Letter i and the number 9

I didn’t have too much “I”  inspiration so I thought it would be a good time to add a number activity.  I randomly chose the number 9.  When I taught preschool, I would teach them that the 9 looks like a balloon on a stick.   So I made an actual balloon on a stick.  Turned out this was a bit dangerous since he wanted to run around with it. We ended up taking the stick off, but it was still a good demonstration.

img_5335The best activity of the day was this igloo activity!  It was the first thing he wanted to do when he got here.  Its just a coloring page I printed (http://www.BigActivities.com) ,cut out, and glued onto card stock,  cardboard would have been even better since it gets rather heavy with all the sugar cubes glued onto it. img_5336img_5374He did about this much, ran around a bit, then came back and finished.  img_5385He dipped the sugar cubes into a blob of Elmers glue I had on a small plastic lid.  (Even though I had to keep refilling the blob of of glue, it worked better on  a flat container than a bowl. )

img_5372 img_5373I had trouble finding books about things that begin with I so I just checked out  a couple that had I’s in the title.  I asked him to point out the I’s and the i’s.  He found them and then asked me to find letters he saw in the title.  Grandpa read a bit and Mommy read them to him at nap time.
