For the past 3 weeks, Piper and I have been concentrating on the letter A and the color green. I've enjoyed taking it nice and slow with her. Although she enjoys learning, Pipe is the kind of kid that gets bored fast if you don't keep it interesting (or maybe thats just part of being 3??). So I went to work finding lots of activites for her to do that would focus on 'A' and green!
Here she is glueing things that start with the letter A onto her alphabet sheet that we hang on the wall. She cut everything out herself! I got this idea from the Homeschool Creations printables page.
Obviously, we colored it green!
Then Piper used it to form an 'A' on her playdough letter mat (also found at the Homeschool Creations printables page.)
A word to the wise: wear gloves when dying the playdough if you want to avoid having a green thumb for days....
On another day, she made an alligator 'A'.
This apple tree matching game is also from Confessions of a Homeschooler's 'A' is for Apple page and was another big hit with Pipe!
Songs For Saplings CD which I ordered recently. Each song is a verse from the Bible with each verse corresponding to a letter in the alphabet! The songs are simple yet catchy and a wonderful way to combine memory verses, music and letters that we are learning! At Totally Tots they have printables for each song in their In My Heart section.
"Keep me as the Apple of Your eye." Psalm 17:8
Finally, Piper practiced printing the letter 'A' on this tracing card (again from Confessions of a Homeschooler). I had it laminated so she could use dry erase markers and practice over and over again!
