Letter M Activities for Kids

We have started working with a preschool teacher to bring parents a curriculum to help their children learn letters, numbers, colors and more! Each week we are working on a new item, check out all the preschool activities we have covered this far here. This week we are focusing on the letter M, recently it has been popular to skip around with the alphabet so children learn the letter rather than the ABC song.  We would love any feedback in the comments, if you have other activities make sure to leave them too!
