Letter H - Hippo Week

 These are our homeschool preschool activities for the Letter H and Hippos week. Archer was 29 months. You can see our full "curriculum" post here, but we will only use some activities each week. The majority of his time is still unstructured play.
This was his desk setup. I hung some bulletin board letters, a sign language card (from And Next Comes L) and his art from the week. The shelf had a letter construction capital and lowercase letters, a peg letter, an Alphabet ReaderMeet the Phonics Letter Reader and a wooden letter train car.

This was his shelf set up in the playroom. I used Magnatiles to make an H on his white board and added some magnetic letters and fridge phonics. On top I have his Alphabet Soup Can, his preschool basket and some hippos.

Shelves on the left had Hungry Hungry Hippos, an abacus and a 12 part puzzle. Shelves on the right had La la Bloom,  Magna-Qubix , castle blocks, cutting food, magnetic pattern blocks and a basket of cars.
For play dough, we used cookie cutters and a letter stamper (similar to these).  We also used our alphabet dough mat (free to print here).
Letter construction (From Tired Need Sleep)
Tracing cards and line tracing (free to print here).
Writing Hs. He likes that it is one of the few letters he can actually write.
Letter clipping (free to print here).
Case sorting (free to print here).
Various H puzzles.
Letter lacing (laminated and hole punched a bulletin board letter).

Still using magnetic bingo chips for the dot page (free to print here). 

Beginner spelling cards.  He love talking about letters and their sounds!
Painting an H
Dot Art with stickers (from Confessions of a Homeschooler).
He loves this new Alphabet Dot to Dot book! I have to try to limit how many pages he does at a time so he doesn't finish all in one go!
Osmo numbers with Xander.
Puzzles. He is liking puzzles with about 12 pieces or so, although he still needs some guidance.
