Letter W Week

W made out of Williams!
Tons of book choices this week.  These are just the ones I found that start with W, not ones with W words elsewhere in the title!  I wish the timing had been better because the following week, we hosted a wind themed mommy and me group.

Wemberly's Ice Cream Star by Kevin Henkes

Weekend with Wendell by Kevin Henkes

There are many books with the  word "who" such as Whose Feet?  or Whose Ears?  I avoid the word "who" since it does make W sound. 

Idea words:
week, work, word, what, why, where, when, Wednesday, wheels, wake, we, water

W out of Williams!

Read W books and point out the W's and their sound
Watch W playlist

One activity I wanted to do, but it just wasn't in season, was to make W's using the cookie cutter on watermelon slices. 

Just like last week, we did some activities this week that were unrelated to our letter of the week.

A couple fun activities from 1+1+1=1.  Natalie really loved the ballerina activity from the Ballerina themed Tot Pack.  

I got this idea from Pinterest.  Natalie was excited. 

Best scissor practice yet!

I couldn't figure out how to get her to hold the scissors right, but my husband did it.
