We are moving on in our Letter of the Week tot-school to letter F activities. I actually set this up before Thanksgiving, but am just now getting around to blogging about it. I kept it simple since it was right before the holidays, but I will give some resources at the end so you can add in more things if you want.
For each week of tot-school that I plan with the letter of the week theme, I divide into 8 sections with one activity per section for the week:
Reading & Math
Craft (typically themed with our Bible lesson)
Items Needed for Letter B Activities Week
Each week I use our Weekly Homeschool Planner pre-school pages to plan out the week and also list out the items I need for each week. Here are this week’s items:
I used the Handwriting Without Tears Wood Pieces and letter cards along with our Montessori Letter Work book for this tray.
Feather Fine Motor Task
I got this idea from Mom Inspired Life, with this cute Turkey Feathers Fine Motor Activity. You can get the directions on how to make it over at her site. If it's not Thanksgiving, you could do this without the Turkey on the front.
Frog Washing for Practical Life Activity
This was by far the favorite of all the activities, but I figured it would be. She sat for at least half an hour at at time washing the frogs and drying them off. You could add some shaving cream to the frogs to make them “dirty” if you want as well. I just left them clean though and she still did it.
