Noah's 1st Mat Man

Today Noah made his very first Mat Man all by himself. This activity is part of Handwriting Without Tears, (Get Set For School preschool curriculum. We LOVE this program!! Noah is already writing the capital letters and numbers very well and without any reverses or letter confusion. We are using the slate chalkboard, woodpieces and the workbook.

Note: frugal schooling here...I made Mat Man's hands by tracing Noah's hands on blue contruction paper. Didn't see a need to purchase the ones offered by the company (I'm sure they are more durable than mine). I told Noah Mat Man was going to wear his hands. We thought this was great! I used modeling clay for the eyes, nose and belly button. Wood pieces and blue letter mat are from HWT.
