Tot School: Letter W
Our Tot School involved many letter W things — water, windows, walruses, whales, winter, worms. Almost ready for a new alphabet, looking forward to it!!
Hide me under the shadow of Your wings. Psalm 141:2
We love the songs from Songs for Saplings (affiliate links are used). We use 1plus1plus1equals1‘s coordinating ABC Bible Verses posters which have helped him learn all 26 verses! And me too! How wonderful to know all of this scripture!! Hide it in your heart sweet boy <3 (and mama!)
Letter of the week: Ww
We put up our bible verse, our Ww small poster from Tot School, a Ww sign from my Kindergarten teaching days, and these wonderful Montessori sandpaper letters above John’s table. We put these up on the wall so he could feel the letter every morning and trace his fingers on the letter. Our bin has his printables in an envelope, all ready, along with his poetry books and bibles.
We also have a poem for the week — this is The Wind by Robert Louis Stevenson — in a collection of free poems with beautiful art I made.
Here are some W magnets he and May played with this week.
“Stations” on the kitchen table have been working very well for John. Check out the Learning Stations at The Measured Mom which is where I got this idea. John loves this the variety — I am looking forward to changing to a new alphabet soon!
Watercolor W is for Winter! Some magnet dot fun.
This wonderful handwriting sheet is free from The Measured Mom with dry erase markers!
John is playing with Lego Duplos all day, every day. This is mathematical counting and color sequencing work! Busy Bag Printables from All Our Days.
Finding Who Lives Where!! This is a wonderful memory game!
We made a W is for Whale Felt Alphabet Craft!
We are making an alphabet book with uppercase letters. We are starting it now, but we’ll start the alphabet again after our Tot School ends with Z. I will save these and put them in a “book” — probably just with three pieces of yarn — for him to remember each letter! We are using printables from The Unlikely Homeschool. This is simple — just decorate your letter with something related to that letter.
This week it is W is for Worms! We stamped the W with apples and made little brown worms crawling out of the apples. John loved this an got very creative: “The worms are crawling!”
