Letter M - Monkey Week

These are our homeschool preschool activities for the Letter M and Monkeys week. Archer was 32 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 work 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.
I'm trying to include readers to read together, as well as books about the week's letter or animal. We had First Little Readers book, and a non-fiction sight words reader. We also had seeral monkey books.
There were his shelves for the week. I used Magnatiles to make an M on his white board and added some magnetic letters and fridge phonics. On top I have his Alphabet Soup Can, some monkeys, and his preschool basket.

Shelves on the left had a monkey stacking game, Monkey Around, magnetic gears and a safari bowling set. Shelves on the right had Rainforest Toob figurines and vocabulary cards, a 12 piece puzzle, Magna Quibix, a silicone letter "popping" toy, Barrel of Monkeys, cars and garages, block buddies and a basket of cars.
Letter construction (From Tired Need Sleep)
Letter maze (free to print here). He completed it correctly, then colored all over it.
Tracing cards and line tracing (free to print here).
We did our normal playdough routine with cookie cutters and a  letter stamper (similar to these).  We also used our alphabet dough mat (free to print here).
M and Monkey puzzles
Matching monkeys to shape words (free to print here).
Monkey size sorting (free to print here).
Stacking some monkeys (and apes).
Tracing pages from Tracing Trails. We use dry erase crayons so we can do it again and again. These were actually big brother's.
Writing numbers in his sand box (DIY post here)
His froggy balance is currently used multiple times a week, sometimes to do math! 
Gears (Lakeshore Learning) on his magnetic easel were used a lot this week!
Meet the Math Facts are new favorite apps.
Stringing monkeys! He's not ready to use the string to pick up new ones, but enjoyed balancing them.
Combining his favorite things: trains and a number mold.
Lately, he's been stealing big brother's Katmino game. He loves fitting the pieces together in different ways.
