Along with all the Matisse going on in the classroom, we did some Mouse Paint (which was the inspiration for Day 1 of my sensory table..when they looked at me curiously that there were no “brushes” i told them to make their fingers like the mice!)
This focus material in the language/writing area is inspired by the book. I found the basis for this letter tile somewhere (i thought it was www.makinglearningfun.com, but I can’t find it anymore!). Each has a color word on the page and a mouse printed over it. I added black and white clip art over top every page with a paint brush, and also a palette and colored them as a visual cue for each color.
As always, I count out the letter tiles to fit each one and mix in some challenging letters and let em have it!
