We have done Alphabet work before, but I have been searching for a more organized way to do things, so that I could plan ahead and have things ready and available for her.
So I put together a LETTER BUS!
Every few weeks, I am going to focus on certain letters and make, create or find fun activity ideas that revolve around these letters.
Since we have been working outside trying to clean up the garden bed lately, I figured we might have some fun learning about the letter Gg.
In the next few weeks, we will be focusing on letters Gg, Ff, Ss, Rr.I have pulled it together (a little) and created baskets of learning activities for her. For now she has a Math Basket, a Writing Basket and an ABC Basket. (I am still collecting fun art materials for an Art Basket.) I have gathered activity ideas and materials to put in each basket.
Dry Erase Books, Counters, Counting Mats (Actually, I am still collecting things for this basket)
Writing and ABC Baskets:
Writing Basket: Name sheets, Letter Writing sheets, Notebooks, Different Writing Tools (pens, pencils, markersm crayons), sentence strips
ABC Basket: ABC Chart, Dry Erase books, ABC stickers, Alphabet Flashcards, Letter/Sound sheets, Writing Tools, Alphabet Games
Beginning Sounds Phonics Train by Lakeshore
Wooden Alphabet Puzzles by Melissa & Doug

I am hoping that this will help keep activities organized a little. There is SO many fun ideas out there, sometimes I get a little overwhelmed... Hopefully this will help keep me a little focused so that I can plan ahead... just a little. Because I know there is always going to be a fun idea that comes from out of nowhere that we just HAVE to do....
