Letter of the Week: C

We did a couple of fun activities for "C" Week. We learned about circles, cars (a big hit with Zander), caterpillars, clouds, and colors.

Making the caterpillars was a great activity which allowed us to combine several "lessons" into one. (Circles, colors, caterpillars.) I cut the circles out the night before the activity. If you are more ambitious than I am you could let your child trace and cut them out. (Maybe it's not a question of ambition as much as it is bravery. Ahem.) Zander had a lot of fun gluing the circles together to make his caterpillar. He got to pick out the antenna color and the eyes. It came out pretty cute, if I do say so myself. I love the eyes he picked out!

Doesn't he look proud?

Our second big activity for the week involved making clouds. This was a very simple project which only required three supplies: blue construction paper, glue, and cotton balls. I didn't take any pictures of the actual activity, but this was our "end of the week" pic. You can see that we also learned hair cut this week if you compare it to the pic above.

We talked about the letter "C" every time we played with cars, while we watched the movie Cars, and when we had cookies. Some other ideas that can be incorporated into "C" week: cat, carrot, Cinderella, cactus, candycan, chalk, cake, and many more!
