Here’s Alicia fiddling with the words and pictures of things starting with the letter A. Although she won’t be able to match the words to the pictures anytime soon, I feel that it’s still good to expose her to the words. Anyway, I’ve not made the board on which she’s supposed to stick the words and pictures on to form a collage. Haha. Hopefully it’d be ready soon. 🙂
Another activity we did was to let Alicia do some fingerpainting. I had intended to let each fingerprint form an ant (click here for details), but due to the nature of the paint, the fingerprints weren’t defined at all. I guess that’s the tradeoff for using non-toxic, washable fingerpaints from Crayola.
Anyway, I’ve decided to let this sheet of paper be the cover for her letter A lapbook… Most importantly, Alicia had fun, so it really doesn’t matter if the activity didn’t work out the way I wanted it to.
Songs we sang in conjunction with the teaching of ‘ants’ and the letter A were:
- phonics song for the letter A (she likes this better – I think it’s because it’s new to her!)
She has this singing toy from her first birthday which happens to have the song about ants!:
