Letter I




Here's our preschool plan for letter I:

We used waxed paper for the "ice." I actually let Red Chief loose with the glue bottle for part of these activities, and he did very well. I always underestimate him.

Here's an alternative to singing the song we've been doing, kindly shared by Mrs. V.
"B" says buh
(the farmer in the dell)
"B" says buh
(the farmer in the dell)
Every letter makes a sound
(high ho the dairy oh)
"B" says buh
(the farmer in the dell)

If the letter has two sounds (like C)
It would go:
"c" says kuh
(the farmer in the dell)
and "c" says suh
(the farmer in the dell)
Every letter makes a sound
(high ho the dairy oh)
"c" says kuh and suh
(the farmer in the dell)
I really like having another option. Thanks!

  1. A lot of kindergarten classes use the Farmer in the Dell version. Kaia sang it to me all the time.

    I love all your preschool ideas. Mo seems to be doing well without the activities, but I think he'd enjoy doing so many of the things you are doing with Red Chief. And I'm afraid we won't be able to afford just a few days of pre-kinder for him next year like we did with Kaia, so I definitely need to come up with some lesson plans for him.

  2. "Every letter makes a sound the... says..." This is almost always stuck in my head because one or the other or both of my kids always seem to be singing it. My niece even picked it up when she was here a few weeks ago and my sister is just so thrilled about it. (Totally being sarcastic with the last bit.) :-)

  3. I love the new look on your blog. I didn't know you were so creative. I love reading about all your new and creative ideas. Your kids have a great mom.

  4. Love the letters! I'm planning on doing something similar with my daughter after the holidays. Do you do a letter a day?

  5. I wish we did a letter a day. That was my original plan. Right now we do a letter whenever we get time and Red Chief is in a sit-down-at-the-table mood.
