T is for Turtle!

(MFW, Kinder, Unit 6)

Hands on letter activity ideas. Each week we try to choose one of these.
  • make the letter out of play-doh or any other modeling compound
  • make pancakes or cookies in shape of the letter
  • trace the letter in a box with salt or sand or go outside & draw it in the dirt
  • make it out of sticks (best with straight line letters)
  • make jello & use cookie cutters to make letter shapes
What we did for our turtle unit...
made turtles out of paper bowls & green foam for the legs, head, & tail; read The Tortoise & the Hare; I watched during the week to catch them using perseverance, and they did a couple of times :) ; sorted out small animal reptiles & played in water with them; talked about the characteristics of reptiles; and observed our own red-eared slider, Timmy (sorry, didn't get a pic).
