January Week 3: Alphabet {letter Mm}

Letter of the week box: monkey, magnet, magnifying glass, money, markers, maracas, metal, mail, magazine, movie, letter m flash card.

Letter Song {U Tube Video}: "Letter M", by Having Fun Teaching

We start by listening and watching the video of the song "Letter m," by Have Fun Teaching. E danced and jumped to the song and worked on saying the /m/ sound!

Then we go through the letter of the week box. We discuss each object. While pointing to the M flash card, I say, "Monkey starts with M. /m/ /m/ monkey." I do this for each object. 

Letter Worksheet: M is for macaroni

First, I have him trace the letter with his pointer finger on his worksheet.  I model how to trace the letter M on a piece of paper with a marker. He then traces the letter on his worksheet with a marker and glues macaroni noodles on M.
