Yes, we’re finally done with the letter T! It’s only taken a month…but that’s what I get for being so sporadic recently in our schooling. In a week or so, we’re going to really buckle down and I’m praying my body will hold up. 🙂 It’s the hunger that gets to me the most…seems like every hour or so, my body cries out for food, food, food. I’ve been EXTREMELY hungry this pregnancy!
So, T is for turtle and here are some of the things we did with the letter T:
These turtle activities came from Confessions of a Homeschooler.
Turtle Clip Cards: This is NJoy counting to 5 to make sure we have them all there.
Do-A-Dot T (also from Confessions)
If you don’t have Do-A-Dot paint, GET SOME! I got mine at a local craft store with a 40% off coupon. I love that it doesn’t make a big mess. He also loves doing this. After he dots the letter, he usually decorates the rest of the page, using every color available to him, of course!
This is a craft I remember ALuv doing in pre-school 2 years ago, so I looked online for something similar to remember how to do it!
read skimmed Turtles by Trudi Strain Truert (from the library) so we could look at the pictures and see what colors a turtle’s shell could be. At first, NJoy wanted to paint the paper plate red, but he soon discovered that’s not a common color for a turtle’s shell. I did let him paint with his beloved red when we were all done with our turtle! 🙂
T is for Truck
I love these puzzles! I’ve had them quite a while and they were given to me by a retired teacher. I did come across some in Wal-Mart the other night. These puzzles are a great intro to the 24-piece puzzles because they’ve got boundaries and lines where the puzzle pieces go. NJoy really likes doing these. He still needs a bit of guidance, but it’s good problem-solving.
