What better way to start learning the alphabet than at the beginning?!These toilet paper tube apple trees are so easy to make. I made slits in toilet paper rolls and the kids were able to slip their green tree formed card stock into it after they had glued on red beads. Cute and super easy!
The Do a Dot in the picture, the apple sizing, and the Aa lacing activity are from the Letter of the Week Curriculum at Confessions of a Homeschooler.
The playdough mat is from Homeschool Creations and I printed them for every letter. I love how they incorporate the picture (phonics, spelling) and the sensory aspect. We also used a letter A word search, an “A is for Astronaut” Do a Dot, many of the other activities from the Letter of the Week curriculum, and we did some apple picking.
A completely unrelated to “Aa” workbox activity that was the hands down favourite of the week was ribbon weaving. Using a dish divider from the cupboard, the kids wove ribbon through the slits.
