I love teaching my kids about letters and their sounds! (Looking for tips? Sign up for my free email series.)
My Two loves doing learning activities with me, so we spend about 15-20 minutes a day doing letter of the week. I find my activities in the daily lessons or appendix of my letter of the week curriculum.
Here’s what we did for letter E!
This is a dot marker page from the free Learning the Alphabet. I like starting with these because they’re a simple way to introduce the letter and its shape.
My Two also hunted for letter E’s on our free letter find page.
As long as we were having fun with dot markers, I pulled out this letter maze. These are a little trickier for her, as I need to show her how to follow the letters in order. I’d say the letter mazes are better for older learners, but she enjoys doing them with help. (These are a subscriber freebie! Sign up here.)
Here’s another printable from Learning the Alphabet. I cut out the letter E pictures and helped my Two name them as she glued them on the block letter.
Lately, my Two has started writing letters on her own – mostly A’s, M’s, and H’s. So I asked her if she wanted to try an E. You can see my sample in the upper left corner, and her attempt at making her own. 😉
What a great math center this turned out to be! Since my Two only counts objects to 3, I thought I could help her practice that. I put 1, 2, or 3 dots in each space of the egg carton. Then I gave her some colorful glass gems.
I helped her count the dots in each space and then put the corresponding number of gems inside. She did great!
Now that we’ve learned nine letters, it’s getting harder to remember ones we’ve learned in previous weeks. So we do a lot of simple alphabet review, like this one. I wrote letters on a piece of paper, named them one by one, and she dotted them with the do-a-dot marker.
This turned out to be another great activity for reviewing the letters we’ve learned, so I’m definitely going to try it again! I just made a grid, wrote letters we’ve learned in the boxes, and pulled out some uppercase alphabet stamps (I recommend these), and a washable ink pad.
Then she filled each space with the proper letter. She quit before the grid was complete (no problem – I don’t force her to start or finish activities. She’s two!).
Are you familiar with Elmer, the patchwork elephant? I admit that I’m not a huge fan of the books, but my Two likes them (especially this one). So I printed an elephant pattern I found online and cut up construction paper into little squares.
Then she went to town with her glue stick. Poor Elmer… by the time she was finished all we could see were his feet!
Here’s one more whole alphabet activity. I wrote familiar letters on envelopes and brought out our laminated letter cards. (Get your letter E cards at the end of this post.)
Then I had her sort them by putting the letters into their corresponding envelopes.
This kept her quite busy!
Easter egg printing is a very easy (fun) process art activity. We always use washable tempera paints. For obvious reasons!
And that’s our look at letter E. We hope you found some fun things to try!
