Letter of the week: M

This I tried something different and set up a little center for Mini Piwi based around her letter of the Week, M. Usually she just has Workboxes. This is how it started out...
It looked a little bare for a reason. We added pictures of items starting with M and displayed her 'M' projects. Each night she took everyone for a 'tour' of her work.
Books of the week:
We read and made crafts with Mouse Shapes, Mouse Paint & Mouse Count by Ellen Stoll Walsh.

We used the M for Mouse printables from 1+1+1=1.  They were very popular!

There were also plenty of other activites going on .I posted earlier this week about the fun doing Experiments with Magnets.
Mini Piwi loves her new Melissa & Doug Shape, Model and Mold set. The wooden tools are easy and fun to use. Mini Piwi has no complaints at all and the tools are built to last. However, if I was going to be picky... The wooden box it comes in is a cute idea but a lid would have been a nice extra. It doesn't come with a lot of dough. What it did have, had a weird plastic smell. Overall though, it is definitely more durable and preferable to all the gimmicky 'gumball and ice cream makers' being put out by another well known brand.
As part of a review of 2nd grade patterning we made Bracelet and Mini Piwi was so proud that she could work thread the little beads all by herself.
We are Exploring Electricity in Second grade so Mini Piwi was also the middle of all the experiments going on with Static electricity. She volunteered to be the official 'balloon charger'.
