I want to be transparent, we did none of the ‘C’ activities on our list last week. Our schooling was put on hold as we dealt with the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. While our family was blessed to still have a safe and dry home, many people in our community were not so fortunate. Once roads were passable and our power restored we worked with our church to help those that needed assistance. We are still helping but hope to fit in both some C and D activities this week to get caught back up. I’d love to hear what you did for letter C.
This week we will be using the printable cards (free download below) in a sensory bin, eating “D” snacks, sorting through the cards from all four of the letters, and doing some dirt themed ideas. My four year old loves dirt and will be thrilled to do anything that involves playing in dirt or getting dirty. I think we may use dirt for our sensory letter activity by doing a ‘dirt’ tray instead of a sand tray and letting him trace his letters.
Please share your ideas for letter D in the comments below!
Letter D Snack Ideas:
- Dirt Cake
- Dolmas (This may be a new food for many preschoolers but my son loves these stuffed grape leaves and they can be found in many grocery stores).
Letter D Extra Resources:
Letter D Optional Activities:
Nature study on dirt! (Use a magnifying glass to look at how dirt is different in different places or what you can find in the dirt. You can even experiment to see what happens to the dirt if you add water or if you sift it through a sieve. )
Dashing… practice running fast, maybe even set up some lines and time yourselves
Dates/Days (You can begin working on calendar skills or days of the week. There are some really fun songs to help learn the days of the week.)
Dollars (You can begin talking about money and the concept of dollars and coins.)
Don’t forget to download your free letter D sensory bin pictures to use this week!
