The Preschool Corner: Letter N
Because I felt like I was hitting my head against a wall trying to come up with ideas for us to do this week, the specific activities might be a little more vague than they have been in the past. We did do lots of other things and tried to tie them into our alphabet activities.
The creativity is overwhelming in this ABC page. Nighttime. Zachary stuck some stars in the sky and then colored it what he thought nighttime should be. If we would have done this letter before Christmas, I probably would have added some nativity stickers to make it a little more festive. :)
Fun Activities: Falling Dominoes
Our math manipulatives box also has some boards that we can stretch rubber bands on to make shapes or really anything else (and the name of these is escaping me right now...). Zachary decided to make an "N" with his and then worked on different shapes and letters.
And while we had our manipulatives out, we also pulled out our numbers to 100 chart and had a little fun counting by 10's and also from 1-30.
We did have a letter sheet collage for this week too. Here's the document if you would like to use it.
Matthew 6:24- "No man can serve two masters."
We're still using the book My ABC Bible Verses by Susan Hunt. I also dug out our cd called "Sing the Word from A-Z" and the same verse was on the cd, so the kids have been walking around the house singing the verse for me.
We practiced our letter writing this week using Peterson Directed handwriting. Since this has been working well for us and Zachary likes the curriculum too. Here's a post with a little more info for you.
Rhymes and Songs
I had every intention of practicing nursery rhymes and such with him this week...and it just didn't happen.
Next week is already in the works and I am hoping to also get a few back posts up for some of the missing letters - just need to find the time this week!
The guidelines can be found here if you need them.
Share what you've been doing in your house this week!
