March Letters: R, K, A, V, and M

It seems like it has been a while since I wrote about the letters we had done. Yet, it also seems like the month of March just flew by. For each letter, the page for our alphabet book was from Scholastic's Cut, Paste, & Write ABC Activity Pages.


For letter R we made a Rabbit by a River. I then made a rabbit craft on Friday. For this craft I used two pom poms, wiggle eyes, and the children drew some ears with a marker. We used tacky glue to glue this to our page that said "Rabbit." The children also added their capital and lower case R.




Letter K was a King with a Kite. Since we had done lots of kites during this week I didn't want to make another kite for our letter craft day. This turned out to be an easy one. I had wrote the work "Kiss" on their paper and they glued two Hershey Kisses to it. I know it was super easy, but they were excited because they all got to eat one also. (I'm not sure why, but I don't have pictures of our "Kiss.")



Our next letter was letter A. Here we had an Ape by an Apple Tree. (I have to say our ape looked a bit more like a bear, but you get the gist.) Then on Friday we made apple prints for our craft day. I have used paint for this before, but today we just used an ink pad. They made their print and added the capital and lower case A. We also printed them in green because it was our St. Patrick's Day celebration.




Next came V. Here we had a Viper on a Vine. This letter helped many of the children learn the word viper. To them it was just a snake, but by the end of the week there was not hesitation in calling him a viper. We even added viper to our V word list. Our craft was one of my cuter ideas, if I do say so myself. We made a vine. To do this Mrs. M made a line of tacky glue and the children glued a piece of yarn down. Then I had precut leaves that they glued next to it. As always, they added the upper case and lower case V.





Finally we had letter M. This page was a Mouse in a Meadow. The craft page was a mask. I had some decorative paper in the closet. I had cut some mask shapes from the paper. The children glued them down and added some eyes, nose, and mouth with a crayon. Then they glued down the M's.





So, we are just about done. We add our final letters during the month of April: N, W, X, Y, and Z. I wasn't sure I was going to make it. School is finished in mid-May. Which I know sounds crazy, but it's just around the corner.

School activities plays a vital role in developing the skills of your child and that was something I learned when I sent my child to preschool.Having such kind of activities gives a tremendous impact of your child's development. Also, school should teach the basic hygiene too. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Probably the best skill that a child will develop and embrace during an early childhood training program would be the capacity to learn..
