PreK week in review: Letter of the Week ~ U

This post may contain affiliate links which help support my family. Thank you for stopping by.


Fifi still loves her weekly Letter of the Week lessons and I have found that I have had to add activities from other sources because she works so quickly and then asks for more. For this I am grateful, even though it has doubled my preparation time for her. For some inexplicable reason, I didn’t take many photos this week.

Do-a-Dot paint letter U. I have yet to find the do-a-dot paints in South Africa (and importing them is an extremely costly exercise), but I did come across Bingo markers a few years ago that do the trick.

I printed off a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree (link below in the resources) for her to mark off which letters we have done.
This goes in the front of her file. We use lowercase letter stickers.
