Week of: May 11th- May 15th
This week we are reviewing previously learned letters a-n and exploring the letter P
The Assignments for this week are below:
1. Practice identifying the letter P in various print forms such as:
- Online articles
- Household packaging
- On your phone or keyboard
- Junk Mail!
*If possible, cut out all the letter P's that you find and make a collage.
2. Go online and search for images that begin with the letter O, copy the picture onto a word document and help your child type the word next to the picture. Complete one or two pictures/words a day or all at once. Once completed, review each picture and its corresponding word on a daily basis. Here's a list of pictures you could look for:
3. Practice writing the letter P
- With your finger, "write it" on a table, in the air and on your arm.
- Practice writing it with chalk, on a touch screen and on paper with different colors.
- In a confined container such as a tin pan or cake pan, fill with either sand, oats, borax, dried beans (or whatever you have) and have them write the letter with their finger. Have them write capital P's and lowercase p's. This will also give your child sensory input.
- On any hard surface, squirt a small amount of shaving cream and rub around and cover a small area, in that area, practice writing the letter P
4. Practice building the letter P
**While completing these activities, continuously point to and repeat phrases such as "this is the letter P" or simply "letter P" or just "P".
- Use pasta, popcorn or any kind of dried food and glue onto a piece of paper in the shape of an P.
- On a piece of paper write the letter p, cover it with small pieces of painters' tape or any colored tape.
- Use playdoh to make an P.
5. Practice identifying the letter P and previously learned letters (a-n) through games/activities
- With chalk and a pitcher of water outside, write the letter O multiple times along with a few other previously learned letters. Have students pour water on every O they can find.
- Hang up two to three pieces of paper at a time. Each paper should have one letter written on it in large print. Station you and your child several feet away from the letters. Tell your child the name of one of the letters that are hanging and have them run, grab it and bring it back to you.
- Using note cards, sticky notes and/or pieces of paper, write a letter on each (make sure there are plenty of pieces with the letter O) and hang up throughout your house. Go on a "hunt" to collect all the pieces that have the letter O written on them.
6. Letter P books to read aloud or listen to on youtube
- One Potato, Two Potato by Cynthia DeFelice
- Poppleton by Mark Teague
- Little Pea by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
- Perfectly Percy by Paul Schmid
- Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White
7. Online videos/games for letter review
- Go to www.teachyourmonstertoread.com and begin a new game. Look for your login information below.
- Go to www.education.com and in the search bar type in "diving lowercase letters".
- Go to www.youtube.com and in the search bar type in "alphabet games find the letter O". It is by the Singing Walrus.

8. Click on the link for a teacher recorded lesson: https://youtu.be/OeRYAqZ_PsI
9. After watching the video, hold up and point to the letter P, say "P" and tell your child the letter P sound while doing this motion: Hold up your left hand, at face level, with your palm facing you, fingers together and slightly tilted to the right, then at the same time, bring your right hand (palm facing you, fingers together and slightly tilted to the left) in front of your left hand and gently swing it back and forth while saying the P sound.
After every/any activity please upload or text me a picture and/or video of your child completing it!
