Glowing Fireflies

What a great week! We had a blast getting to know our new friends while learning! We learned through play and did some exciting activities as well! Today we finished up the letter F sound and made some really fun Fireflies. They even light up! This activity helped with fine motor control, hand writing, letter sounds, problem solving, color identification, and following directions. Before we began making our fire flies we talked about how to write a letter F, and then we all wrote our own! Where do we start our letters? At the top!

This activity also helped reinforce our weekly vocabulary. When it is dark our fireflies shine. The light from our fireflies can be bright!

We used easter eggs, battery operated tea lights, duct tape wings, goggly eyes, and pipe cleaners to make our fun fireflies.
