Fun with Letter of the week!

Letter M-N-O-P

Homeschooling should have the main objective to make our kids learn and recognize all the letters initially and their phonics sound later. By implementing one letter at a time, my objective is to make my kid understand and relate each letter properly by building lots of vocabulary.

Activities with Letter M

We started this week with the word MOTHER. Telling him all the things he should know about his mother and grandmother.

“Five little MONKEYS…….”. By singing and re-telling familiar rhymes and rhyming stories, we develop many skills in our kids like auditory discrimination, a rich range of language, concentration skills, listening skills oral storytelling/poetry skills, phonemic awareness.

Monster Play Playdough is great for little imaginative minds. There is no end to what kids can pretend with playdough. It encourages a multi-sensory experience. This week I took some printed sheets, playdough with lots of props (googly eyes, buttons, ice-cream sticks, toy molds, and more) my son make different funny monster faces.

Moon Stamping Stamp painting has many sensory benefits. It’s super fun and is no preparation activity. I took a sponge , cut it into the shape of a moon and stars, pasted it over a thick cardboard sheet and gave it to my naughty toddler with some paint colors. It was a great hit for my paint lover. Later we have a wonderful storytime discussing the moon and sky.

Mouse Tape Painting
Creating craft with a rhyme “Two little mouse……” Helped my son to relate many new words having lots of fun. Actually, for him it was just a painting , he was not aware that i have created letter M with tape. After painting when i removed the tape, his joyful suprised face was worth to see. Later I made mustache and my son sticked eyes and our mouse is ready.

Mushroom Colouring Scribbling and doodling is an important sign of development in children. Through them kids achieving various fine motor, gross motor, and cognitive milestones. So it’s better to mold them in correct directions. I gave him a mushroom printout , my son scribbled it with colors of his choice. Later he pasted the MUSHROOM cutouts together.

Activities with Letter N

Numbers are considered a basic step of learning. We have done number recognizing activities before,u can read my blog through the link click here. But this time we have done number train to teach him proper sequence. Puzzles always attract him so we have matched the puzzle numbers with the train. This was really fun with lots of learning.

Beads Necklace
Lacing the beads together is a very good activity for improving fine motor skills. There are various ways to play with it. My son gifted me a hand made necklace with lots of LOVE. Matching different patterns, counting, colour sorting are few ways to enhance lacing through beads.

Night Craft
I made some stars and moon and asked him to stick them on a black paper. We had a healthy discussion on the things we see in the night followed up with the rhyme “Twinkle twinkle little star”

Noodles Pretend Play
Playdough play had numerous advantages. And my son shows deep interest in cooking so he made tasty and colorful noodles for us. You can download these play dough free printables from here.

Newspaper Cutting These days Sadhya is much interested in cutting with scissors. I was planning an activity to identify words and circle them but he started cutting it. And didn’t stopped him as he was enjoying it. Later i made some shapes and glued few newspaper stripes to it. My son enjoyed cutting it and forming various shapes.

Nest Painting
We made a nest through hand painting and some birds with finger painting. With which I thought him the importance of keeping bird feeder.

Activities with Letter O

Octopus Craft
Basic colour identification and counting activity. I added few dot numbers on different coloured strips and my son glued it with its matching number and formed a huge octopus with eight legs.

Ocean Flashcards
Ocean animals matching game. Learning about ocean animals is quite fun and with flashcards having attractive prints add more interests. My son matched animated ocean animals flashcards with the real images, very good visual discrimination activity.

Ocean Mask
Ocean world always excites kids . This week we learn lots of new things about ocean animals. Making and colouring ocean underwater mask was so much fun .Then we pretend played about the underwater life .

Onion Painting
Onion stamp painting was another engaging and learning activity for this week. My son gets facinated with vegetables , this week i made him learn about them, how they look from outside and inside, followed by painting.

Activities with Letter P

Pig Craft
I have arranged colouring printables for my son which improves his scribbling skills as well. He has made this PIG by colouring and pasting different parts together. And I have helped him in cutting.
And we enjoyed bookish play too as kids love peppa pig.

Paper crumbling craft
Paper crumpling enhanced fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination of our children. This time I made him learn the difference between fruits and veggies. Identifying the colours of vegetable printout we have and then crumbling paper to glue them together was very enggaging.

To build vocabulary we have played lots of games with different flashcards like- Parts of flower , community helpers, colour sorting , vegetables.

Concept behind was to help him relate objects with day to day lifes.

This is the end of this post. Hope you all find all the activities helpful and enggaging for your child also. Do try them with your kids and share your experiences with me.

Happy learning!

    I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Dimepiece LA celebrity streetwear brand? I am unable to check out on Dimepiecela site. I’ve read in Harpers Bazaar that they were acquired by a UK hedge fund for $50m. I’ve just bought the Shatter Ceilings HeavyBlend Sweatshirt from Amazon and absolutely love it xox

    When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!
