Reading the Alphabet Letter M
This week has been a little hectic, with homeschooling starting back full-time. And while we’ve done all the activities for Letter M, I am not posting as many pictures and details as I did for lessons 1-3. On the download, you’ll find a 5-day lesson plan; which will show you the order in which we did all of our activities. You’ll also find directions for each activity mentioned in this post.
LETTER M READING ACTIVITIES
The Letter Mm Reading Activities include a reader for the child and a pocket chart version. The reader can be printed in black & white or in color and so can the pocket chart pictures. NJoy chose the b&w version again this week because he wanted to color in his own pictures.
SIGHT WORD: I
There are several activities include with the sight word I.
- Sight Word Poke Page
- Sight Word Maze: I place these mazes into plastic sleeve protectors and then put them in his handwriting notebook. He likes to do them over and over.
- Sight Word Search– find I on each row.
- Sight Word Memory Match-This week, I added another sight word activity, which reviews all the sight words done so far in Lessons 1-4 (a, the, see, & I). I chose Memory Matching because it starts with an M! I drew the orange squiggles on the back of the cards before I cut them apart.
- Word Wall-At the end of the week, we placed the new sight word on his sentence strip word wall.
PHONOLOGICAL AWARENESS ACTIVITIES
Syllable Count & Clip: Count the syllables in each picture (from the M reader) and clip the correct number.
Cut & Paste Rhyming Activity (with MOON); these are similar to Jolanthe’s Alphabet Cut & Paste Sheets.
LETTER P PRINT AWARENESS ACTIVITIES
Moon Print Awareness: I was excited about our print awareness activity this week, as I integrated some craftiness into it. I’m not a fan of crafts, so it takes A LOT of effort for me to do them!
He drew his moon and stars on black construction paper with a white crayon. (I tried to encourage him to draw his stars to look more like a star shape, but he declared, “Mom, real stars in the sky don’t look like that! They look like circles!” Point taken.)
M is for MATCHING VOICE TO PRINT: Each time we read his readers, I made a big deal about his touching each word as he said them. When he would, I’d say something like, “Wow! You do such a good job matching your voice to the words!”
LETTER M FINE MOTOR/WRITING
1. M is for Mittens Tracer Page- This tracer page is placed in his Handwriting Notebook so he can do it again.
LETTER M MATH ACTIVITIES
Letter Mm Grid: Roll the die, count the dots, and put that many “marbles” (I used the colored jewels that look like marbles). If you’re going for another M manipulative, marshmallows would also work. I first saw these grids on PreKinders. She has a lot of cute themed ones on her website!
