Honey Pot is 3.5 years old
Leap Frog Fridge Phonics
We introduced the letter of the week by listening to Scout's song about the letter Q.
Q is for Q-Tip Painting
Honey Pot loves her pony toys, but hasn't seen the show yet. Is there even a My Little Pony currently on TV? I'll have to find out. I did find these though, from a blog called Laura Thoughts. She had a variety of ponies to choose from too! Honey Pot chose three colors, and painted her pony with q-tips.
Too many circles to fill for her attention span I suppose. But still cute!
Q is for Quilt-Sewing
I printed a picture of a quilt onto cardstock, and punched holes around the edges. Then I tied a long piece of yarn around a small piece of pipe cleaner (I read somewhere that it serves as a nice "needle" for young hands to sew with). Honey Pot loved sewing her quilt!
First Honey Pot and I spoke out loud to help her know how to go. "Up through the green, down through the orange" and so forth.
But for the second half I let her do as she pleased.
Honey Pot loves these mazes from Education.
We also practiced writing the letter Q with another worksheet from Education.
Education also had a fun printable puzzle that Honey Pot tried out.
Honey Pot and Little M&M helped themselves to the dot markers at one point this week, so I took the opportunity to expose Honey Pot to the shape of the Q some more. The printable comes from Early Learning Activities.
Q is for Quarter Rubbings
This activity would have worked better if we taped down the quarters and the paper. But Honey Pot gave it a whirl anyway, and did pretty well!
We like to bring out the playdoh often around here. We're due to make a new batch of homemade playdoh, but for now we use these. Honey Pot made a few Q cutouts with her cookie cutter.
Then we decided to make a Q queen!
That noodle is supposed to be a crown...
Thanks for joining us in our Q unit!
