The last two weeks we have been exploring letter E activities.   Check out these ideas to support our letter learning and build math skills as well!  

1 – Counting - Count the Eggs

The kids added brightly colored “eggs” to nests numbered 1-10.  My Four and Five did this on their own.  My Two enjoyed doing it with me.  See my original post here.

2 – Ordering Big and Small Elephants

I printed these from Confessions of a Homeschooler.  My Four had no trouble ordering them from smallest to biggest and biggest to smallest. I was surprised at how challenging this was for my Two.  Looks like we have more ordering activities in our future!

3 – Measuring - Egg Carton Measuring

This is such a fantastic idea for nonstandard measurement, and egg cartons fit right in with Letter E.  Get the details at The Imagination Tree.

4 – Shapes - Pattern Block E

I have a set of pattern  blocks from my teaching days. You can get these beautiful patterns free from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

5 – Counting & Addition - Counting & Make 10 with Egg Cartons

Here’s another idea for egg carton math.  My Four and Five worked together — my Four put in some of his 10 green gems, and his sister filled in the extra spaces with her blue ones.  She wrote the number sentences, too.  Get the full lesson from Learn with Play at Home.

6 – Counting, Number Recognition, Representation - Egg Carton / Duplo Math

Here’s another wonderful idea from Learn with Play at Home. I love that it’s so versatile. I used this with my five-year-old to help her count by 10′s when forming larger  numbers. But you can use it very simply for your Two, Three, or Four.  Just make the numbers smaller.  For instructions, visit here.

7. Number Recognition - Match the Numbered Elephants

At Confessions of a Homeschooler, she uses these elephants for counting. I used them for number recognition. I printed out two sets and had my Two match the numbers. He only knows a couple of numbers by sight, so this was a way to start reinforcing them.

8 – Counting & Ordering - Order the Numbered Elephants

Letter E Math 8 the measured mom Math Activities for Preschoolers   the letter E

Here’s another way to use those elephant numbered cards from Confessions of a Homeschooler - just put them in order.  My Four started by going down from to 1; then he put them in order from 1-10.

  2. Thanks for the great math ideas for the letter “e”. I featured the counting eggs with the numbered nests in my blog post when I spent a week teaching the letter “e” to my son. Thanks for the inspiration. http://howlinghorn.blogspot.com/2014/02/a-week-of-letter-e.html
