At the beginning of the lessons I usually show the clip from the Leapfrog Letter Factory DVD for the featured letter and we practice singing the letter sound. Then I introduce the topic for the day and we do a letter craft based around it.
Books We Read
- Penguins Love Their ABCs by Sarah Aspinall: My daughter loves this series of books about penguins learning new concepts. This one provided a great review of the whole alphabet.
- Be Brave, Little Penguin by Giles Andreae: A sweet story about a little penguin who is scared of swimming.
- Little Penguin Gets the Hiccups by Tadgh Bentley: This is a really fun, interactive story of a penguin who is trying to get rid of his hiccups and needs the reader’s help. It is good for many laughs!
- Little Penguin Stays Awake by Tadgh Bentley: In the same format, this one asks the reader to help the penguin stay awake so he can make a wish on a shooting star. These books are really fun to read aloud!
- Penguin and Pinecone by Salina Yoon: There are several books about this cute penguin that my kids enjoy, but I thought this one was perfect for the lesson since it included another p word with pinecone!
Activities We Did:
Snack We Ate
At the end of each lesson
We always sing the alphabet song, read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and add the letter to our coconut tree.
I usually do two lessons for each letter, but only share one outline on here for the sake of time. The other lesson we did this week was P is for Polar Express and it was a lot of fun!
