I was just looking through my pictures and I realized that I never posted this.

This was the last letter we did during our preschool school year- the letter R.  So, here are some of the activities we did for the letter R:

Our Crafts N Things

Hunter painted some rocks

He used a foam letter R to stamp the letter R onto his paper.

Hunter loved playing in the rice.  I am so thankful I set it up on our deck because he made a big mess!  But he had a lot of fun.

Hunter stamped Rs onto the R.

He glued ribbons onto the letter R.

Hunter pretended to be a rocket blasting off.

Then we made a rocket using a soda bottle.  We put paint inside and then Hunter shook the bottle.

Then we added some pieces to the outside of the bottle, for a fun rocket.

Hunter used his do-a-dot markers to make a letter R.

We had lots of fun with the letter R!
We’ll be back to working on letters in the fall,  but for now we’re just doing some summer activities.

Hunter colored a letter R paper.

Hunter lined up all sorts of characters on this letter R printable.

He loved stamping the letter R onto this paper.  He also loved stamping the letter R onto his hand and mine :-) .

Hunter had fun making this R is for Rainbow.

Circle Activities:

Tot School

Hunter practicing shapes with help from Hailey.

Tot School

We stamped circles using recycled containers.

Tot School

Hailey wanted to make one too.

Tot School

We sang a fun song about circles that I found in one of my Mailbox magazines.  It goes to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”
A circle is a shape that goes round.
A circle is a shape that goes round.
A circle is a shape that goes round and round and round.
A circle is a shape that goes round.

Then we sang other verses like:
[Put your hands] on the circle and go round.
[Put your hands] on the circle and go round.
[Put your hands] on the circle and go round and round and round.
[Put your hands] on the circle and go round.

We did other verses like stomp your feet, tiptoe slowly, hippity hop, etc.  We just had a lot of fun making up verses and acting silly.

Tot School

We painted bubble wrap…

Tot School

…then we stamped the painted bubble wrap onto paper to make circle prints.

Sensory:

Tot School

Hunter enjoyed playing with beads in his sensory bin.  He always ends up spilling them and making a huge mess, so I hate getting them out- but he has so much fun.  I hid some circles in his bin that he had to find.

Tot School

The Easter bunny brought playdough and Hunter has been enjoying playing with that.

Other:

Tot School

I colored inside an egg carton.

Tot School

Then Hunter sorted his counting bears onto the correct colors.

Letter of the Week- Letter R

15
Jun

Our letter this week was the letter R.  I saw this cute idea over at No Time for Flash Cards and knew that Hailey would love it.  So we made a Rainbow R.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Here’s what you’ll need: construction paper in all of the colors of the rainbow, white paper, glue and another piece of construction paper.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Cut the pieces of construction paper into strips.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Draw the R on the white paper- make sure you can see the marker through the back of the paper.  Put glue all over the R.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Glue the strips of construction paper on.  I showed Hailey how to put the first one on and then I handed her each color after that so she could put them on herself and they would be in the right order.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Cover the whole paper with the rainbow pieces of construction paper.  The turn the paper over and cut out the R.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Glue the R onto another piece of construction paper.  We used blue so it would look like the sky.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Our finished Rainbow R.
