Last week Mary and I did letter A but with 4 kids, we didn't remember to get the camera out!
This week I did letter B and reviewed letter A. The girls had fun and they are loving it!
This week we made bird feeders with Cheerios. I got this idea from The Crafty Crow who has all kinds of great blogs listed with crafty ideas from other people. I just LOVE this site and want to share it with you if you haven't already seen it!
Just take pipe cleaners and have your child(ren) put cheerios on them. Make circles and attach. Easy and Fun! Great for hand-eye coordination for younger children!
We also practiced "writing" letter B. The 4 year old girl I have actually wrote them and I had the other two trace a capital B and a lowercase B on paper and then air.
We then read Troubles with Bubbles and blew bubbles.
Next we did a craft where we made a bumblebee and sang the Baby BumbleBee song.
We had lunch with bananas. Then after eating the bananas for lunch, I found this blog with *THIS* GREAT idea which I am going to do anyway on Monday as review of B lol...you can always squeeze it in somehow! During lunch I had them listen to the little Leap Frog Magnet Fridge toy that plays the letter and sings a song about the sound it makes. They took turns pushing the magnet and playing it.
Every word we heard throughout the morning I'd say...Baby! That starts with B! or Balloon! That starts with B!
We listened to a Book on CD of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. The girls loved that!
Finally we danced and sang Laurie Berkner's Buzz Buzz BumbleBee song!
What a fun day! The girls loved it!
