This unit will focus on the letters F, G, and H.
The theme will be All About Me and Body Parts.
We are spending three weeks on this unit, but feel free to make up your own plan!

These online jigsaw puzzles are great to introduce little ones to the computer. Kinsler tried to move the pieces by touching the screen at first. It only took a few minutes for him to understand how to use the mouse.
Make a Fox
Supplies needed: Construction paper, glue, items for the nose, eye, and tail.
We cut out a big F for our fox’s body.
We chose buttons for our nose and eyes. The boys found some feathers in our art cart for the tail.
F is for Fire
Supplies needed: Construction paper, tissue paper, string, and a pipe cleaner.
Cut out logs from the paper. Use the tissue paper to make the fire. The pipe cleaner serves as the stick to roast the “yarn” marshmallow.
My kids love coloring pages, and these fish are too cute. Let your preschooler pick out his favorite. My kids picked out the Anglerfish and Puffer fish.
F is for Fish
Supplies needed: Construction paper, glue, and crayons.
Cut out a fish bowl and fish.
Let your little one glue the fish bowl and the fish onto the paper.
Then, provide crayons for them to decorate the fish bowl.

Erase Me Rhyming
Jodie at Growing Book by Book has some amazing printables and ideas.
Her website is one of my top go-to for reading activities.
This adorable Erase Me Rhyming Activity helped me work on rhyming skills with my preschoolers.
Plus, it provided lots of laughter.
All About Me Drawing Activity
Supplies needed: Butcher paper and crayons.
Trace your little ones on the butcher paper.
Let them decorate their picture and put them on display!
Human Body Videos
Watch Human Body Videos that are just for kids!
I let the kids choose out their favorite videos and follow along!
We chose one theme activity and one letter activity for each day.
Letter Activities for G:
G is for green goo
This worked really well. Our goo was not green (I completely forgot the food coloring!). But at least goo starts with the letter g!
G is for Green Grass
This is super simple. Grab some grass from the great outdoors. And glue it on the free printable. Grab Your Green Grass for the Letter G! (You can also use strips of green construction paper if your grass is too wet like ours!)
Gorilla Cut and Paste
My little guy LOVED this. He is all about monkeys and gorillas.
Grab the free printable above and then count “gumballs” (either pom poms or buttons)
g is for grapes
Take construction paper and cut out a lower case g.
Choose another color and cut out circles for grapes.
Learn the “g” sound as you paste the grapes onto the g.

Investigate Finger Prints
Use a magnifying glass to investigate fingerprints. See how HandMade Kids Art did this!
I could not find our magnifying glass!!
So we used the phone to zoom in and out on our fingerprints.
Improvisation at its finest!
Take the page of fingerprints and turn into artwork.
Flowers, Lions, the ideas are endless HERE.
Week 3 – Letter H Activities
H is for House
Helicopter Shape Craft
Use Clothespins to learn the spelling of your name
Talk about the different faces you can make.
If you are looking to add some more activities, such as busy bags or toys, here are some ideas:
We played with our Melissa and Doug Joey.
We also enjoyed our Melissa and Doug Wooden Bear Family Dress-Up.
The kids played this Frankie’s Food Truck Fiasco game all week.
