Letter G Workboxes

These are our  Workboxes for this week!  Letter G and Number 7 work.
To get the links and resources and to see the work in action, visit our Letter G week from last year HERE!

Also, check out the books we read for Letter G week!  

 Review cards, Sandpaper Tactile Letters for finger tracing, G sound with LeapFrog Fridge Magnets, practice writing G g and 7 in the salt box.  Using G and 7 alphabet wipe-off cards and number wipe-off cards.

 Alphie the robot learning G and 7, using the Letter Builders to build G and g, and driving on Road G.

Gumball Building- building the same gumball pyramid for spacial concepts, a Shape Review Puzzle, and using Play-doh on top of the large laminated Gg page to build the letters.

 Pushpin poking-- with this Giant Push Pin with the paper on the carpet, Butterfly pokes holes along the letter lines for a pre-writing activity.  A Gumball Writing Practice wipe-off booklet, and a Gumball colour match-up puzzle.

 Sorting capital and lower case G's, two separate activities; and Gumball Graphing with circle stickers.

Spelling gumball in upper and lower case with the letter tiles, a G is for gumball puzzle, and counting gumballs to go onto each number labelled gumball machine card.

Clipboard writing practice with a Pencil Grip for proper writing finger positioning.
In the clipboard we have writing G, writing 7, Letter Find worksheet, and circling all the G's in the Gumball story.

 Bingo Dabbing G, cutting practice sheet, cutting and gluing a patterns sheet.
I must say, in Butterfly's Preschool year last year, she didn't catch onto the pattern worksheets in this curriculum, which is understandable for a 3 year old.  But this year in JK age, she has caught on to basic patterns and knows them well!

 Gumball sheet used on a baking pan with the homemade magnet pom poms- putting a pom pom on each circle.  Sorting the gumball machines in size order, and a Colour by Number worksheet.

Last box has the usual Scavenger Hunt, finding things to put in the box that begin with G, and Hopscotch numbered cards- calling out a number and hopping on it!

    I love your ideas but I figured out that trying to do this for my daycare kids has been costly since I have to get multiple of everything. And I thank you for posting it, it still helps me out with ideas.
