We are learning the letter A in Espanol this week and we started with abeja (bee). We got a cute printable from www.primeraescuela.com. Chiquita sort of traced the letters. She's only two and a half so I'm not worried about her learning to write the letters yet, just introducing the idea.
made a bee before and it was a big hit so I knew she'd like a bee craft. This time we made our "abejas" out of the letter A. I drew a big A and a little a in block letters on a piece of yellow construction paper. I cut those out and little black strips for the strips. While she was gluing the big A down and putting on it's strips I cut out circles and drew faces on them and white wings.
I tried drawing glue "hints" as to the best places to put each piece but Chiquita still needed a little help getting the stripes straight. I tried not to interfere too much, just enough that they look like bees.
After we had a big A abeja and a little a abeja, Chiquita decided they were a mommy and baby abeja and they missed their daddy so we had to make a third one :)
I wrote Abeja on the bottom and pointed out to Chiquita that Abeja had both a big A and a little a!
