I can’t believe our first letter, of our Letter of the Week series is over. Today we are finishing up the letter A with two fun activities and a free printable. Both activities are simple to setup and my kids loved them both.
Hopefully you have been inspired this week. We will be on vacation next week and will continue our alphabet adventure when we return the second week of September. “B” excited, because I know we are! Now onto the fun for today.
A is for Animal
Suggested Song: Old MacDonald had a Farm (You Tube video by Oh My Genius)
Age Group: Preschool/Tot school
Tot School: Have child name animals and arrange them on the table as they please. Ask them questions and discus the animals:
- What does the ____ say?
- What color is the ____?
- Where does the ____ live?
A is for Airplane
A fun activity to create, play, and learn. This turned into a fun family activity because my husband joined in the fun. In no time he had made 5 paper airplanes and we where throwing them around the house.
|“Rolling faster lift up high soaring, roaring to the sky.”|
Mr. Tickles was not impressed with the graphing and went down for a nap during this part of the activity. As far as tot schooling goes my goals for him had been met. Ms. Tiger and I continued to play and learn.
This proved to be a bit difficult for Ms. Tiger because once we had the closest one, the rest where all the farthest. We decided to hold hands and walk to the farthest airplane, making sure to point to the airplanes on the floor as we passed them on our way to the farthest one. I wasn’t exactly sure she was grasping the concept, but today she told me she was the farthest away from me and that “brother” was the closest, who was sitting on my lap. I was so proud of her!
Have a great weekend!!!
