Tuesday Teachings - The Letter R

Another week, another fun letter of the alphabet. This week we will focus on the letter R. You can download the letter R here.

Words that start with R: Run, Race, Read, Racket, Robin, Rose, Rip, Rice and Road

For our activities we focused on Rose, Rabbit and Red.

First, we went out and picked some of the last miniature Roses off of our rose bush and glued them onto a letter R.

Next, we colored a letter R Red and then we glued it to a Red piece of construction paper.

Our last craft was my favorite. We turned the letter R upside down and turned it into a Rabbit by gluing ears, a nose and an eye to it.

For our snack we decided to follow the Rabbit theme and make Rabbit cookies.

We used a roll of sugar cookie dough and cut it into slices about 1/2" thick.

The slice was then cut into half. We then took one of those slices and cut it onto half also. We now have three sections for each slice.

The biggest section was rolled into a ball to use as the Rabbit's head and then each of the smaller sections were rolled into ear shapes. We baked the cookies based on the package directions.

Once they were removed from the oven, we put chocolate chips on the head for eyes and a nose. The cookies spread more than I thought they would but they still resemble Rabbits and they were tasty.

Have a great week.
