We did a tactile activity using Montessori Sandpaper Letters. You can easily make this at home for a cheaper price. Click here for the easy DIY  and how to use it : DIY Montessori Sandpaper Letters





 We also utilized our tablet to practice letter Nn

 
We played a matching game , we found this game at Dollar Tree store ( I love bargains..who doesn't?) , if  you don't have a dollar store nearby..this can be made at home too. All you need is a little creativity. You can print the animals 
( Noah's Animal Bible Games via Christian Preschool Printable ) and use a poster board to lay them out.



 For our crafts: 
 We made a nest, you will need : non toxic paints , marker , paste and scissors , paper plate and several construction paper. Cut your paper plate in half and let your smart kid do the painting. This will be our nest, Trace hand on a construction paper , cut it and draw some cute faces on it. Put the cut out hand inside the "nest".



Since we do not have noodles in hand, We used alphabet pasta to make our N collage.
You can find the collage sheets here : Alphabet Letter Collage





Lastly , we made our File Folder Noah's Ark , you will need a print out of animals in pairs, a file folder ( because it is large enough for our ark and animals) , a black and brown construction papers ( draw an ark like structure - doesn't need to be perfect!) , some paste and scissors.


 You can find the animals in pairs printable here ( this is also where I got the idea for this crafts) :
