This time I was in charge of introducing and reiewing the letter M. Abby helped with the preparation work. One of our student's names begins with M, so we labeled her carpet square for her.
|M&M's are fun and motivating. This printout was from confessionsofahomeschooler. I love her http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/preschool-printables|
|Notice how precise her placement is. She made sure to match the color and the position of the letter.|
|I saw this marshmallow painting idea somehwere, on pinterest. I had her paint with marshmallows and white paint.|
|Then we used the marshmallows and purple paint to practice the letter 'm.'|
|We used our moustaches tattoos from Santa.|
|We did this cool experiment with m&m's. The instructions were to place the candies (or skittles) in a bowl filled with water, making sure to place the letter m facing up. Then we left them there for an hour or so.|
|We learned that while the m&m's sink, the letter 'm's' will detach from the candy and float to the surface of the bowl. So fun and mesmerizing.|
