Once a week, I have two little girls at my house for the morning as part of an awesome babysitting swap which we are hoping to make into three time a week preschool sometime in the next few months. I’ve decided that during those times, we are going to explore a letter of the week (and sing songs, read stories, play outside, have snacks, etc.). Last week was the letter A. They now know the letter, but my idea of pasting pom poms in the shape of the letter A was a flop. They had fun trying, though, so that’s what really matters. There are no pictures of cute little products, though.
This week, we did the letter B. After singing the alphabet and reviewing the letter A, we discussed the letter B, what sound it makes, what it looks like, what words start with B. Then we covered some letter B’s with bubbles!! I cut some bubble wrap that was left over from Christmas into small squares, got out some giant ink pads, and they went to town. They loved it! They stamped the paper, the table, their faces, but it mostly went well and was a lot less messy than paint (not that I shy away from that). And now they know the letter B (well, mostly). I’ll try to post the letter of the week and our activity when they turn out well, and sometimes when they don’t. If you try any of these activities, let me know how they turn out for you!
