We haven't done any letter crafts for a while! M has lots of possibilities but we live at the base of big mountains I thought they'd be a great subject. When I cut out the big letra M I asked Chiquita "Que letra es?" I was pretty happy when she answered W! So close!
Then I had to figure out how to explain what montañas (mountains) are. We went to the window and I pointed to them. I'm sure all of you mom's have had this experience. "Where?" as she stares at the window instead of through it. I tried saying the "big things with snow on them", that got a blank look. I reminded her about when we'd gone hiking and that we were climbing up the mountain, finally explain that it's the ground when it goes up towards the sky. She seemed to get what I was saying then.
Chiquita glued down her gray letter M. I cut out some snow for her to put on the peaks. Then I let her decorate her mountains with little trees and boulders. She really did that all by herself. There you go, M if for Mountain!
