School with Letter F


Letter F was fun.  There's a lot that can be done with food, actions and places to visit.  I'm not saying we went to a farm or rode a firetruck.  We didn't make a fan and he didn't eat frosting out the can but, we could have.


Letter writing is a definite daily and weekly thing. There is no fine-tuning.  I'm happy when it resembles the letter.  Working in between lines is a challenge but he concentrates very hard.


F is for face.  He cut out the parts, glue and applied them to the appropriate spots.


F is also for firemen! Fire hats, hoses 


and fire hydrants.  We went outside to color ours more accurately.


Our first snack was goldfish.  I could have picked up some Swedish fish but, Halloween was the other day and we don't need more candy.


F is for fireworks.  This worksheet is a favorite for him.  He likes to dab the spots with the bingo dabbers.


I found this fish counting/match cards.  If you can't figure out the numbers then you have to count and figure it out.


This is an old spiral dry erase workbook with various activities to do.


I would have liked to take him fishing but, I let him play the fishing game instead and sometimes games are more fun then waiting patiently to catch a fish.


Lastly, F is for flying.  Bats are for Halloween so this was a perfect craft for the week.  Here is the original post and instructions for this fun craft!

  Thank you for following along in our school.  I hope you walk away with a little inspiration and motivation to teach and play with your kids!

    1. My kids have never gone to preschool and even with my son I wondered how much he would get from it. Maybe it depends on the school but I think if we are staying home together he should be learning something.
