Last week, NJoy learned about the letter W. He enjoyed these winter activities as we also focused in on the things you wear in winter.
W Poke Page (both kids went wild with this)
I regret that the website I got these next two winter printables from has had to take down all her printables due to copyright issues. I hope that she’ll be able to resolve this, as her printables are AWESOME!
WINTER CLOTHING (2 FREE Printables included):
To expand it for him, 1- I cut out all the pictures. 2- We went over each piece of clothing, talking about what letter each began with. 3- I read the text like this: “I put on my /b/ /b/ /b/…mmm …this word starts with the /b/ sound. Which piece of winter clothing starts with /b/?”, 4- He would find it and glue it on the page.
Mitten Matching: He needed quite a bit of guidance to do this one, but he greatly enjoyed drawing the lines.
Roll the Winter Clothing: This was his first experience with graphing and he did rather well. It helped that we used our Do-a-Dot paint!
I picked several activities from Homeschool Creation’s Snowy Day Pre-K Pack. He liked the cutting activity.
I also picked several more activities from 2TeachingMommies, including this 1-10 Winter Fun puzzle.
I put magnets on the back and he put it together on a cookie sheet. I adapted this idea from Annie. It’s always fun to try things a new way. It brings such a freshness.
