Please forgive me for the long absence. We continued with out letters, although I wasn't able to update here. But we didn't do much last two weeks, since kids' Dad was home and they had lots of outdoor time alhamdulillah.
You can download letter Gg printable from HERE, inshaAllah. I must say that all the pictures on the paper were chosen by Yusuf.
We did following activities for the letter Gg: Letter Gg is for grapes, gumballs. Yusuf worked with glue and colored with paint and crayons. Alphabet coloring sheets were mainly taken from http://www.3dinosaurs.com/ and http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/.
To encourage more good behavior from his side, we started A Good deeds jar project. We took a jar and decorated it. Reward for the good deed does not necessarily has to be something sweet, it can be a small note with a certain good deed written on it (example). When the child collects more of them, or fills the jar with good deeds, you can get child a book, a toy, etc.
We also made a paper mache globe, there are lots of them on the internet with step by step pictures and guidelines. Ours did not turn out to be perfect, we started off with bigger balloon, we applied the first layer of glue and left the balloon to dry for 2 days. But somehow I didn't go back to do the second layer for a while and kids played with it. When I hold the balloon it was not firm and solid anymore with few indentations on it. Yusuf took a lot smaller balloon and said let's do the globe again. We only did one layer of glue and it was enough. For the continents we chose traditional Montessori continent colors.
