Letter L - Lion Week


These are our homeschool preschool activities for the Letter L and Lions week. Archer was 31 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 work from the week. The shelf had a letter construction capital and lowercase letters, an Alphabet ReaderMeet the Phonics Letter Reader, and a peg letter.
I'm trying to include readers to read together, as well as books about the week's letter or animal. We had an Animal Antics ReaderFirst Little Readers book, a couple of non-fiction sight words readers, a Meet the Sight Words Reader,  My "l" Book and Wild Animals Babies.

There were his shelves for the week. I used Magnatiles to make an L on his white board and added some magnetic letters and fridge phonics. On top I have his Alphabet Soup Can, some lions, and his preschool basket.

Shelves on the left had a rainbow set, a sequencing puzzle, a safari sorting truck and squigz. Shelves on the right had
Magna Quibix, a 12 piece puzzle, shape turtles, soft/hard sorting, a screw driver board and a basket of cars.
