We used the book Mouse Paint for our special Letter M theme and Ladybug loved it!  Here’s her special Mouse Paint shelf…

Mouse Paint -7987

She went straight for the counting game in the mini pocket chart, which we played several times after this also!

Mouse Paint -8004

 

We read the book MANY times, and enjoyed using special props as we told the story.  I put a tiny cat and mouse in a basket on the shelf and she played with these so much!

Mouse Paint -8000

We used our rainbow blocks to be the “paint”

Mouse Paint -8078

We also pulled down the printable colored mice to use…

Mouse Paint -8081

 

We worked on our Mouse Paint Pocket Chart Printables, but she wasn’t nearly as impressed as I was.

We colored the Mouse Paint Colors book together…

The highlight was making egg carton mice!

Our purple mix was a big fat failure, so I cheated and got the purple paint from the cabinet.

She didn’t want to use Qtips on the color word printables I made for her, so we used glue and glitter!

She loved using stickers on the dot fun sheet

We also used stickers for the graphing activity!

Home Preschool ~ Letter M

Each week I share 2-3 posts sharing our home preschool learning.  This post is only sharing our letter focused work. If we have a theme of the week, it will be a separate post too.  All of our general play based learning will be in a final weekly wrap up post called, “Learning with Ladybug.”  I am separating out the posts to make them easier for people to find down the road when searching for specific letter/theme activities.  See our entire home preschool plan here!

We love our ABC Baskets!  I love how much she enjoys digging through them.  We play a lot together during the week exploring the contents.

Usually on one day during the week, I will pull out all of the puzzles and display them as an invitation for her to complete them, she almost always accepts the invitation!

I gathered some of our books about mice, moose, and monkeys!

Home Preschool Letter M -7973

 

I drew an M on our easel and drew one mouse, thinking that’s what we would add to our letter.  The kids had a different idea and decided M was for Minecraft! Home Preschool Letter M -8734


CRAFTS

 

She loves the paint cut and glue crafts from Learn, Create, Love.  This week we made the mouse!

PRINTABLES

I create a binder with all of the printables I chose and allowed her to flip through and choose something to do.

We used glitter and glue to create our letter Mm from the Q-Tip alphabet printables.  She didn’t want to use a Q tip!

Home Preschool Letter M -8281

 

The next few printables are from the Letter M pack which is available here. This printable pack was given to us from a kind blog reader who also creates printables!

I decided to try the word puzzles and although she didn’t LOVE them, she definitely liked them.  After we put them all together, with the help of a Littlest Pet Shop bug, we worked on sounds.

Home Preschool Letter M -8568

I would sound the word out slowly and she would move the bug to the word I was saying.

Home Preschool Letter M -8571

We used stickers to fin the words that begin with Letter M, she loves this activity!

Home Preschool Letter M -8578

Stickers again, to find the upper and lower case letter Mm.

Mouse Paint Q Tip Painting Color Words

{disclaimer ~ affiliate links used below}

Mouse Paint is a great way to work on color word and although my daughter is a bit young for this, it’s not too early to expose!  I made these to be Q tip painting sheets, but she is an out of the box thinker and asked for glitter.  Together we put tiny glue dots on the bubbles and then glittered them!

I wrote about my views on using themes with young kids, and there are certainly a LOT of early childhood themes to choose from! When you begin planning, Pinterest and Google can be a bit overwhelming! I am creating this series to help you with your planning. I have gathered all FREE theme based printable packs {mainly early childhood focused, tots-1st grade} that I am aware of and sorted them by letter so you can browse through and get ideas all in one place! I did NOT include holiday based packs, simply because there are so many and they are pretty easy to find when holidays roll around.

I have included free printable theme packs from bloggers around the web including; Homeschool Creations, 2 Teaching Mommies, Spell Outloud, 3 Dinosaurs, Confessions of a Homeschooler, Me & Marie Learning, Ooopsey Daisy, All Our Days, Creative Learning Fun, Royal Baloo, 123 Homeschool 4 Me, Lawteedah, Our Little Monkeys, Creative Preschool Resources, Our Country Road, Homeschool Share, Gift of Curiosity, This Reading Mama, and Over the Big Moon. {if any of you ladies notice an error/edit please let me know!}

If the pack was created by another blogger, I listed their {blog name} in the brackets. If there aren’t any brackets, I made it!
