'A' is for Apple...and other things.

Morgan's teachers send activities to do at home on occasion and yesterday they sent home a couple activities working with the letter 'A'. Well Morgan couldn't wait to do them, so I made a copy (so Blake wouldn't feel left out) and we expanded on their learning the letter 'A' a bit....

We started by making some apple wheels. When the kids turn the wheel behind, they see 4 different things that start with the letter 'A'-Apple, Alligator, Apron and Ant.

Then they made some Apple puppets.

After that it was time for a snack, so we had Apples!

Then we put on our Aprons...

...and mixed up some Jello to make...

...Apple-shaped Jello Jigglers!

We did a little reading about Alligators.

Then sang a song about Ants. (The Ants Go Marching.)

Of course we are trying to focus more on God and reading the Bible (and sticking to it!), so we also read about Abraham.

And sang "Father Abraham" to add some more fun to it all! ;-)
