Letter Nn week…

We had a great week filled with learning all about the letter Nn.  We explored a squirrel’s world and their love of nuts, made nests and noodle necklaces.

N is for Nuts

Sing With Me

The Squirrel

(to the tune “I’m a Little Teapot”)

These are the brown leaves fluttering down.

And this is the tall tree bare and brown.

This is the squirrel with eyes so bright.

Hunting for nuts with all his might.

This is the hole where day by day,

Nut after nut he stores away.

When winter comes with its cold and storm,

He’ll sleep curled up, all snug and warm.

Story Time

preschool book about nuts and squirrel

We read “Nuts to You!” by Lois Ehlert. This was a fun story all about a mischievous squirrel who is on the hunt for nuts!

Arts and Crafts

We made paper walnuts to go along with our story.  The children painted brown paper and I cut the nuts in half and added a brass brad so the shell can open and close.

N is for Noodles

Sing With Me

I Love Pasta

(to the tune of “I’m a Little Tea Pot”)

I love pasta shapes, yes, I do,

Noodles and twists are but a few.

Then there’s spaghetti and bow ties,

Wheels and macaroni, any size.

Cook up the pasta, yum, yum, yum

I just love pasta in my tum.

Hand out the forks, and now let’s eat,

I say pasta is a special treat!

Nyle Noodle

(to the tune “The Farmer in the Dell”)

Nyle Noodle likes to dine.

His noodles taste so fine.

He looks for letter N to eat

And then the number nine!

Story Time

We read “More Spaghetti I Say!” by Rita Golden Gelman.  I love this story and have had it a long time.  It’s a fun tale all about a funny monkey who stuffs himself with spaghetti.

Arts and Crafts

noodle necklaces

For our noodle theme, we made noodle necklaces.  The children colored them with markers and then they strung them onto ribbon to make a necklace.

N is for Nest

Story Time

We read “My Nest is Best”by P.D. Eastman.  This is a fun interactive tale all about a boastful bird who is proud of his nest making skills.

Sing With Me

Little Bird

(to the tune:”Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”)
Little bird, little bird, fly around,
Up to the sky, down to the ground.
Little bird, little bird, flap your wings.
Open your beak and sweetly sing.
Little bird, little bird, fly to your nest.
Now it is time to take a rest.
