letter D - d... d... dog

(updated 2012: Dog Template added)

Today we learned about the letter D. During class any time someone could tell me the letter of the day they got 2 m&m's (although Tessa would try to negotiate her way into 3 EVERY time)

This is the letter craft we made to go along with the letter. Grace loved her dog and kept asking about it the entire class time. Even after class she was worried all this windy weather might ruin her dog.

Tessa liked putting the whiskers on and was good about letting Grace do her own. Usually I try to pair Tessa with a less interested kid so she can use her good helping skills.

She was singing some song she had made up about dogs.

Cece likes crafts for about 3/4 of the time - I usually loose her the last few minutes, but she does like the craft to be completed and when her dog ear went missing, she searched high and low to retrieve it.

Reese trying to see what everyone else was working on.

Here Reese is working on his craft. He had to have everything in the right place and did a really great job following directions and the sample one I had made.

Aidan and Reese are becoming best buds. I think Aidan is glad to have a boy to play with. Today they took their dinosaurs outside and sat at the picnic table and took turns "roaring" while the other one screamed. They are so much fun to watch.

I left the whiskers be optional on the dog and Aidan had to have them. I think Aidan's dog turned out so cute.

Reese shows off his project.

Here is what the completed D letter looked like.

...Our favorite time - SNACKS!! They love that they get to watch a movie for a few minutes during snacks. For the Halloween season I thought it might be fun to watch, "The Nightmare Before Christmas"

Despite their "zombie - TV stares" they were actually full of questions about the characters and the plot. They actually pay a lot more attention then I would think possible while watching a movie.

Can't wait to try this out with my preschooler! We might do it with felt to make it like a puzzle that she can put together and take apart. Thanks so much for including a template!

I would love to know where to get the templates. I work with kiddos with ASD and this would be a great cooperative activity. tsbyrobin08@gmail.com
