I have a little 3-year old who is starting to learn his letters. He wants to do school just like the big kids, however he really does not have a very long attention span. What I have been doing with him is a very loose letter of the week structure. I am updating now that my 4th child is preschool age to add in the Preschool Letter A printables that I have created! See how to download at the bottom of the post. This will be a weekly series until I finish ALL 26 letters.
Here are some fun and easy preschool letter A activities that we have been doing this week.
I used Duck tape to make a giant A on the carpet. The letter can be used to walk on, trace with his hand, plays on it, drives his cars on and just be a reminder him of the letter throughout the day. I left it there for a few days and I think it really helped him remember the letter!
We had a letter A snack with Ants on Apples. I did a little variation of the Ants on a log snack because he does not really like celery, and we were talking about appalls starting with the letter A.
We made an Alligator A craft out of a capital letter A.
We also pulled out our homemade alphabet mat to play with! This is always a favorite at our house!
We made our Letter A book together!
And of course we can’t forget story time. That is essential! Here are the Alphabet Books we read:
For music we use our Wee Sing Children’s Songs and Fingerplays CD. It has lots of great classics and my little ones have always loved it!
He is my busiest little one yet, but we have been having fun learning together for short little bursts of time. 🙂
