So we're kind of in the middle of the alphabet right now but we will circle back and pick-up the rest of the letters and hopefully get them all in by the end of summer!
M is for...
Poster:(we will still be using the posters from ABC Jesus Loves Me I love the size of the letter, they're already set up and ready to print, and the girls are familiar with them so why not)
M is for Macaroni
Mud in a Mug
Quick Easy and Super Tasty!!
The recipe is actually Brownie for One I found on Food.com one day when I was craving brownies. When cooked up it looks a lot like Mud and the girls really got a kick out of it.
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa
2 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp oil
1/4 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
Combine all ingredients in a mug and microwave for 1 minute! Let cool it comes out very hot.
M is for Moses

Me & Neesie- sweet book about a little girl whose about ready to start Kindergarten and her imaginary friend!
Five Little Monkeys books!
The Mixed up Chameleon! I can't say enough about Eric Carle books. I love his artwork, it also lend for a great art lesson in collage work.
The Movable Mother Goose. This is a Robert Sabuda book, another illustrator that I admire. This is not one to let your kids flip through, however, it's great to sit down with, read, and be amazed!
M is for Monster Jam Painting
We decided to make this an outdoor activity. I could see it getting out of hand really fast. It's really self explanatory but I'll describe what we did anyway.
You will need both a large piece of paper to make the painting on and something else to spread the paint on. We just happened to have pizza for dinner so I took the pizza box apart and it was perfect. I put a long line of paint down then added a little water to thin it out. Then the girls drove their trucks through the paint or "mud" and made tracks on the paper.
This was always a favorite activity when I taught Kindergarten and just for a side note Monster Jam trucks aren't the only trucks that will make tracks. I actually got some really cheap ones from Walgreens when I did this with my Kindergarten classes because I knew we'd be doing it over and over again all day and I wasn't sure how much the cars could take but even then it all came off easily with just water.
still more to come....
