WHAT WE DO - ACTIVITIES: During the week we're learning about a particular letter (in this case the Letter Q), we'll often do an activity celebrating that letter. One idea for the letter Q is to work on Quick versus Slow. You can have mini-car races to see which is quicker. You can go running quickly in the park. You can even try to clean up your mess quickly!
WHAT WE DO - CRAFTS:
Quarter rubbing - place a quarter under a piece of paper and rub the edge of a crayon over it. Just like a leaf rubbing, you'll end up with the impression of a quarter. Talk about how the quarter got its name.
a quarter is one fourth of something... in this case the quarter is one fourth of a dollar. Said another way it takes 4 quarters to equal one dollar. Talk about what else comes or can be cut into quarters (for example, pie or cake)
We're lucky in Canada because our quarter has a picture of the British Queen (also a Q word) on one side. You may want to see if you can round up a Canadian quarter for this exercise.
Quilts (paper quilt): Give each child a piece of paper. Fold into Quarters (4 parts) and cut. Have the child decorate each of the four pieces (you can use paint, sparkle glue, stamps, stickers, crayons, feathers, etc). It's nice to put a wide variety of materials out and just let them get creative. Now poke holes around each of the pieces with a hole punch and use wool to lace together the quilt patches. If you're doing this with a group of children you can make one gigantic quilt or you can have the kids swap patches so they can make themselves a quilt with squares their friends have decorated.
Quilt crafts can be nicely combined with other holiday celebrations... for example, decorate with hearts at valentine's day or turkeys at thanksgiving.
