This week we are reviewing letters E, F, G and H. So I don’t have a new letter to share. Instead I am going to share the activities we have done for all of the letters so far. I will include links to the original posts. Many of our letter of the week crafts come from No Time for Flashcards.
Last week we reviewed the letters A-D. Here is a look at some of the activities we did to reinforce the letters.
We used our letter cookie cutters and cut out the letters A-D.
Hailey sorted the letters A-D.
We started putting together Hailey’s book of ABC’s using the letter projects we did during the week we focused on that letter.
For each letter, Hailey glued the letter template that she has decorated onto construction paper and then put it into a page protector. Then she also added her letter project. When we finish the whole alphabet I think we’ll have a pretty cute book!
We officially started back to “school” last week. I know it’s a bit late but I wanted to wait until after our trip to Disney World to start. So, last week was our first week. We are going to go through the alphabet all over again. So we started this week with the letter Aa.
The first activity we did was to decorate the letter A. Hailey used water colors to paint the letter A.
We are going to make an alphabet book this year with a page for each letter. I found this idea at Homeschool Creations. Hailey cut out the apple shape all by herself, then ripped it in half (to make it look like it had been eaten). Then she ripped the white rectangle and added some fingerprints for seeds. We will use this for our Aa page in the alphabet book.
Then Hailey made fingerprint ants. She had a hard time understanding my directions of three dots right next to each other to make the ant. But we got a few ants out of it.
Hailey practiced writing the letter Aa on these wipe off cards. She did pretty good tracing the letters but then she decided to color the whole card, so you can’t see where she practiced writing.
You can see other letter A activities here.
Last week was a review week for us and we reviewed the letters A, B, C and D.
Each day we did one of these to review a letter. I saved the letters from a project we did during the week when Hailey first learned the letter. And I printed out pictures and words that started with that particular letter.

My mom bought these fun letter shaped cookie cutters for Hailey. So, we used them for several projects. For this one- we used the letters, paint and paper.
Hailey dipped the letters into the paint and then stamped them onto the paper. (And also ate some, as you can see from the green around her mouth.)
We used the cookie cutters to cut out playdough.
And then, of course, we made cookies. Hailey is dumping the sugar into our bowl.
And sampling some of the cookie dough (I only let her do this BEFORE I added the eggs. Do not let your child sample cookie dough with raw eggs in it.)

Be sure to come back everyday when I will post our activities about our theme this month (fall), our color, shape and number (orange, triangles and 3) and our Bible theme (Noah).
