Letter C in Big Thoughts for Little People: ABC’s to Help You Grow 

 

 

 

    • From Preschool Palace curriculum:  Introduce Letter C– Show your child the Letter B poster. Trace over the letter with your fingers. Ask your child to do the same. Trace the letter B in the air or use personal wipe-off boards. Make a letter C basket that includes several items that start with the letter C. Enunciate the C  sound when identifying the items. Ask child to repeat or name the items in the basket.Then ask child what other items could be put in the basket.
    • Day 1:    Introduce the letters Cc using the tactile letters and decorate the Letter Poster to add to the Letter of the Week book.
    • Day 2:  Use the Letter Posters as Play Dough Mats and role the play dough into ropes and lay on the Letter Poster to form each letter.  This adds one more level of learning and is a great fine motor activity, which helps improve handwriting.

Create a personalized color book.

Color Mixing Experiment

 

Name:
– Match the letters in your child’s name.  Using tactile uppercase letters, lay out the child’s name.  Write each letter on a notecard and have the child match the notecard letter with the tactile letter.

– Sing B-I-N-G-O with your child’s name.
Example:  There is a Mommy who has a boy and Fred is his name-O
F-R-E-D, F-R-E-D, F-R-E-D
And Fred is his name-O

Numbers: 3

Rhyme for number 3:  Around the tree, around the tree.  That’s the way to make a three!

Day 1: Tactile numbers(also called sandpaper or textured)—because many 3 year olds do not have the fine motor skills for handwriting activities, trace the numbers with the child’s finger.  As the child traces the tactile numbers, be sure to say the number rhymes included in the objectives to help the child learn the correct information

Day 2:   Make cupcakes with three candles focusing on the /k/ sound of the words “cupcakes” and “candles”

Day 3: Using the Five Little Ducks worksheet, order the 0-3 ducks.

Read several well-known stories about three animals.

 

Comprehension Questions: (use when planning story and at the end of the week use them to check for understanding of the Bible story)

What did Jacob give to his son Joseph?
Joseph’s brothers were jealous of him.  Do you get jealous of your brother/sister when he or she gets something and you don’t?
What was Joseph’s dream?
The brothers’ jealousy turned into anger.  What did they do to Joseph?

Book of the Week:

  • Day 1: Read book
  • Construct roads for toy cars using painter’s tape.  Add a tree to the layout and visit the “dog party.”  Read more
  • After reading a few times, allow the child to finish the rhyming phrases.
  • Because of this book’s rhyming lines and descriptive illustrations, this book is an easy one for preschool kids to “read” out loud to others.
  • Using the Dog Puppet worksheet, create a puppet using a lunch-sized paper bag.  Have the puppet tell the story.
  • Make Human Puppy Chow
    Ingredients:
    1/2 cup peanut butter
    1/4 cup butter
    1 cup chocolate chips
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    9 cups Chex cereal (any flavor)
    1-1/2 cups powdered sugarDirections:  In a microwave safe bowl, combine peanut butter, butter, and chocolate chips.  Melt in the microwave on medium heat for 1 minute 30 seconds or until chocolate chips are melted.  Stir until smooth.  Add 1/2 t vanilla.  Place Chex cereal in a large bowl with a lid.  Slowly add the melted mixture to the cereal, folding in the chocolate mixture to coat the cereal.  Add the powdered sugar.  Place lid firmly on the large bowl.  Shake the mixture to coat the cereal with the powdered sugar.  Or to allow the kids to be able to participate more, place the coated cereal in a zip top bag.  Pour on the powdered sugar, close the bag well, check again to make sure that the bag is closed, and shake.

Motor Skills:

  • Day 1: Make “snakes” by rolling play dough and then form it into letters and numbers learned thus far.  Use the Letter Posters as a guide.
  • Day 2: Tie a string to the end of a beach ball and then to a higher place.  Practice jumping up to hit the beach ball.
  • Day 3: On several pieces of paper write the number 0, 1, 2, or 3.  Lay the pieces of paper on the floor.  Throw a bean bag at the papers and jump up and down representing the number it lands on.  Then spread the numbers farther apart and have the child run to the number called.
    • Gross motor skills are big motor skills (running, jumping, hopping, etc.). They require balance and coordination.
  • Letter puzzle: Fill sensory bin with dry beans. Add pieces of alphabet puzzle (wood/plastic/ foam/cardboard). Provide base of alphabet puzzle next to the sensory bin so children can hunt for all the letters to fit back into puzzle.

  • From Motherhoodonadime.com:
    • Math Adventure: Sort beads or other small
      objects by color in a muffin tin. Use tweezers for
      more advanced fine-motor skills.
      Count the number of beads in each color.

      fruits in all colors of the rainbow. Combine them
      together to make a colorful fruit salad!
  • From Motherhoodonadime.com:
    • Practice your phone number with your
      child. Try singing it to the tune of
      “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.”
      (Insert your number)
      331-4102, 331-4102,
      331-4102, 331-4102
