We love to find creative ways to write the alphabet! Today I’m sharing a set of ideas for making letter P.
It was easy to come up with ideas for making letter P – what a great letter!
You may have seen my letter writing stations for letter K. I decided to do the same thing for letter P. My Four had a hard time being patient when I was setting this up and couldn’t wait to get started. He was even willing to hop off his Big Wheel and come inside to do some work!
I like to print a giant block letter and have him fill it with objects that begin with the letter. First he used pom poms.
Since my Four knows his letters and sounds, this is a bit easy for him, but he still enjoys it. It’s actually the perfect handwriting activity for my Two (and the only one he does, so far).
My husband keeps a stash of peanuts in his office, and the kids visit him every morning for one. We raided the stash so my Four could fill this letter with them. If you have a peanut allergy at your house, you could always use packing peanuts.
After filling in the block letter, he worked at making the letter without a guideline. Here’s our popcorn P.
A paper clip P!
P is for play dough! Perfect!
Here he wrote the letter P in Parmesan cheese.
Writing letter P in peanut butter – yum! Another option is to write it in pudding.
Here he writes the letter P using a beginning handwriting page. I don’t think he’s using the best posture for letter writing in this photo. I struggle with helping my two lefties. The jury is still out on my youngest boy… what if all of the boys are left-handed? (2022 update: Out of our six kids, four are lefties, including this little guy!)
Here’s a level two page. He enjoys these.
He agreed to do just a few P’s on our level three page. I designed these for older preschoolers and beginning kindergartners and don’t insist on them yet. When he gets closer to starting kindergarten, we’ll work on them more.
Alphabet Curriculum for Preschool
Our curriculum includes lessons for teaching both upper and lowercase letter names and sounds. You’ll get three lessons per letter, built-in review, simple handwriting practice, rhyming, syllable counting, phonemic awareness, and a whole lot more!
Hello! So pleased to find such beautiful graphics in your preschool alphabet ideas. I am a Nana now for 3 years after retiring from teaching Kdg. for 30.
Thank you so much for sharing with those of us who are tech challenged. In my day, computers were as large as a room ! This would be impossible for me to find time to make these, even if I had the know how! Which of course I don’t. Baby # 2 arrived in February ! Many blessings to you. My
Granddaughter loves school time each morning! She will be three in 2 weeks!
It sounds like you’re having a wonderful time in this new phase of life, Jennifer! Congratulations on those sweet babies!
