Preschool Letter M

We are back this week to show you what we did for our Preschool Letter M. Things have been very busy out our house for the past few weeks, reason we’ve been absent from blogging, and we only managed to squeeze in 2 “school days” this week. Here’s a peek at our Preschool Letter M! We started Day 1 with a Beginning Sounds Basket. I filled a basket with some toys that start with the “M” sound… We had a Mickey Mouse mask, a monkey, motorcycle, milk bottle, 2 mice, a mechanic and a lovable minion. Here’s a pic of my lil’ man trying on the Mickey Mouse mask. We moved right along and brought out our playdough mats.

To change things up this week, we used Dawn DeLorenzo’s Gumball Dot It! Letter M activity page to identify upper and lower case M. Here’s a pic of my lil’ man saying “Mmmm” as he dotted away: And, final result… Excuse the confused lower case m’s at the bottom of the page šŸ™‚ Filip also did a lower case m handwriting practice page from The Measured Mom. Next, it was time for our focus number of the week: 5! As usual, Filip started by finger tracing the number and then used a white board maker once he’d mastered the tricky number 5 formation. We then used our blue gems to trace the number 5. So pretty! We also did a cut and paste Number... read more
