This week was letter Mm week. We started the week going on a letter/sound hunt with monster wands.
When students found a picture, they had their monster say, "Mmm, mmm, good!" and then colored that picture on their recording sheet.
The recording sheet, picture cards to hunt, and monster wands are in my Mm unit.
We also made monster claws to wear. These were so simple to make and helped with scissor skills.
To make them, I traced around students' hands about an inch from each finger so the hand was bigger like a monster hand and so students felt successful cutting. Then students glued die cut triangles onto the "fingers".
I attached a paper band when students completed their part.
We enjoyed reading Go Away Big Green Monster and made lowercase m crafts.
(Are you catching on to our monstrous theme?!?)
We also learned how to form letter Mm with the help of our Mm mats and moose.
My cuties love these letter tracing mats in my letter units from my store. I have a fun little character/object to use to trace the letter. That object matches the character/object on the mat so students know where to place their character to begin tracing.
After this tracing fun, we played a spin and write letter game.
For extra fun, I added monster eyeballs (water beads from Michael's) to our sensory table. They loved those things!!!!
We also made letter Mm with marshmallows.

Oh, and we had our 24th project funded this week from Donors Choose! We are getting more Heidi Songs CDs and DVDs. We love her songs!
