Time to add more letters to my letter of the week resources for preschool classes. Today, I am working on letter E Activities. Here is the letter A resources , letter B resources , letter C resources and Crafts for letter D.
I have gathered a list of different letter E activities from crafts, math, letter, recipes, and fine and gross motor skills.
The preschool room I worked in did 2 craft activities a day and one recipe a week. The kids loved to cook and eat what they made.
There were always lots of books different books for each week’s theme. We played games and did physical activities around the letters too. ABCs Yoga for Kids was always a favorite.
