D is for dog

After reading Go dog Go, We chose “Dd” for our letter of the week. What better way to tie the two together then to turn the letter “D” into a dog.

I created giant letter “D” printed it out and then cut it for her. I also prepared all of the pieces before hand. Since Strawberry is only 3 and she hasn’t mastered scissor skills yet, I’ve found it makes everything much easier if I have everything cut and ready to go for her.

I only had a template for the giant “D” the rest of the pieces I just drew on construction paper and cut them out.  You can download the Giant letter D

With everything prepared ahead of time it made it very easy when it came time to do the craft. I handed her the supplies, helped with glue when she asked and gave her ideas on where she might want to place pieces, but the rest she did herself.

Strawberry has become very independent with gluing and placing with minor help and clues. Here is the final product.

In chemistry we learned about bases and went to the store but a base hunt, to find items in the store that had bases in them.

The girls had fun at the library with a robotics lesson followed by fun building robots.

Strawberry played in our indoor sand castle for sensory play. She also went digging for the letter A.

Strawberry also practiced matching her upper and lower case letters.

In English we talked about the importance of adjectives in sentence. We also played a fun adjective game.

While the older girls worked on adjectives Strawberry worked on writing her name and her letter craft, A is for Alexa.

Also with our school year ending soon, I started to plan and research for what we will be doing next year.

F is for Fish

Our letter of the week this week was F, so we chose to do F is for fish for our letter craft.

I printed this f is for fish template and traced it onto yellow, white and black construction paper. I cute out the pieces and place all the pieces in a gallon zip lock. I prepare all of our letter crafts to make the craft time run more smoothly. This allows Strawberry to jump right into the craft and not have to wait for me to cut something out.

B is for Bear craft

After reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?  We chose “Bb” for our letter of the week. What better way to tie the two together then to turn the letter “B” into a bear.
