Back in December I posted a list of letter activities great to accompany the letter of the week. This week I am going to be introducing them again. Since our letter of the week is M, and isn’t that fitting for our little home, everything will revolve around M. Any of these activities can be done with any letter. You may choose to do all of the activities or pick and choose which one will work best with specific letters.
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.
Do you remember a few weeks ago when I suggested setting up an area in your house to leave out activities? Here’s a refresher. If you did set up a section it would be a great place to but your letter box!
What great things will you put in your M box?
