The letter this week was N. I thought it would be a good time to focus on numbers, since we usually are more focused on letters. Here’s our learning board for the week:
We also made a Number N, which was a super quick and easy craft. I had her put the numbers in order and glue them on a cardboard N I cut out.
Number Books: There are so many great counting books out there, and here our a few we read this week:
Museum 123 by the (NY) Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is a favorite at our house. You have to check this book out, along with Museum ABC. They both are filled with famous artwork and such a fun way to learn numbers and letters.
Counting Wildflowers by Bruce McMillan. I liked that this one had photographs of real flowers and also went all the way up to 20. It seems that most counting books I come across only go to 10.
One Duck Stuck by Phyllis Root was a super cute book in rhyme about a duck that gets stuck in the mud and all the different friends that come to help her. I think preschoolers as well as younger toddlers would enjoy this one.
Counting In The Garden by Kim Parker was another fun, flowery book. The animals and bugs that were being counted in each picture blended in with the flowers so it was harder to find them, which made it fun.
Follow the Line by Laura Ljungkvvist. I really loved this book and it was so great for counting. Each page were questions about the picture on the page, such as “How many flowers can you count?” So if you’re looking to practice counting, this is a perfect book for that.
Country: Nepal…I think my favorite part about learning about Nepal was teaching Charlotte to say Namaste.
Verse:“Nothing at all can ever separate us from God’s love…” Romans 8:39
For Christmas Charlotte got the Melissa & Doug Deluxe Alphabet Stamp Set so she’s stamping N’s all over her verse to decorate it.
