Letter F for fish in action!

Here’s some of our Letter F week fun in action!

I know a whale doesn’t theoretically go in the ‘fish’ category, but it swims and is the only close card we had and she wanted to do the tangrams today, so its all good 🙂

Our Letter Matching, Please note, the original idea for this game came from Tot School and Carisa’s blog. I ended up making my own letters as I wanted lowercase and she didn’t have them. These letters work well if you use a 1 3/8″ circle punch to punch out the letters then xyron them onto 1 1/2″ wooden disks from Michael’s. Click here to see the process of making the letters. If you’re looking for more challenge, use the uppercase card with the lowercase letter disks or visa versa!

Fish Size Sorting: She loved this one, and laughed when I asked why all the fish were swimming upside down 🙂

Working with our color cubes and the Letter F: I use our Large Alphabet Lacing Cards! for this activity. Click here to see more CREATIVE COLOR CUBE Ideas

Fish Lacing Card: We did the in-out-in-out pattern on this one:

Foam Letter Builders, we try to do this for each letter we learn, I just handcut them so don’t have a template, but you can download a printable letter builder template here, or I also saw How to Build an A on 1+1+1 that looks like lots of fun!

Fish Color Puzzles: I cut these little guys out then cut them in half in as many interesting ways as I could think of to make tiny color matching puzzles.

Marbles and Golf Tee Motorskills! I’ve seen this on several blogs, but most recently on Pink and Green Mama. It looked right up our alley, so I tried it today! It was such a hit that everyone had to have a turn, thanks Pink and Green Mama!

Fish Floor Numbers: I made these large floor numbers so that we can play a hopscotch type game. I call out a number and she jumps to it! You could also have them put the cards in numerical order.

Fish Measuring! This is a new game for us, and we’re going to use goldfish to learn the difference between long and short. (Notice the teeny tiny tot sneaking in the corner of the pic to get some snacks!

Some fun pom-pom size sorting: we used kids chopsticks from PF Chang’s for this, but you can use tweezers, or make your own chopstick holder using a folded up piece of paper and rubberband!

Pattern Block Design Cards: She didn’t finish this whole thing, but did quite a bit of it! Here’s a Pattern Blocks & Boards set that comes with the blocks as well.

We always read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and put our letter F up on the alphabet tree!

That’s it for now, visit my Letter F post for more Fishy ideas!
