Letter A

Starting today we are going to be posting a letter of the week every Wednesday. It is never too early to start introducing the letters of the alphabet and phonics. Babies and young toddlers are interested in bright colors and shapes. Older toddlers and preschoolers could start to recognize the letters, words that begin with the letters and also the phonics of the alphabet.

So, you guessed it–the letter A is going to be our first adventure! Throughout the upcoming weeks we are going to be creating a letter book. You can use any size paper you want. Probably construction sized paper (by the way Walgreens has 96 count package of construction paper on sale buy one at 1.99 get one free!) or bigger will work.

1.  Free Foto provides pictures of letters with actual pictures of something that starts with that letter. You can enlarge them and paste them to your paper.

2.  You can draw a dotted line letter in the middle of the paper and allow you children to trace the letter with paint, markers, or crayons. Even using their fingers to fingerpaint the lines.

3.  Then you can draw pictures around the letter that begin with the letter A. Or cut out pictures from magazines that begin with the letter A.

Ok, so now that today is A day integrate the letter A throughout your day.

  • For snacks you can eat apple slices or  advocado.
  • To get your kids helping in the kitchen let them help make homemade applesauce.
  • While running errands or on walks talk about people and things you see that begin with the letter A.
  • You can find lots of letter A printables and arts/craft ideas at First-School.ws

If you have any activities or ideas that you would like to share we would love to hear them. Please don’t be shy to leave a comment–We (Reneca and I) really enjoy getting comments and hearing the feedback!

We hope you have an amazing A day!

Reneca and Kalisha
