Preschool Letter Q is finally here!

Filip is now 4 and a half years old. He attends preschool 3 days each week, but we are continuing our Preschool Letter of the Week. You see, the preschools in our area don’t focus on academics – kiddos are there to have fun and learn social skills. Full stop. And so, friends, because my little man enjoys our “formal learning” time at home and asks to do school work on the days he is home, we are sticking with it!
As with previous letters, we started with our Letter Q play dough mat.
Filip traced each letter several times and then used play dough to build each one.
We worked on letter identification using the Letter Q page from my Letter Find unit…
And then we used our new stamp set to stamp all the pictures that started with the letter Q….
Filip wanted to stamp the other letters too… so he did! This page is from my Beginning Sounds: Color It unit.
Then we moved on to some letter Q tracing. These cards are from my Write and Wipe Alphabet Cards packet and I have laminated them so that Filip can practice tracing the letters with a whiteboard (dry-erase) marker as often as he pleases throughout the week. Laminating and re-using handwriting practice pages or cards is definitely the way to go if you want to save on paper and ink!
This week’s focus was on number 9, so here he is building it and representing it on our play dough mat.
We finished Day 1 with a Number 9 activity from my Numbers Cut and Paste unit.
We started Day 2 with a Letter Q maze….
Then we continued with our Letter Q worksheet page from my Introducing the Alphabet packet. Filip LOVES this page, in particular, because he also gets to read simple words. I briefly explained that “Q and U stick like glue!” and that they always appear together, but we say the Q sound for both letters. He was satisfied with my explanation and we sounded out the words together because they had “tricky sounds” 🙂
Next, we worked on fine motor skills with a Letter Q printable by From the Pond.
Of course, glitter makes everuthing SO much fun 😀
Then we moved on to a Number 9 maze from my Number Maze packet…
And finished Day 2 with a Number 9 concepts worksheet.
