Letter of the Week ~ R


Recognize upper and lower case letter
  • Color sheet with the lower case letter on it (my oldest knows all the letters in their Capital form)
Activity
  • Letter Hunt: Throughout the week search for the letter of the week
  • Word Hunt: How many words can you come up with that start with the letter of the week? What around you starts with the letter of the week?
Adventure
  • Where can you go that starts with the letter of the week?
    • Riverside: visit down by the river to see how it looks during the colder months and walk the trails
Art
  • Reindeer
    • The picture shows a fun way to make candy canes into reindeer.  Then give out to people.  We made these by taping two candy canes together, wrapping brown paper around, adding eyes/ears/a nose.  We also made cards with elves made out of fingerprints to give with them.
    • You could also do a hand and footprint craft: using brown paint or ink pad, make a foot print onto paper.  Then using both hands in the brown make hand prints for antlers on area where the toes are of the foot print.  Add details like: eyes, ears, nose.
