Letter X Week - X-Ray Fish

These are our homeschool preschool activities for the Letter X and X-Ray week. Archer was 37 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 week and the remainder of the letter weeks will be pretty light. He's outgrowing a lot of the activities (but still asks for them) and we're remodeling our basement, which makes toy rotation and accessing material storage difficult.
This was his shelf setup above his desk. I hung some bulletin board letters, a sign language card (from And Next Comes L) and his work from the week. The shelf had an Alphabet Reader, a Meet the Phonics Letter Reader, and some letter construction.

 I used Magnatiles to make an X on his white board and added fridge phonics. We had a Little People X-Ray fish and his clock.
Tracing cards and line tracing (free to print here).
X-Ray fish page with some bingo chips (free to print here)
Building an X with Cuisenaire Rods (template here). Then he did a lot of other building too.
He also decided he needed the numbers from his Froggy Balance and he started setting up the numbers with the one rods all on his own. Honestly, I probably would not have thought to combine them.
Letter X puzzles
Letter construction (From Tired Need Sleep)
Letter maze (free to print here).
Letter X lacing.
Letter V dot to dot (from He decided he needed his letter construction on the other one.
Making an X on a symmetry mat. This was the first time I introduced an activity like this. I put the pieces on the left and helped him figure out the pieces on the right.
Lots of number play.
Playing his Math Dice game. We play cooperatively rather than competitively.
Doing some mazes.
Rather than doing letter play dough activities, he wanted to use his number cookie cutters.
Exploring with his big brother.
