Preschool - Letter C
I will let the picture speak for itself. Our letter of the week was C and our theme was cupcakes and candy. I know it is not a health conscious theme but it was really fun. We made the above craft by tracing a large letter C and then gluing mini cupcake liners to it. I like to rubber stamp on occasion so I used a cupcake stamp set I have and let the girls stamp and color some cupcakes.
I found these cute candy money cards and used them to set up a candy shop. The girls took turns being the buyers and sellers. We worked on a lot of manners (please, excuse me, thank you, your welcome) and also the numbers/prices that are listed on the candy they wanted to buy. I have not spent much time on money up to this point so it was really an introduction that was really fun.
I used the same stamp set to make this cupcake matching file folder game and cupcake memory cards. They had fun with both.
I didn't have a ton of choices here and didn't make it to the library. So here is a small list.
If you give a mouse a cookie
Twizzler shape book
Reese pieces counting book
Mr. Putter and Tabby Bake a cake (great book and series if you are not familiar with them. The author is Cynthia Rylant)
We did a few other various activities, worksheets, tracing, and of course we played candyland and made cupcakes to eat. Very fun week.
Thanks for reading.
