ivey league preschool: t is for trucks!

Here's what we did for T Week a few weeks ago!

We did our play-doh mat, do-a-dot, and pattern block mat for the letter T:

Then we did a couple of truck-themed activities, including a connect-the-dots truck, and a coloring page based on the book Little Blue Truck.

We also played a transportation-themed matching game from one of Caleb's High Five magazines.  He really enjoys hands-on games like this one!

We also did several pages in a pre-K math workbook that was also transportation themed!  We had given this to Caleb when he turned four, but hadn't really busted it out yet.  He likes the Richard Scarry books we have so he enjoyed working with this.

As usual, we did a magazine scavenger hunt and collage for the letter T, but I forgot to take a picture of it!  One way I organize and keep on top of all our paper clutter is to use our collages as kind of a book cover at the end of the week.  Any worksheets or coloring pages from that week get stacked together, and then I fold the collage in half and staple it all together (I save the play-doh and pattern block mats though...we have separate binders for each of those so I put them in plastic protector sheets and that way Caleb can work on them again if he wants).  So the T collage is now serving as the cover for a little book of all we did that week!  Caleb has a nice stack of them on one of his shelves...we don't have one for A since it didn't occur to me at the time that there was a way to consolidate everything, but I started doing this for B and we've done it that way since.

Thanks to the library and our own collection at home, we had lots of truck books to choose from!
