Our Letter of the week this week is “W”, so we made a Watermelon.
Print the letter W off on Red and Green construction paper
Then layer the W’s with the red W on top of the Green W with some of the green showing to be the rine of the watermelon.
Then allow the students to paint the “seeds” on the watermelon using their fingers.
Once the seeds are painted on the finial project looks like this;
The kids loved painting and it was a very simple project to complete. I have younger children so I always do fingerpainting projects one on one. This gives me a chance to talk about the letter. What is looks like, things that start with the letter and the sound that it makes.
Parents love anything that has their child’s fingerprints, so this was also a hit with the parents as well. I hope you enjoy this activity with your students.
