Letter R

Have fun with the Letter R!

Letter R Memory Verse
 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy." Exodus 20:8
A-Z Collage Sheets.
I printed these 2 up on a page.

We used the R that we already had printed from our A-Z Collage Sheets.
I got these wooden blocks from hobby lobby, and had him place them on the letter shape.  
Just another way to have fun while learning how to shape the letter R!
After doing this all week, I had him do it the last day with out the paper underneath.

I printed them 2 up to make them smaller and to use less ink and paper. :)

I put them in a sheet protector so he can use the same sheet every day of the week!

Print and use a sheet protector so you can do it every day of the week.

 Using the Rainbow color match to put in the rainbow color order.

Letter R Puzzle.
(I used the A-Z large floor mats as puzzles) 
This way it doesn't have the lines already in the file and you can cut it however you want.  I wanted to do at least 8 pieces.  I might change it up to more or different shapes or something for a later puzzle...we will see!

This is different than most the can cut in half and make the counting cards into a puzzle type of game also. 
Use these in 3 different ways.  First you can just put them in numerical order.  Then I have larger clothes pins that I have written numbers on, so they use those to match the number.  And then I bought some smaller clothes pins and that one he puts that many pins on the number card.  
We also lined them up this way and counted by 2's!
See all these examples in picture form in the Number Order Games Post.

Print the letters only once with all these files.  I just laminated the letters instead of attaching them to anything else.  This still makes them durable and long lasting. :)

 Print smaller size to save on ink and lamination. :)

Roll a Rainbow.  These games are my son's favorite. :)

We used our homemade pompom magnets for these.
 We got these rocks while we were in Duluth.  There were all these different colors as we walked along the shore so I brought them home for the kids.  First of all they love playing with rocks and they are free.  So you can't beat that.  Plus I knew we were going to work on the rainbow so this was perfect.

 And then we used those blocks and put them in rainbow color order.  Fun little activities. :)

 Coloring our own rainbow.

I made my own circle the letter files.  (example shown)
Download my A-Z Circle the letter file.
You can print them full page or 2 up.  
We used pencil on this and did it as a one time use.
 Or you could put them in sheet protectors and do the same sheet over and over again. :)

(no picture this time)
Read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom every day.  
And at the end of the week put the letter R on your coconut tree!  
I used the A-Z Collage Sheets.
I put them 4 up on a page so the letter would be small enough for 
them all to fit on our little coconut tree. 
(you're right, I didn't take a new picture so pretend it's the letter R!)
I made this file myself because I wanted all the letters in one file.
Download my A-Z poke it letter file here.  
Take a thumb tack and poke the letter R.    
Make sure to do this while on the carpeted floor. :)
Capital letter file.  Lowercase letter file.
Have fun aiming for the letter R! 
(Yes, I'm not going to take new pictures each time so pretend the bean bag landed on the letter R!)

And just for fun, a beautiful rainbow we had outside our house this last week! 

Wow, isn't God amazing?!
