Letter H Song

This is our new favorite YouTube Channel!! It's really hip, and they have done all the letters and even done the alphabet song in a hip-hop got the beat kind of music. The song also teaches them to 'write' the capital and lower cases of the letter in the air. But I stumbled upon their blog rather by accident, and now am in love with their videos they have on YouTube. Have Fun Teaching is great!
Since letter H is the letter of the week we are going to make helicopters, and yesterday we made a paper house with simple shapes. We are reading books that start with the letter H- like Halloween Howl, Hello Shoes!, Up in Heaven, Harbor, Horton Hatches the Egg , Henry and the Buccaneer Bunnies, etc.

Another thing I found and printed off for him was a list of H items in square boxes (2 whole pages)... surprisingly he knew what most of the things on each page were... there were a few complicated ones like hen (he called it a rooster), hook, and hut- and I can see how hut would be hard, seeing as no one that we know who lives in Iowa lives in huts. Get this download here, from Homeschool Launch... where you can network with other homeschoolers and share files too!

Maybe we will make a small cardboard house for his train table sometime this week too, which would include painting and I just usually try to avoid that all together... but maybe I need to jump in with both feet, and let him do it!
