter worked on his alphabet puzzle.
These rainbow pegs kept Hunter busy for a long time!
I have decided to do a couple of small sensory bins each week with Hunter.
Hunter liked playing with the beads.
The yarn was fun too.
The bean seeds were definitely his favorite.
Hunter loved the sensory bins!! They all kept him occupied for a very long time.
(I was closely supervising Hunter during the sensory bin activities as the beads and beans are both choking hazards).
Hunter had fun in our tunnel.
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots were up to this week.
Our letter this week is the letter M- and as usual I found a cute idea over at No Time for Flash Cards. We changed it just a bit, but the idea is the same. We made a Mountain M.
Here’s what you’ll need: construction paper (brown, yellow, white, blue, 2 greens), markers, glue and scissors.
Make an M on the green paper.
Give your child some markers (or whatever you want to use) to decorate the M.
While Hailey was coloring her “M” I cut these out from the other construction paper- 2 white pieces for snow on the top of the mountain, some trees and a sun.
Cut the M out and glue it onto the blue construction paper and then add some clouds (cotton), the sun, trees and snow.
Here’s the finished Mountain M.
