Another week, another letter. This week we had fun learning all about the letter L. Please feel free to download a copy of the letter L below.
Some words that start with the letter L : Late, Lose, Love, Link, Lion, Laces, List, Lip and Lay
For our lesson, we focused on Lamb, Leaves, and Lady Bugs.
First up for us is Lamb. We printed out the letter L and then my son glued cotton balls to the L while I cut out a face for the Lamb. We then glued on the face and drew on an ear and four legs. My son always enjoys an activity that involves glue so this was a big hit.
For the next craft, we pulled out the glue again. This time we printed out the letter L and glued Leaves that we collected from the yard all over the L. We also made the Leaf necklace that we featured yesterday but my son has already misplaced it so I was unable to get a picture.
Continuing the Leave theme, we also made some Leaf Rubbings. It was later in the evening by now so instead of going outside to collect leaves, we used the leaf rubbing plates that I had stashed in my supplies. This would work just as easily though with real leaves. Lay the leaves back side up on a table, lay a piece of paper on top and then use the side of a crayon to rub it over the leaf to get the impression.
For the last activity, we made Lady Bugs. I took the round yard sale stickers that you can buy at any big box store and cut a few rows of them in half. My son then stuck the halves on a letter L. We then drew in the spots and the antennas.
Foods that start with the letter L: Lamb, Liver, Lollipop, Lettuce, Lemons, Limes, Licorice and Lox.
For our snack, we went with a great activity that I found on The Idea Room. If you have not checked out this site yet, give it a try. She has some great ideas on there. Our Lollipop Cookies were very easy. The dough was a great sensory activity for my son. He is not great at rolling dough into a snake just yet but he had a lot of fun trying.
Then we pulled it back out and divided each color into about 10 balls each.
Next we took one of each ball and pressed them together and rolled them out into snakes. We then wound the snakes around and around until all of the dough was gone.
Before you bake, put a lollipop stick into each cookie. Ours baked for about 10 minutes but follow your recipe's bake time.
