We have been going through the preschool curriculum I wrote with my 4-year-old this year. He loves it and I love that we do hands-on activities together. Lately, I’ve been feeling like we are needing more practice with each alphabet letter. So, I decided to start creating printables for each letter we go through. Of course, I’ll be sharing all 26 sets of printables on the blog! After I’m done with all the letters, I’ll compile them into a nice little eBook for easy access for you all. Does that sound good to you? I know these printables have helped our preschool day and it reinforces the letter we are working on. Plus, it gives us more practice using writing utensils, tracing lines, scissor practice, and more. Today I’ll be sharing our letter N printable pack. We did N is for Nest…and all the while we dreamt about the warmer days of spring when we’ll see those nests and birds again! 🙂 Here is a peek at what the packet looks like…
Here are a couple sample pages from the packet.
And here is my preschooler in action. For tracing practice, we used oil pastels, since those are his favorite writing utensils. We are still working on holding the utensil in a tripod grip.
For the counting eggs exercise, I wrote the number in the box after he counted the eggs. This is great practice for one-to-one correspondence (meaning they have the ability to match one object to one corresponding number).
We did patterns with our Do-a-Dot markers.
On one page of the packet, there is a nest of birds. You can choose to connect the dots or cut off the birds, punch out holes on the black circles, and then use shoestring to lace around the nest. We did both and it was great practice for him.
