The Letter A

Preschool Lessons for Letter A

(This post contains affiliate links.)

I’m having so much fun doing preschool again!  Eli and I are focusing on one letter per week or so and doing everything from letter recognition and formation to crafts and recipes.  Just about everything is tactile and involves large or small motor skills, too.

Above are some of the papers we worked on with the letter A.  Many of the printables came from Confessions of a Homeschooler.  Others were found around the internet or born in my little ole brain.

Eli and I both loved this animal magnifying glass activity from Kelly’s Kindergarten.

We’re making a craft alphabet across the schoolroom wall.  This giant construction paper ant starts us off.

We took a family trip to the apple orchard, too!

  1. I sooo wish I would have thought of the magnifying work for my kids! What a neat way to get them to ‘look’ into things! I still may conjur up some ways of using that. Is there any way to contact you if I needed to send you a confidential note? I had a few questions that I was wondering if you could help me with…

  2. Hi Cindy! Looks like you’re haveing a great time with preschool…I miss those days (my youngest is 2nd grade this year). I was just wondering how you are doing with the history curriculum? We are doing the same one (for my 9th grdr and my 7th grdr) and are have a few bumps getting used to the style, but overall, I really like it. I appreciate your input.

  3. Allison,

    Ancient Civilizations and the Bible is going so well!! It fits my style perfectly! I’m not getting to nearly everything that’s suggested – there’s just way too much. But that doesn’t bother me since we’re learning a ton.

  4. Oh, thank you! I knew someone would be able to find that site for me again. 🙂 It has lots more fun printables, too!
