Letter of the Week ~ C ~ Circles

Do you have any corks lying around?  For the letter C, corks stamp perfect circles.  C is an interesting letter, it has so many sounds.  It can mimic other letter sounds as well, have fun talking about C words while you’re stamping the letter C!

what you need: Letter C ~ corks ~ tempera paint ~ circle object (lids, juice containers, the inside of old tape dispensers.)

Corks are pretty easy to come by, (especially if you drink wine) but if you don’t have any you can find them at the craft store for a couple of dollars.   I also did a little digging and came up with a few other stamping tools.  Look around and see what you can find.  Plastic cups, cookie cutters, water bottle lid; all of these will leave a circle stamp.  On a paper plate, or in a shallow dish, put a small amount of tempera paint.  The size of a sand dollar should work for this, of course if you end up needing more, you can add it later.  Let your little ones dip the cork into the paint and then stamp circles onto the letter C.

Questions (to ask your kids): “Do you think this tool will make the same print as this one?  Why?”   “Which circle do you like the best?” “Count how many circles you have made.  How many more do you think you will add?”
