Allie and Applesauce

Just another way to experience the letter "Aa"!

I gave each child a copy of the Allie Aligator merged letter( the letter and the animal) and 1/4 cup of applesauce. We talked about how the letter looks like a circle and they each traced the letter with me...of course with the applesauce! This was a fun activity even if some do not like getting their fingers messy! I wonder what they will do with banana pudding next week!

learning objective: begins to associate the names of letters with their shapes

I saw a program of Jon and Kate Plus 8 where she made some editable play doh out of powdered milk (equal parts of all ingredients), honey, and peanut butter. It would play like play doh but the kids found out they could eat it, so not too much playing went on! Applesauce would be yummy too.
