The Letter P

Preschool Lessons for the Letter P

After reading a book about penguins, Eli colored a picture of a polar region that I found online…somewhere?

These pattern puzzles were made with foam animal stickers and cardstock.  One long  piece of cardstock holds four stickers of the pattern, another smaller piece of cardstock holds two more stickers in the pattern.  Your little one matches the pattern cards.

Eli filled a letter P template with pom-poms.

We talked about the parts of a plant and played with our life cycle cards again.

Of course, we played with pattern blocks and pulled out the pattern cards.

Have you ever played penny drop? It’s fun, especially when your preschooler is better than you!  Stand in a chair and try to drop pennies in a cup on the floor.  That’s all there is to it.



More painting!  Equal parts flour and water + a little food coloring made a very simple finger paint. Freezer paper is perfect for finger painting.

Eli completed some purple pages in his Dollar Tree workbooks.

A popsicle made from construction paper and popsicle sticks hangs on our alphabet wall.

Very simple omemade puppets were the hit of a puppet show.

We found turkey prints during a nature walk!

A windy day called for “playing” with the wind.

Way back when Eli was a baby, I got a free subscription to Parents Magazine (I think). Anyway, they sent along wonderful little Sesame Street workbooks. This one was on the theme of pets.

Sorry, I had to include this photo even though it has nothing to do with the letter P. Eli said he was headed to his grandparents house a 1/4 mile away. He didn’t get far.
