Letter E | Elephant & Earring + Giveaway

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Summer is 40 months old.

I've been looking forward to our Letter E week from the very beginning.  I knew right off the bat I wanted to take a different approach and incorporate a "dress-up" week with the earring theme.  Summer, just in the last few months, has become obsessed with all things girly!  I knew she would love it.  I pulled most of her dress-up outfits, shoes, jewelry and such to have for pretend play while we did her weekly activities.  She was a pretty happy little girl!

Here's our set-up...

She dot painted, though she's beginning to lose interest in dot markers.  So we will definitely be changing things up next week!

We used "diamonds" to make the Letter E.

Tracing her letters and working on shapes.

All my girls LOVED our sensory bin filled with Look & Find pieces!  I used "jewels," "diamonds," "pearls" and several pieces of jewelry.  You can download a free set here.

She was fascinated using glitter for her letter craft!

Summer requested purple playdough this week and I added a touch of Jasmine oil to perfume it a bit.  Instead of making snakes to form her letters, she wanted to roll bits of playdough into balls.

And, lots of elephants with the playdough cutter.  She thought this was so neat!

This shape puzzle is a favorite.

Worked on an animal puzzle identifying the animals...

We reviewed the letters she's learned up to this point.  This still needs some practice, but she does remember some sounds which is a very good thing!

And, lots of bead lacing.

    1. She loved it! A lot of our activities weren't planned just kind of happened but those are usually the best.
