As we closed in on the last three letters of the alphabet, I had a very difficult time finding enough material to fill an entire week. So, while the title of this post says “Letter of the week,” these last three lessons were more like “letters of the day.”
As I have mentioned in previous posts, we start out each week with an ABC Find It from 1+1+1=1. While we search for the matching images, we discuss the pictures and other words that start with the letter of the week. We also use Letters of All Sizes uppercase and lowercase handwriting worksheets from The Measured Mom. I include these in a binder with number writing worksheets from Confessions of a Homeschooler and a sheet with his name on it that I created. Each page gets its own sheet protector so he can practice writing with a dry erase marker.
Today we began our lesson with a free emergent reader from Teachers Pay Teachers called “At The Zoo.” Then we did several pages from 3 Dinosaur’s Zoo preschool and kindergarten packs. We also used zoo printables from A Teaching Mommy, as well as some leftover activities from our previous Z lesson, but I don’t remember where they came from! (*Sorry*)
