Letter of the Week: F

We wrapped up our F week, as usual I pulled together a variety of resources.  I include 2-3 letter of the week related activities in A's workboxes each school day, so approximately 3 out of 9 boxes.  Generally the activities cover a wide range of topics such as handwriting, fine motor skills, counting, art, math, and logic.

 He said he colored the "f"s green because "f" is for frog and frogs are green

More coloring, A loves to color!

Cute poem to read aloud

more handwriting practice

Counting fireflies 0-20. We turn over the number cards and A randomly picks one, then we count the correct number of fireflies. We don't do all of the numbers, once he begins to loose interest we move on. I include some type of counting activity almost everyday so I don't worry about always doing all of the numbers.

F pages from Cuisenaire Rods Alphabet Book. I got the book brand new and blocks at a garage sale for $5.00. Love them! Instead of writing in the book we discuss the answers together. There are prompts such as "build the letter using only two colors" and then it will ask what colors. Sometimes this takes some serious thought.

Fire truck counting/ordering puzzle. I generally offer to let him glue these ordering puzzles to paper once he has them in order. Sometimes he does and sometimes he doesn't. 

Farm animal matching with Learning Links. The matching is really easy for him but he loves playing with the learning links.
