Pre-Kindergarten – Letter Aa

So many people wonder what to do with their Pre-Kindergarten kiddos to provide a well rounded curriculum.  Well, I’d love to share our plan with you!  Each week we have a focus on a letter, color/shape, math concept and Bible story.  Follow along at your own Preschool school or at home with your little one for ideas!  Join us!

We have two different age groups of cuties with us.  Preschool, which are young 3’s to young 4’s and Pre-K, which is 4’s-5’s.  Today I’ll share “What we did” with our Pre-Kindergarten kiddos for letter Aa week.

We spent a long introduction on letter Aa, what shape it has and the sound it makes.  Then we get the chance to practice!  We built letter A on foam mats with wood pieces from Handwriting Without Tears.

Then we tried it with shaving cream.  Oh the joyful giggles we got upon success.  Makes it all totally worth it!!

On the second day of letter Aa practice we use “Wipe It” boards.  Basically I printed out the “Wipe It” pages and then insert them into page protectors.  They make great wipe off boards.  If you make a mistake, no worries!!

We also color the “Read it” books for letter Aa.  They are books that progress through various sight words during the year.  We begin with simply a word and end up adding on sight words to make simple sentences.  The entire set of Read-It books will be available in my shop soon!

At this point in the year we search for letter Aa in the book and color it with a marker.  Later we’ll search for sight words.

For Math we also worked on sorting by color.  We sorted paper apples in various forms, pom pom balls and bugs.  The kids loved it!   You can find the apple game below in my apple pack.apple sort

To add a fine motor element sometimes we use clothes pins to pick up and move the objects or kid tweezers.sort bugs

We also read the story of David and Goliath and make stick puppets.

We had such a great week.  It’s amazing to see all they can learn in such a short amount of time!

Apple Time

I just love Fall!  Cooler weather (at least in Colorado), changing of leaves and back to school.  One of my favorite Preschool themes is Apples.  It naturally lends itself to the study of colors, sizes and lots of amazing and fun art projects.  I plan to share several things with you over the next few weeks, but let’s start with a great apple counting game. Apple Sort 2
