We were so busy with the letter C last week that I didn’t post anything about school! But never fear… I have lots of pictures to share. 🙂
I will admit that I’ve been kind of sporadic with Preschool this year. Planning has been little to none. And it has been stressful to not have any sort of schedule to rely on.
However, I’ve been seeing a lot of posts on Pinterest about people focusing on one letter a week with their toddler. Now that I can do!
I also read that Montessori teachers often do not teach the alphabet in alphabetical order. They often start with the letters that are easier to write. For example, big C and little c look the same, thus less confusing to a toddler.
So without further ado, here you have it… Letter C. 🙂
Boozle (his sister’s nickname for him) had so much fun with those! If you get a chance check out her website. She has put together printables for all the letters of the alphabet and then some! And if you want to have all her printables in one place along with lesson plan ideas, you can simply purchase the curriculum!
I made those felt pages earlier on in the year after coming across this pin. Boozle showed some interest at first but not much after that. Needless to say I was a bit disappointed since I put so much time into them. (Not to mention, I thought they were really fun!) However, this was one of his favorite things to do this week. Yippee!!! He loved when I read the book to him and he would follow along with the felt pieces. The caterpillar starts out inside of the egg and pops out hungry as can be. Then Boozle would find whichever food the caterpillar was eating and would place it on the next page. He kept asking to do it over and over again. 🙂
There were so many printables to choose from on Pinterest that it was hard to widdle it down so as to not overwhelm him. I got the car with the letters on it HERE. The candy dish came from these fun printables.
Years ago my Mom gave me a Cookie Cutter Set that we often use with playdough. I was surprised at how many we had that start with the letter C. (Don’t worry, we run them through the dishwasher when we use them for cookies.) 😉
The tracing cards were found HERE. I was able to print them off, laminate them, hole punch them (love this 2-Hole Punch), and bind them together with some binding rings. They’re nice to use with dry erase markers for lots of practice.
In the bottom right hand corner, can you see him shoving a candy in his mouth? 😉
I was not prepared to make this at all. I casually mentioned it to Boozle & that’s all he wanted to do. So I threw it together using printables from HERE and HERE. I wanted it to look all pretty with scrapbook paper and such. But he was very happy with what we did. And that’s really what’s important here.
The picture above shows the front of the lapbook on the left & the back of the lapbook on the right.
And then there are all the books we read! Need to do a separate post for those. 🙂
Next up… letter M. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
