Last week we had the most fun with the letter "P" for Hannah's preschool (I love it when there are activities all 3 girls can enjoy!) We've gone through the alphabet with a letter by letter emphasis, just to give some structure to our days and streamline activities.
"P" is for...Penguins
We learned facts about penguins and made these adorable crafts, found here. (The only change we made was to use construction paper, since we had no paper plates on hand.) My girls all love penguins and had fun trying to imitate their walk. The first time we saw penguins at the zoo, Hannah bravely remarked, "I'm not afraid of penguins, they waddle!"
"P" is for... Painting
Linsey's art is through the K12 curriculum, so I just have the younger girls to modified versions of whatever she is doing, which happened to be painting this week. (This shirt was trashed when Nattie finished! "Tummy to the table" does NOT apply in painting.)
"P" is for... Policemen
We set aside a day to read and learn about policemen, and review how to call 911. Here Hannah is making "police patterns." We even took our fingerprints!
"P" is for... Endless Possibilities
One day for lunch we reviewed the steps to making pizza and then assembled our own. Another day we ate pickles and peaches and read "Pinkalicious," a household favorite. You can explore pumpkins and pigs and potato chips, eat pudding and pie and pepperoni at the park! For more great ideas, check out Tot School, First School, and Letter of the Week. This site also has great questions, songs, and games for each letter.
"P" is for... My Princesses
Technically, they're ballerinas in this pic... but aren't they cute?!
