Preschool Corner Letter M


Mmmm!  Oh the wonderful adventures of letter M.

This week we marshmallow painted. (which is an idea I got from Ramblings of a Crazy Woman)


We did a science experiment with magnets.  We tested several difference objects to see what is magnetic and what isn't.

The magnet activity turned into a creative magnet sculpture.



Using a Martha Stewart puppet kit we put together a monkey puppet.




Something new for us was using a magnet board to tell a story (like using a flannel board except we don't have a flannel board).
We told the story of Five Little Monkey Swinging From a Tree.  (great for teaching rhythm and subtraction :)).

Our last M Project was our adorable little martian named Blooey.



Books this week were:
For more Preschool Corner head on over to Homeschool Creations.
