Harris' Preschool - Letter F

Now that Halloween has passed, we have started back on the alphabet.  This past week, Harris learned about the letter F.

F is for Football - he was excited to find it in his letter box.
F is for Feather
Making his dot letter F's
F is for Feather - so this week we decorated the letter with feathers!

Harris sorted feathers by color.

F is for fruit!
We talked about the differences between fruit & vegetables.  Harris sorted the fruits & veggies.
Harris made his name out of torn paper.  We love fine motor practice. Normally I wouldn't let him go out of order, but this day he wanted to choose which letter to do first. 
F is for Fly Swatter - Harris swatted the letters that I called out for him.  Then we played again with the letter sounds.
F is for Foil - Harris got to play with some foil.  He enjoyed tearing pieces off & making them into little balls.
F is for Flour!

Harris made a mess pretty quickly with the dry flower.
Then we added water to play with some dough.

F is for Fruit Loops!
Harris & Nolin both made Fruit Loop rainbows!  We sand the color songs while working...

R-E-D spells red,
R-E-D spells red,
Apples & tomato juice,
R-E-D spells red.
*tune - "The Farmer in the Dell"

O-R-A-N-G-E orange,
O-R-A-N-G-E orange,
O-R-A-N-G-E orange,
That's how you spell orange.
Carrots, pumpkins, & some oranges,
Carrots, pumpkins, & some oranges,
Carrots, pumpkins, & some oranges,
O-R-A-N-G-E orange.
*tune - "Ten Little Indians"

Yellow, yellow is the sun,
It shines down on everyone.
Y-E-L-L-O-W, Y-E-L-L-O-W,
Yellow, yellow is the sun,
Shine on me so I can have some fun!
*tune - "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"

There is a color, green's its' name,
The color of the trees - Oh,
G-R-E-E-N, G-R-E-E-N, G-R-E-E-N,
& that's how you spell green - Oh!
*tune - "Bingo"

B-L-U-E, B-L-U-E,
That spells blue, that spells blue,
Blue's the color of the sky, blue's the color of the sea,
B-L-U-E, B-L-U-E
*tune - "Frere Jacque"

Purple as can be,
Purple grapes & violets,
A sight for you & me!
*tune - "Row, Row, Row Your Boat"

We used cotton balls for clouds.

Of course the kids got to eat some Fruit Loops when they were finished.
F is for Finger Paint!

Harris sorted upper & lowercase letter F's.
F is for Family Portraits - Harris would say, "leg, leg, circle, eye, eye, hair".  LOL
Making upper & lowercase pattern block letter F's.
Harris practiced counting & fine motor skills by placing beads onto pipe cleaners.  I helped him recognize the number & then he would place beads on. We did the counting together to practice one-to-one correspondence. 

F is for Fish - goldfish! Harris counted fish to add to their fish bowls.
Up next...letter G!
