Nifty N!

Here's our completed Letter N activities!

Butterfly learned the sound of N and sang the Alphabet song with her LeapFrog Magnetic Alphabet Set.

Putting the next number on our Review Chart

Putting the next letter on the Alphabet Review Chart- this helps a preschooler know where the new letter IS in the Alphabet.  We always sing the ABC's with this as well.

Building N and n with the Letter Builders.

Then decorating the N's with nest and number stickers, and pieces of newspaper!

Sorting Capitals and Lower Case letters.
 At first, starting out in this curriculum, I would tell Butterfly that the big letters are the "Mommies" and the little letters are the "Babies".  "Match the Mommy with the Baby."  It was easy for her to understand.  But now half way through the alphabet, I am finding myself using the proper words of "Capitals" and "Lower case" and she is understanding now that the capitals are the big letters and the lower case are the little letters.

 Giant Push Pin poking the Letter Nn.  On carpet, poking holes along the lines to practice the writing movement of Nn.

Learning to spell Nest.  This time all the capitals and lower cases letters are mixed together in one pile, Butterfly was able to match the letters correctly to spell the words.

Our fun messy art project this week was Painting on a Mirror!

 Butterfly loved this!
It's like painting a Reflection!

 She couldn't resist again... paint brushes down, hands in!
