Preschool Corner: Letter M ... The Mitten

Most of our activities for Letter M focused on The Mitten by Jan Brett.
{David is 3 years, 11 months old.  Claire is 5 years, 11 months old.}

Our m&m printables came from Confessions of a Homeschooler's LOTW curriculum
Our Mitten printables came from Homeschool Creations.

The Mitten puzzle.  We also read the book everyday.


 
Mitten maze.  Claire and David both loved this activity.

Mitten size sequencing.

Mitten "which one is different?"
 

Right mitten, left mitten.

Mitten letter sounds.

More size sequencing.  I think these printables came from Homeschool Share.

Playing a mitten matching game.  Read more about how that really went down here.

Mitten colors ... working on our lapbook from Homeschool Share.

Story sequencing ... which animal got into the mitten first?  Claire was good at this.

Mitten handwriting.  Since Claire's homeschool curriculum teaches cursive handwriting, her manuscript print still needs lots of work!

More lapbook coloring. These were things that started with the letter M.

Mouse coloring page.

Macaroni on M.

M&M color sorting.  A great snack too!



M&M building.

M&M patterning.  These great pattern cards came from here.

Cut & paste our M words onto the M page for our alphabet notebook.

Our finished Mitten lapbook from Homeschool Share.

And our Letter M board.  We didn't do much crafting this week.

This post is linked up to these great blogs ... check them out for more great learning ideas!
