The Letter A

As I am typing this, our littlest is three years old, now. The older munchkins are almost 8 & 10 and it seems like just yesterday that I was writing about preschool for them. Time flies when you are having fun!

I’m planning to work my way through the alphabet, like I did before, and post what I have found as resources for you to see.

The Alphabet

I like to start the day with an alphabet song and then end it with another. I try to find videos that vary in style and tune and presenter.

Letter A Videos

There are so many different letter videos available online. Some of them focus on the name of the letter and others on the sound of the letter.

I tend to watch a video, then do an activity or snack and then watch another video, etc. Here are some of my favorites:

Letter Activities

Years ago, I purchased the Highlight a Letter activity by Abby Mullins I’m still happy with this purchase, and a newer version is now available WITH picture highlighting, on Teachers Pay Teachers.

Duplo Alphabet Mats by 123 Homeschool 4 Me are also fun.

Letter Crafts

We enjoy the Printable Letter A Craft – A is for Alligator, by Fun with Mama She lists all materials necessary and includes a printable guide.

Another adorable craft is Ants on Apples from Kidz Activities

A classic throwback art project is Apple Stamping. The Measured Mom has a wonderful page, giving instructions on this activity.

Letter Snacks

Robot Snack by See Vanessa Craft is super cute. It is made with apple sauce and apple juice containers (sticking with the A theme, for us) with raisin box feet and cute googly eyes. The raisins can be used to make ants on a plate!

Some wonderful tools are available on Amazon for snack time.
