Letter Z - Zebra Week

 These are our homeschool preschool activities for the Letter Z and Zebra week. Last letter!! Archer was 37 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 week was pretty light. He's outgrowing a lot of the activities (but still asks for them) and we're remodeling our basement, which makes toy rotation and accessing material storage difficult. Plus, it is summer and we're trying to get out to parks and on walks when we can. I'm getting excited for next year's curriculum!
This was his shelf setup above his desk. I hung some bulletin board letters, a sign language card (from And Next Comes L) and his work from the week. The shelf had an Alphabet Reader, a Meet the Phonics Letter Reader, and some letter construction.
I used Magnatiles to make a Z on his white board and added fridge phonics. We had some zebra figurines and his clock.

Playing with his Osmo letters
We got a set of continent puzzles and he LOVES them. He did this North America one many many times in the last week.
Fraction magnets
Playing My First Animal Upon Animal
He has been so into his United States puzzle and the 50 Nifty States Song that we decided to let him try Sequence States and Capitols. He really enjoyed finding the states on the board, but didn't understand the idea of getting so many in a row to make a "Sequence."
The Scrambled States of America was by far the most read book this week.
We played some Stone Soup
He decided to use his letter construction set to make some numbers. I was actually pretty impressed.
