Enchanted Childhood Preschool ~ S is for Soooo Many Things

 Last week I complained about the Letter Q.... this week I am disturbed by the Letter S.  Q is sooooo limited in the activities we can do... S, on the other hand, has sooooo much potential and I only have four days... I started with a very long list (squirrel, salamander, seasons, sun, shark, skunk, spring....)  and had to settle on Square, Snake, Seurat, Sea Turtle, and Seed.

These kids were excited about the Letter S!!

S is for Snake!

 These three part Sea Turtle Life Cycle cards were perfect for "S" week!

Very sweet book about Sea Turtles!

S is for Seed!

We inspected (and even ate) all sorts of seeds. 
The children were delighted to see such a tiny tiny carrot seed.

We then planted some bean seeds, in hopes of watching them germinate!

We incorporate many "Letter of the Week" activities in the classroom!

We read a book and matched up some three part cards of his paintings!


We practiced counting "S" items

Some letter writing!

Each week we have new work in the classroom. We spruced up some old favorites, making things look "springy"!  The dry pouring beans were replaced with pretty beads.   We brought back out the velcro sticks and the frog identification work. We changed the colors in the pattern blocks.

 A new work is this color grading activity.

Another new seasonal activity was this Easter Egg matching upper and lower case letters work!

Other Classroom Fun!

Each week I join several linky parties! What a fun way to share and learn!
