We have spent the last two weeks working on the Letter N. We have been off and on with school, but trying to integrate it into our play more the last two weeks. Here are a few of the activities that we sat down to complete together.
We made a hat out of a newspaper. She got a little confused though because she kept thinking that hat started with N and not newspaper!
So we cut up some newspaper into squares and then glued onto the letter N to help reinforce this.
We found some nests in some trees and made a letter N nest. Then we took her number stickers and stuck on the letter N. I also tried to get her to identify which number was which, but she wasn’t a big fan of this game!
We read and talked about the story of Noah and the Ark, then made our own ark out of paper plates. We painted (she painted the ark and I did the rainbow) and then cut the ark plate in half and stapled on top. Then we looked through magazines for pictures of animals and cut them out to stick in our ark. There weren’t two of every animal, but she still got the idea I think.
For her birthday Sister Barbara and Sister Diane got her a really cool wooden ark and animal set, so we played with it a lot this week! Such a fun gift and I love how it worked into our learning time the last two weeks!
We painted with noodles too! At first it started out really clean and she just dipped the noodles onto the paint and gently placed them on her paper…
But then it got a a little messy when she decided she needed paint directly in the noodles and squished them all up together!
What true artist can’t multi-task. Here she is eating her noodles and painting with them at the same time! Too funny!
We move onto the Letter O next. I am excited about learning all about owls and octopus!
