Letter of the Week – Letter I

Letter of the week preschool activities and crafts are a fun and hands-on way for toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartens to learn and practice the alphabet. Letter I can mean only one thing: ice cream! Ice cream printables, ice cream cone craft, and ice sensory play made with snow!

Letter I was all about one thing: ICE CREAM! I usually pull our letter of the week work from multiple sources but I went with the ice cream unit from Little Monkey Printables. I wanted to keep it simple since we did part of this unit while we are at my sisters house. The best thing about homeschooling: it can be done anywhere!!

The Bear used her markers for her do-a-dot pages rather than the stamps. She felt compealed to use the color pink.

The girls work on their ice cream color books. Fofo went to a preschool outside the home when she was 3 and 4. One thing she LOVED was all the simple, little books they made. This one has a different color for each ice cream cone.

The vehicle for our transportation book was? An ice cream truck from Royal Baloo

I did my best to introduce a little algebra to the girls, but they weren’t interested. They had running around to do at my sisters’. I should have timed it better so they weren’t losing interested before I started the activity, but I will try again another time.

Our craft for the Letter I was “I”nventing an “I”ce cream flavor. I had a number of colors of construction paper. The girls picked a color and cut out an ice cream scoop to add to the top of the cone. It was so cute to see what flavor they picked out with each color. Fofo’s was strawberry, lemon, blueberry, and grape with icing. Bear had two cones. One was strawberry, blueberry, and watermelon. The other was strawberry and lemon.

Our sensory activity for the Letter I was a play on the word Ice, shocking I know. We got SO MUCH SNOW here in Wisconsin this winter that I thought we should bring the snow in for the girls to play with. I added their My Little Pony toys to the pile (inspired by Me and Marie Learning) since I knew what would draw them it. And boy did it!! They probably played with the snow for hours since they asked to do it a few times. We even added food coloring to changed the color of the snow, and added hot water to get the snow to melt.

And there is our work for the Letter I. I love having these posts to look back on. Who knows if I would have taken as many pictures or remembered each unit if I didn’t blog about them. Thanks for reading!!

  1. That sensory learning with the snow looks like so much fun!! You know, I have never thought to bring the snow inside – brilliant!! No snow here right now. I’m not sure if we will get anymore either, but there’s always next year.

    1. Thanks! I saw an idea for using ice and insects but I figured the girls would get too cold doing that. The snow ended up being the perfect temp for them to play with.
