Baby Food Jar Cap= Letter Help

Are you looking for a way to reuse some of those caps off of your baby food jars?  Then here is a great idea.  After you clean them simply use a permanent marker and write letters on each cap.  I did a set of capital, lower case, and numbers.  After you have completed that there are an endless amount of activities you can use them for.  

Our first activity was very simple.  I grabbed our letter flash cards and my daughter had to match the letters, say the letter, say the sound, and trace each letter.  

A few other ideas:
-make words
-practice names
-match lower case with upper case
-put the alphabet in order
-find objects that start with that letter
-I bet you can come up with other ideas too...Please make sure you come back and share your ideas.  :)

You can start working on letter sounds too once the letter names are down. You could even do letter combinations, like "sh", "ch", "th", and "ing"

Other ideas:
-memory game (find upper and lowercase letter pairs)
- rhyming words (spell out a short word, like log, and then replace the l with other letters to make other words (like bog, dog, frog, etc.)
- say words and have her pick out the first and last sounds she hears (for example, the first sound of pencil is p and the last sound is l)
- Read a book with her and look for specific letters in the book, reminding her of what sound they make

These are all things that the kindergarteners that I work with practice a lot.
Love this idea. We have lots of baby food jar lids right now and I keep thinking there should be something interesting to do with them.
Oooo I love the letter combinations!! We will for sure be doing that since we have been working on those sounds!

Rose, Have fun with your jar lids! :)

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
