Teach the letter C in one week!

We have 2 kiddos that names start with C so C was a blast! This week I tried to put holds on books at the library and it was not very successful. They didn’t all come in until about Thursday. I’m going to have to get more organized if I’m going to take that approach and start putting holds on books weeks in advance. I’m not there yet!

We are using these free printable worksheets And you can find them here

Supplies

  • Construction paper
  • Markers
  • Colored pencils
  • Stapler and staples
  • Scissors
  • Clear tape
  • Paper plates
  • Empty toilet rolls
  • Cookie dough
    • Repeat repeat repeat

      The very first thing we did was cut out two big visuals, one for the capital B and one for the lower case b. This way we could visually look at them all day long. I decided to display them right in the entry way so we had to walk past them a lot! I just drew some bubble letters on construction paper and cut them out. They aren’t perfect but they work. I don’t have any pictures of this weeks letter but if you want to see my hand drawn letters you can look back at letters A and B.

      Reading material

      like I said I won’t be using the Pinterest page I’ve share previously again for awhile but the books they recommend are good!but if you want to check it out you can Here.

      worksheets and letter books

      Here and there throughout the week we did our worksheets. Caliger loves the letter hunt! And all the kids carried their letter books around all day!

      I’ll take this moment to mention that I do not make the kids trace letters. There Is plenty of time for us to work on writing and a way that we get ready for that is through fine motor songs, sign language, and fine motor activities. I do not want to burn the kids out and get them started to soon so I might mention it to them but I never make them do it.

      Activities

      We also used the free printable play dough cookie mats I have. Check them out Here
