Letter E activities for preschool, five ways to reuse printables!
Our preschool “curriculum” was super simple and followed the “Letter of the Week” format. For the letter “E” we did activities that used our worksheets in a different way. At ages 3 and 5, we spent about 30 minutes to an hour each day doing these formal sit down activities and crafts. The girls spend a lot of time playing together. We also read books, walk the dogs, and spend time with our homeschool group.
As I was editing all the photos from this week, I had all the usual: ABC book, writing practice, phonic books, etc. Same old, same old. So this week instead of showing the same old school work, I thought I would show a couple of examples of how we reuse printables. Not all homeschoolers print off endless amounts of material, but for those of us who do we want to be able to use them several times and get more than one use out of them.
Letter E Activities for Preschool
First up are alphabet mazes where you simply follow a specific letter from point A to point B. E was follow the e’s to get the elephant to the peanut. Both girls love these, and will even do them multiple times so I put them in sheet protectors and they use dry erase markers. This way they can do them over and over agin.
After several times, they do get a little bored with the dry erase markers so we switched it up with some Q-tip painting. They both love to paint so this was a big hit!
Another printable I needed to find another use for is Rainbow writing. My girls lost interest in the rainbow writing aspect awhile ago. It’s simply writing the letter over and over again with different letters which give it a rainbow effect. Unfortunately I had printed off the whole alphabet so I had to figure out a way for them to use them.
The first use was as a play-doh mat. They are both play dough junkies so they really enjoyed this. The mats are just regular card stock so the play dough does stick. However, if they were laminated it would have made for easy clean up.
We also painted the letters. Bear used a regular paint brush but Fofo wanted to continue with the Q-tip paints.
