This week Mercedes' preschool theme was the letter D.
I wrote the big and little letter D on our dry erase board and we practiced making the "d" sound.
She practiced tracing the big and little letter D on the worksheet I made for her.
She colored a letter D activity page.
I added the big and little letter D to our flashcard collection.
I bought her new alphabet flashcards at The Dollar Tree and we practiced the letters we've learned so far.
We learned the ASL sign for D and Mercedes did her best to try it out.
I filled a bag with items that begin with the letter D and Mercedes pulled each item out one by one and practiced making the D sound as she named each item: dinosaur, dress, duck, doll, dolphin, dog, dime, foam letter D, dalmatian, "diamonds". and lego dresser drawers.
We dug in the dirt.
And wrote the letter D in the dirt.
We did a dirt sensory activity.
And when we were done Mercedes washed the dishes.
We made Snicker's Dip for dipping apples.
We had a dance party in the dark with our disco ball.
We put together a giant dinosaur floor puzzle.
Mercedes made a big letter D with "diamonds".
And a little letter d with dots.
We played with play-doh.
I gave Mercedes a dog calander.
And we used it to create a giant dog collage on the wall.
We played doctor with baby dolls.
And we played dentist.
Last, we used a plastic dinosaur to paint dinosaur footprints.
And this completes our first month of preschool! We are having a blast and Mercedes is constantly begging me for more projects. I feel so blessed to have a kid who loves to learn, and blessed to have the opportunity to be the one to teach her!
