It’s time for more alphabet fun! This week we’re sharing letter J activities for preschool.
(This post contains affiliate links.)
We kept our activities light this week, for a few reasons. The main reason is that spring has arrived! My little guy spent lots of time outdoors, and I spent hours cleaning out closets and swapping clothes for our five kids. I’m always glad to have that job done!
Another reason we kept it light is because he’s got letter J down… it’s the first letter of his name. With the beautiful weather we opted for more outdoor time and less “at the table” time.
We also read through Learning the Alphabet’s book called “It Begins with J.”
This is one of our favorite Learning the Alphabet printables. It’s a nice follow-up to the book because he can name the pictures again, emphasizing their first sound as he glues them onto the letter. “Jug! /j/, /j/, jug!”
I took a jar from our basement and gave him a some paint to do some jar printing. He also made a jellyfish, but I forgot to get a picture. You can see more letter J crafts in this post.
Since he was in the mood to color, I grabbed this letter find page. If your child doesn’t have the patience to color all the J’s, you could always have him cover them with a transparent counter. (And yes, he colored the letter “t” intentionally. It’s a 3-year-old joke.)
Finally, we did some jumping for letter J math. I wrote the letters 1-10 on the street (it’s a quiet street), and he jumped and named them quite a few times.
His older brother (age 4), saw what I was doing and made his own number train on the street. My Three was happy to jump again. 🙂
See you next week!
