Letter Yy and Letter Zz Week

I decided to combine letters Y and Z last week. Two of the boys here are going to Kindergarten and we needed to finished our binders. In addition to completion of our binders, I enrolled three little girls in daycare so it has been an adjustment for everyone. New routines for everyone. Two girls are sisters and have never been in a daycare setting. They have always stayed with family while mom worked. And the other little girl was taken out of a daycare that her mom was not happy with. So this little girl will be here with her little cousin which is nice. This is now our second week with our new little ladies, and things are coming around nicely.

This is their lap book
I printed the Y picture word cards from the internet and placed on the side to recognize other words that begin with the letter. The tracer sheet I printed from First School along with the mini book.

Zz printables found here all ideas from Pocketful of Posies.

This is the front of the lapbook

Y is for Yellow Yarn
This was funny to watch the tots getting the yarn stuck to their hands because it was sticky from glue!
I printed this Y sheet from here

Looks like you had some great activities for Y & Z which are two hard letters. Thanks for linking back to me. :-)

Hi Lori! I'm stopping by to thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on "I Pee Myself!" I am definitely going to be following you -- I am a teacher turned stay-at-home mom, and for some reason, all those wonderful ideas I had planned to do with my kids seem to have leaked out of the holes that formed in my brain when Mommy brain took hold!

I swear, half the time I can't think of diddly-squat to do with my two little ones, and here I was, an elementary music teacher who could come up with awesome lesson plans in two seconds flat!

Why is it so different with my own kiddos? Maybe because my son refuses to do anything the way I suggest, and instead turns all crafts and projects into his own personal excuse to build a rocketship or a transformer, but hey, I guess I've just got to work with it, right?

Anyway, I'll be following and looking forward to some more great ideas! Thanks for stopping by!

Smiles, Jenn
