Letter M week was full of all sorts of fun! Addi learned about everything from monkeys, to mountains, to magnets, and much much more! Here is our curriculum for the week and a few pictures from some of the activities we did.
I forgot to take a picture of a bunch of the books we had borrowed from the library. Here are the ones we had left when I finally remembered to pull out my camera.
One day we made capital M Mountains.
Another day we made capital M Mosaics.
We made a lowercase m with marshmallows and ate a few for a snack too.
We played with magnets. This was one of the 6-7 games we played with magnets. Addi thinks they are just the neatest thing ever.
I love how in this picture you can see her sounding out the letter m.
We did lots of little monkey activities. Her was a mask she made.
We also played some matching games. For this particular one, I gave Addilyn a set of children's playing cards with the numbers 1 though 13 (pretty convenient since our number of the week is 13) and had her match the characters on the cards.
I also made another matching game from scrapbook paper and had Addi match the mittens together.
Addi painted a mouse.
And then we made a mouse.
Addi painted on a mirror with shaving cream which was also really fun. Well, it was fun after I found her a paint brush. She didn't like the feeling of the shaving cream on her fingers today.
We did a little marble painting. Thank you Pinterest for the idea on this one!
And least, but not least, we took out letters from letter l week and we learned about the mail. Addi matched the letters with their correct envelope. We addressed the letters, put a stamp on them, and then took them to the post office. I wanted to see if we could get a tour of the mail center so the kids could see the process, but you have to contact the local postmaster several weeks in advance to do that. Maybe next year!
