Letter of the Week – Letter P

Day 1

  1. Find p stickers and put on P
  2. Color and assemble Letter P Book
  3. Go to library and get p books
  4. Video: Olive and the Rhyme Rescue Crew
  5. We started reading Mr. Popper’s Penguins.  She asked for an activity with it, so I quickly made her a themed bath for it.  I cut up parts of a penguin out of foam, dyed the water blue and gave her a bowl of ice. She loved it.  I made 12 penguins, but could have just done two or three (see pic above).  When will I learn?! If it takes longer than five minutes (this took ten), don’t keep going! 🙂  (I posted other ideas, but never got around to them.  You can find them on my Mr. Popper’s Penguin Pinterest board.)

Day 3

  1. Pouring water–just a couple of different containers and some water.  I talked to her about how the water would change shape based on the different containers she put them in.  She loved it.  Played with it for about 20 min the first day and again the next day.  She, of course, had to get more water so she could see the water get thin.

  2. P dinner
    Appetizer: popcorn
    Dinner: Pad Thai (I bought boxed from Trader Joe’s.  They were spicy, but after soaking it with paper towels, my daughter and I could eat it. 🙂 ) I was concerned about it being spicy, so I made it a side.  The rest was, peas, pieces of chicken and peppers.
