Letter "Q"

This  morning was beautiful, the children were all happy and all were working together with the geo boards, when I had the kids make the letters of the alphabet, starting with the letter A.And puzzles are always a big hit

Joey found this book about shapes on the table and we read it together, first, then he had me find the  right pictures

 The phone rang to tell us that one of the children would be absent today so we were able to get things started with the others. I was reminded from another website (Confessions of a homeschool Mom) to put lines that can be traced inside the letters to make it easier for these little ones.  And, ta da, it worked. Hyrum did it perfect
 As Did, Sam
 Lily and Joey.  I was so proud of them!!
 To start our day, we talked about the letters Q and K and Queen and King.  We got out these crowns and added decorations to make them our own King, prince, princess crowns.  Here is Lily adding stars

 H adds little animals
 Sam shows us his finished crown
 Joe  shows us his, too
 AND, Miss Lily poses to show us her finished crown
Next, we took a worksheet that was made to look like a quilt, and we were to find the pictures beginning with the qua or letter "q" sound.  Joey did very well.  The worksheet was laminated and they used dry erase pens, so we just erased them and put them away because we will use them Thursday to circle the "k" pictures.
 We had a few minutes of wiggles, so we had the kids show and tell their things from home.   This is sargent, H's little stuffed dog
 Joe's starwar characters
The end of any good day, is the reading of good books and singing our favorite songs. 
We listened to "little Quack's Bedtime", then sang the five little ducks song
 We listened to the Quiet Quail and then we found the other things that begin with the sound of Q and chose to sing "Popcorn, popping"
 And we walked through the forest as a turtle takes a Quiet Walk
The end to a perfect day of doing activities with the letter "Q"

  First of course, was the pledge.  Then Lily informed me that she wanted to have "Cat in the Hat" to point to the calendar days and month.
