Letter I - Iguana Week

 These are our homeschool preschool activities for the Letter I and Iguanas week. We actually took a couple of weeks, since we took a long weekend from homeschool. Archer was 29 months. You can see our full "curriculum" post here, but we will only use some activities each week. The majority of his time is still unstructured play.
This was his desk setup. I hung some bulletin board letters, a sign language card (from And Next Comes L) and his art from the week. The shelf had a letter construction capital and lowercase letters, an Alphabet ReaderMeet the Phonics Letter Reader and a wooden letter train car (that got taken to the train table at the time of the picture).
His "Preschool Basket," had a magnetic tracing board, his Brain Games activity book (we just talk through together and skip anything too advanced), My First Brain Quest (hit or miss with Archer)dry erase tracing cards, sandpaper letters and books. 

I'm trying to include readers to read together, but also books about the week's letter or animal. We had two Amazing Animal  Readers, a First Little Readers book, a sight words reader and Leaping Lizards.
This was his shelf set up in the playroom. I used Magnatiles to make a I on his white board and added some magnetic letters and fridge phonics. On top I have his Alphabet Soup Can, his preschool basket.

Shelves on the left had mini-squigz, a basket with a puzzle (taken away at picture time), magnadoodle with magnetic letters and a car ramp. Shelves on the right had Monkey Around, crystal builders, QubixDuplo pattern cards (from All Our Days), pretend ice cream and a basket of cars.

I printed a capital I (from his Cut and Paste Phonics Hunt) and then gave him little strips of paper to glue on.

The Alphabet train puzzle was a special Halloween treat from his grandparents!
He wanted to do some farm stickers.
Farm magnets were a big hit this week (even though it wasn't in my plan to get them out, haha)
