Letter M Workboxes

These are our  Workboxes for this week!  Letter M and Number 13 work.
To get the links and resources and to see the work in action, visit our Letter M week from last year HERE!

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

 Review cards, Sandpaper Tactile Letters for finger tracing, M sound with LeapFrog Fridge Magnets, practice writing M, m and 13 in the salt box.  Using M and 13 alphabet wipe-off cards and number wipe-off cards.

 Alphie the robot learning M and 13, and driving on Road M, and using Play-doh "snakes" to make M and m on the laminated large M sheet.

 Two activities of sorting capital and lower case M's.  A monkey puzzle and sorting the monkeys by size.

M&M counting practice booklet with number cards, and a Writing Practice wipe-off booklet.

 Spelling sheets in upper and lower case with the letter tiles, a Monkey worksheet on a baking pan using circle magnets to fill in each circle for one to one correspondence.

  Number Recognition worksheet counting to 13, and a Patterns worksheet.  
And a Dice Monkey Game- Roll the Jumbo Die, the child counts the die's dots, then she puts markers on that many monkeys on the game board, working left to right row by row in proper order.  Keep rolling and counting until whole game board is filled.

 Bingo Dabbing Mm, putting the numbered Monkey cards in numerical order from left to right, and Shape Matching Monkey cards.

 Monkey Building pattern activity with mini monkey cards- build the same pattern as shown on the sheet.  A "Melon" page to learn to fold on the dotted lines to make a whole melon using Kumon's Let's Fold book.
And matching the months on a Months of the Year file folder game, from Montessori For Everyone.

A colouring sheet, and Clipboard Printing work.

Scavenger Hunt- Filling the box with items around the house that begin with M, doing an M is for Mouse puzzle with Ravensburger Cube Puzzles- I'll mix all the cubes around and Butterfly will have to find all cube sides with parts of the mouse picture and then put the mouse picture together!  And playing with M is for Magnets- they are magnetic sticks and little steel balls, even sticks to the metal container, to build different formations.  We will also enjoy doing another Magnet Craft! Painting with Magnets is one of our favs!
