Letter of the week ~ Letter M ~ M Box
The letter of the week is M, and you know we love the letter M around here. 😉 This Letter Box activity can be done with any letter, you might even choose to make it a permanent companion to all of the letter of the week activities.
what you need: a box ~ a small piece of paper ~ tape ~ marker ~ items all starting with the same letter
Have you read the series by Jane Belk Moncure? Each letter of the alphabet gets its own book. A character, “Little M” in this case, collects items starting with that letter and fills his box. You can read more about the series here. We started by reading My “m” Book. I pulled out the perfect box and taped a piece of paper to the side. I wrote an upper case and lower case M on the paper.
I quietly set the box out and added a few M items. Magnets, a microphone, marbles, money and a magazine were the things I chose. There are a lot more M things lurking around here, but I wanted to give M and M an opportunity to add things on their own.
What M items will you choose?
This post is a part of the Letter Series.
I love this idea! I am going to start making letter boxes 🙂
Love how you’ve done the box (and reuse it for each letter) I really like this idea. We used to focus on a letter a week when i was teaching. Good amount of time 🙂 Over from the kid blogger network. Can’t seem to figure out how to follow your blog though… I’ll have to have another good look. Cheers, debs 🙂
Hi Deb! Thanks for the comment. We love the letter box. 🙂 In case you didn’t figure out how to follow me… look at the top of the sidebar. There is a place to enter your email for email subscriptions and just below that there are pink buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and RSS feed.
Love the letter box idea!
I am so excited! I went to my library site to check out a couple of the ABC books and realized I have the whole set of book. I don’t know if I’ve ever read them, but now I’m excited to use them with my son this year. He is very hands on, so I know he’ll love looking for stuff to put in the box. It will help him to review the letters/sounds he knows & don’t know. Plus it will help with beginning sounds. Thanks!
