On to the fun stuff. We practiced the letters C and D this week. We sang songs, we sorted pictures, we wrote the letters. Today we reviewed the 2 letters and their fun songs and made our first alphabet hat. One of my favorite bloggers, Greg, from Kindergarten Smorgasboard is a hat-o-holic. He makes fun hats all.the.time! So I decided to try them this year. I used to do a letter a day, but this year I am doing 2 letters a week and Friday seems like the perfect time to make a hat, no?
I used the alphabet hats from Simply Kinder. I'm so fortunate to have gotten them during a flash freebie in May. She has templates and pictures for every hat. Each hat is about 2 pages though, so I reduced the size to 78% and copied them on 8 1/2 x 14 paper, which really turned out to be perfect.
We colored our pieces first.
Then we cut them out which was
ridiculously a little messy. Think tiny shards of paper all.over.the.place.
The final product...adorbs, right?
I gave him basically no notice before I snapped his cutie little picture ;)
As we were ready to go home I snapped another one. I love these kids, they are so precious :)
And there you have it...our first hat experience. LOVE! Tune in next week to see what hat we make :)
