B is for Butterfly!
(amongst other things)
Each Thurday we do an ABC Twiggles letter craft for the focus letter. Thus, I usually use the paper craft as our theme for that day. Never have I done butterflies this late in the year but you know what...it was a perfect cheery thing to do on this very dreary, rainy day! :-)
Some of the other planned activities that we did today....
Sensory: Bird Seed
I gave them a choice of /b/ sound sensory materials today and this is what they chose. It's a nice material to work with and will go through funnels too (though they chose to use the paper towel tubes instead).
Melissa & Doug
I chose the /b/ sound words to use today. Only 4, just about perfect for timing and interest. Loved hearing about the letters recognized and the realization that the words all started with b!
Roller Painting Butterflies
Oh, and this last one is just seasonal...I was going through the closet and seen that I had completely forgotten about having this wooden jack-o-lantern matching set, purchased from Oriental Trading. This is a very large set so I only choose 10 pairs to work with. Easy enough for the older child. Really need just 3-5 for toddlers. Before I put something like this on the shelf for free play, I like to "introduce" it first.
