Letter S Workboxes


These are our  Workboxes for this week!  Letter S and Number 19 work.
To get the links and resources and to see the work in action, visit our Letter S week from last year HERE!

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

 Review cards, Sandpaper Tactile Letters for finger tracing, S sound with LeapFrog Fridge Magnets, practice writing S, s and 19 in the salt box.  Using S and 19 alphabet wipe-off cards and number wipe-off cards.


 Alphie the robot learning S and 19, driving on Road S, and using a wipe-off marker on the laminated large S sheet.


 Snowman Grid Game with ice cube markers and Jumbo Dice, and a Snowman Writing Practice booklet.
 

 Bingo Dabbing S, and an S is for snowman puzzle.



Spelling snowman in lower case with the letter tiles, and using the floral stones to complete the open circle snowman picture for one to one correspondence.


 Using the wipe-off markers (we love the markers from Ikea) on the laminated Counting and Graphing booklet and the Number Practice booklet.


 Snowman cutting practice sheet, and cutting and gluing a Patterns sheet.


 Snowman Building activity- using the mini snowmen cards to copy the instruction sheet pattern, and sorting the snowmen in size order.


 Clipboard printing practice work with Letter S and Number 19, and a Number 19 Worksheet.


 Colouring sheet, Scavenger Hunt activity, and I put together a Snow Lapbook for Butterfly using Jolanthe's Snowy Day Printable Pack.



All the work inside the Lapbook.


And the book report is glued on the back of the lapbook.



I drew out a cut and paste Snowman activity sheet.  Butterfly is so into colouring and cutting and gluing, so I think she'll have fun putting together this snowman on a separate piece of paper.  I drew it very basically because I know she likes to add her own details and pizzazz! 



We'll also be having fun with our Snow Sensory bin again!


Filled with Styrofoam S's!





Last year I put jars with lids in the bin to practice more lid work with the filling and spilling.
This year, the snow bin has taken a different turn!  I brought the bin out this weekend, and instead of using it strictly as a sensory bin, Butterfly incorporated the styrofoam snow into her imaginary play.  Her free play now is so creative and rich with imaginary play that she uses anything to create her story.  So this snow bin ended up being apart of her "dance recital show" first, performed for her Mommy and Daddy, and then it was snow outside of her "house".  She considers her playroom her own house, so she spread the snow all over the living room floor (ya, I know, but thank goodness it's easy clean up) and it was the "weather" outside of her house!  Complete with snow angels and all!  haha!  She keeps us amused!  I love the way her mind works.  It reminds me so much of how I played in my childhood, she really is my mini-me!!  :)
