Letter F activities to help preschoolers learn the alphabet!

Letter F Activities for Preschool are a fun and hands-on way for toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartens to learn and practice the alphabet. Letter F in our preschool was made up of fairy and frog printables. As well as a fun fireworks sensory activity with shaving cream. Check it out!

One area of writing where my children are particularly lucky is their last name. Frey. It’s short, easy to write, and it means their last name is at the beginning of the alphabet. It’s pretty much always mispronounced thanks to Game of Thrones and my husband’s ancestors from changing it from Frei to Frey, but that is neither here nor there.

The letter F! It’s the topic of this blog post and the next letter in our Letter of the Week curriculum. Our homeschool preschool was filled with lots of books, lots of play, and some sit down work. Today I’m going to show you some books to go along with a few worksheets and sensory activity all relating to the letter F.

Homeschool preschool doesn’t need to be difficult or overthought. Actually just reading aloud to your children is enough! But if your kids are anything like mine, they enjoy doing “school” aka sitting and doing worksheets, then this is the blog post for you. Homeschooling is personalized for each family, one of the main reasons homeschool families choose to homeschool in the first place!

Our preschool “curriculum” was super simple and followed the “Letter of the Week” format. For the letter “F” we did activities that related to fairies, frogs, and fireworks. At ages 3 and 5, we spent about 30 minutes to an hour each day a few sit down activities and crafts. Most of the time the kids were playing together, but we also read books, went to the library, and spend time with our homeschool group.

Letter F Activities for Homeschool Preschool

Day One – Worksheets and A Fly Went By

Who else had this book growing up and read it religiously?! There is something so fun about reading a book you read as a kid to your own kids. Did I say fun? I mean surreal. I mean seriously, when did we become the grown-ups?! I swear sometimes I look around my house and think to myself, “These kids look to me. I’m in charge! When did this happen?!” But I digress.

A fly is followed by a menagerie of characters in this humorous cumulative tale edited by Dr. Seuss. I love this book so much I kept it for my own kids. But if you don’t own it, you can order from Amazon here!

Our Letter F printables were a Fairy Printable Pack from 1+1+=1 and just like all of Carisa’s worksheets, my kids loved these.

They include tracing, sorting, 1:1 correspondence, mazes, dot pages, and more. They are totally free to download at the link I provided above.

Day Two – Animal ABCs and The Story of Ferdinand

Ferdinand doesn’t want to butt heads with other bulls (literally), he would rather sit and smell the flowers. So what will happen when Ferdinand is picked for the bullfights in Madrid? Find out in this classic book with a timeless message.

The Animal ABC printables, also from Carisa also,  are another family favorite. If you kids love animals they will love these vibrant and fun worksheets. There is a cost if you want to purchase the ENTIRE set, but you can download the individual letters for free to find out if you child likes them.

They including coloring sheets, tracing sheets, information page, a letter craft, and more!

Day Three – Sensory Play and The Rainbow Fish

My kids were first introduced to Rainbow Fish as a board book but the longer picture book is wonderful as well. A cute story about the universal message of sharing is caring.

The letter F sensory activity was shaving cream fireworks. You put shaving cream on a tray, add glitter and food coloring, and use paint brushes to make a firework design.  They didn’t quite turn out how I (or the kids) imagined. They looked at me like I was crazy (as usual) but they dove in anyway.
