Preschool Corner: W is for Watermelon

Oh my!  I'm getting lazy here at the end of the alphabet.  W wasn't too bad, but XYZ really get the shaft.  P.S.  I did not take many pictures this week.

Our watermelon printables came from the LOTW curriculum we have been using all year.

New desk set up in the school room.  Claire has a desk on the opposite wall. 
(I scored these desks at Target for $80 each.  They are Circo brand.)

Letter W handwriting.

And here is the silly.

I used the LOTW curriculum for our daughter and LOVED it! Your son's letter tracing/writing skills are fantastic at 4 years old (great job!). Thanks for linking up this week to my Enchanted Thursdays Blog Hop.
