Tot School - Introduction to the Alphabet

Little M has started Tot School!! He is really excited about it. He has been asking to do "real school" like Ms. Q. So I have decided to start a Letter of the week with him.

We began with an introduction to the alphabet. He can already identify all the letters but it was still nice to start with an overview of the alphabet.



We used the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault as our spine book.











Little M made a lapbook that I found HERE.  Table activities included matching lower case and upper case letters, recognizing his name, and identifying shapes and colors.

We went to the grocery store where he learned how to choose fresh fruits. Then he made his selections and made smoothies when we got home.



He also learned the alphabet in sign language with a video from the library. It was a success!


Next week - Letter A and Apples!!
