Letter J in Big Thoughts for Little People: ABC’s to Help You Grow




    • From Preschool Palace curriculum: Introduce Letter J– Show your child the Letter J poster. Trace over the letter with your fingers. Ask your child to do the same. Trace the letter J in the air or use personal wipe-off boards. Make a letter J basket that includes several items that start with the letter J. Enunciate the J sound when identifying the items. Ask child to repeat or name the items in the basket.  Then ask child what other items could be put in the basket.
    • Day 1: Introduce the letters Jj using the tactile letters and decorate the Letter Poster to add to the Letter of the Week book.
      Make sure your child does not add a vowel to the end of /j/ as in /juh/
    • Day 2: Use the Letter Posters as Play Dough Mats and role the play dough into ropes and lay on the Letter Poster to form each letter. This adds one more level of learning and is a great fine motor activity, which helps improve handwriting.
    • Day 3:   Discuss how 3 months of the year (January, June, & July) all have the /j/ sound at the beginning

Suggested books from Motherhood On A Dime:


Up to this point the child has only been tracing letters and numbers on tactile surfaces.  To introduce the child to writing his name in a few weeks, begin teaching the child the four basic strokes of all letters and numbers.  This week focuses on drawing a straight line using the worksheet.  Place the child’s pencil on the green dot and say “go.”  Say “stop” when the child is to the red dot.   For more information about the unique ABCJLM Handwriting Process, read Learning to Write.

– Continue having the child trace the tactile letters in her name while saying the Letter Formation Chants.

Numbers  7
Across the sky and down from heaven.  That’s the way to make a seven!

Day 1: Tactile numbers(also called sandpaper or textured)—because many 3 year olds do not have the fine motor skills for handwriting activities, trace the numbers with the child’s finger. As the child traces the tactile numbers, be sure to say the number rhymes included in the objectives to help the child learn the correct information

Day 2: This week decorate the Number 7 Poster with dot paints or outline the number with a black crayon and then paint with a mixture of corn syrup (very little needed), water, and food coloring.  Add seven stickers.

Day 3:

Comprehension Questions: (use when planning story and at the end of the week use them to check for understanding of the Bible story)

What were the names of the boy and the man in this story?
Who did Samuel think was calling him?
What did Eli tell Samuel to do?
Who was calling Samuel?

Fine Motor Skills:  Create a Countdown Chain
Instructions: Choose a date to countdown to (i.e. birthday, vacation, family visiting, or Christmas) 

Supplies: Two colors of construction paper – cut into 1”x8” strips to make 12 and 13 strips of each color (totaling 25 strips – use more or less depending on countdown), glue, a marker, scissors

Directions: Write the numbers on the strips, alternating colors between numbers.
Link the colors together to form a chain using the glue.
Tear off a link each day (starting with the highest number).
Each day, count the links that are left.

•  Gross Motor Skills: 
Create a Memory Obstacle Course using numbers 0-7.

Chore: Model for your child how to hang up a
towel and let them practice. This can be a difficult
chore for some preschoolers. You can make it
easier by having a stepstool available if your towel
rack is a little higher.

Self Help:

This week we are moving our self-help
skills and chores to the bathroom! Yikes!
The first skill is very important during this time of
year (and anytime , really). Teach your child to
wash his hands correctly. Sing a short song like
“Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” or Happy Birthday”
to be sure they wash long enough.
