We made our letter page and decorated it with Q-tips, which went well. But you may notice that my man glued the Q onto the paper as a mirror image of the way it ought to be. Ha! I loved it, and couldn't bear to change it when he wasn't watching. I think it captured the moment.
Our alphabet book was The Hidden Alphabet, which was really fun. It was a lift-the-flap book, and a portion of the letter would be showing that would look like something else, then when you lifted the flap, you saw the whole letter. Very creative!
Day Two: Q is for Quick
*We had races to see who could do little tasks the quickest. Getting dressed, making beds, putting on shoes, etc. It was great since this was a particularly busy day and I need him to help me by obeying quickly.
*We added NesQuik to our milk to have chocolate milk.
*We watched the Sesame Street Quickly or Slowly clip.
*We read I'm As Quick As A Cricket
Day Two: Q is for Queen
We had fun with this day, but I am sure that if my letter of the week activities were more targeted at my daughter, she would have loved that. Boys just aren't as into queens as girls are. That being said, here is what we did:
*We watched Alice in Wonderland. It has a queen, you know.* I hid a bunch of craft jewels in some dried lentils and split peas, and then we had to 'find the queen's lost jewels'
A very cosy day!
