Letter G preschool



G is for gorilla, grapes, goose and Grover.  Those are some of the items on the desk the first day of letter G.

Each week I try to take full advantage of the letter.  Worksheets help with visual skills, hand writing, pre-reading, scissor practice.  Props including games, crafts and other activities help reinforce the learning.  Hands on learning completes the circle of learning.


For this worksheet you listen to the statement and circle the appropriate letter. G is for gumballs!


This worksheet can be used in multiple ways.  Playdough was the chosen resource today but, you can use the dot markers, cereal, candy or pompoms.


I pulled out the letter G stamp to stamp on the goat this week.  He has not seen the letter stamps before now but liked them.


G is for garage.  Of course he didn't make this but, we sat on the floor playing with Legos together.  When I presented him with this we discussed what it was (he called it a shed) and I showed him what to do with it.


Q-tip painting the upper and lowercase G.  I encourage him to slow down and make precise paint dots in the circles.  


Coloring skills are funny to watch.  On color by numbers he just wants to initially color just the number.  No, little man keep coloring. This sheet only needed 4 colors to make the picture when you print in color the directions are in the color you need.  So he can "read" 1 is blue.


Lastly g is for golf.  We got outside got moving and some fresh air.

That concluded our letter G for the week.  Each week I can see his retaining a little bit more and its heartwarming to know I have done that!

  1. We're practicing the alphabet with our three-year-old son and this would be a great way to help with tracing the letters.

  3. Repetition is the mother of retention is what I've always been told. This course in the letter "G" proves that saying to be true. Keep up the great job teaching your son!

  12. Such a wonderful way to help little ones remember letters. I had a book like this when I was small called A Hong Kong ABC and I loved it: M is for Moon, Mooncake Festival Night, millions of kites make a magical sight. Was one of my favourites:)
