Nolin's Preschool - Letter T

We finally finished up the letter T!  We've been working on this for a few weeks, with a fun trip to Kentucky in between...

Letter T Mystery Box - tractor, tow truck, tools, track, toothbrush, toothpaste, toothpicks, teacup, tape, ten, tomato, train, upper & lowercase letter T's, toilet paper, & telephone
T is for Tape
T is for Transportation
I made a chalk graph on the patio & Nolin sorted vehicles by different modes of transportation - land, water, & air.
Before we started, I asked Nolin different ways that you can go from place to place (transportation) & she was able to tell me all about boats, cars, trucks, trains, & airplanes.  :)
T is for Treasure Hunt - I "hid" puzzle pieces from two of Nolin's transportation puzzles in the yard,  She then went on a treasure hunt to find them all.
Nolin brought each puzzle piece back as she found them.  She asked to have more treasure hunts when we were finished.  She really loved this game.
T is for Toothpaste - Elephant Toothpaste!
I learned about Elephant Toothpaste at Fun at Home with Kids.  We tried this with regular hydrogen peroxide & it didn't work very well, so I had to order the special bottle.  It was super cool to watch!
T is for Tissue Art
This was a great fine motor activity for Nolin.
Finished Product - a bird!
T is for Tracing - Nolin practiced tracing letters & numbers.
We also played a fun little game when Harris had an extra long nap one day.  We pulled out Nolin's wooden shape clock & talked a bit about time - wake up time, lunch time, dinner time, bedtime.  Then we took turns choosing a number from the clock for the other person to identify & count that number of Cheerios to eat. :)
