{Totally 3} Letter M

Written by Mommy Cameron | Homeschooling

So if you haven’t notice, there has been a long absence in Totally 3 posts.  Back in March, after I worked to create a Yummy ABCs for Thing 2, he really lost interest in school.  It was also about that time that I decided we were going to enjoy the wonderful weather and start back at to school when it was hotter.

Thing 1 started back to school in May, and I thought that Thing 2 would follow, but he didn’t until now.  So fo the first time since March, Thing 2 has done school and he seems to actually remember some of it even after a couple of days.

However, I had to create some new activities for Thing 2, because he was not interested in learning about food anymore.  So with Thing 2’s new interest in animals I created some animal based letter activities.

Math:
For Thing 2’s math I am loosely following the Horizons Kindergarten math.  The first few lessons were based on counting to 10, practicing the direction words top and bottom, and writing the number one.  I used the monkeys for counting practice.  I used a combination of the tree and monkeys to talk about top and bottom. Thing 2 completely nailed all of these things.

Letter Identification:
We did a few activities where Thing 2 had to locate the letters M and m.  The only time we he ran in to any problems is when it came to the letter w.

Letter Sounds:
One of the worksheets I created was designed to have Thing 2 circle the objects that started with the letter m.  Thing 2 rocked this activity.  He had completed half of the worksheet before I had finished explaining the directions.

{HERE} are the printables I created for the letter m.

What has your three year old done this week?
