Letter Of The Week R – Crafts & Activities

letter of the week rLetter of The Week has been one of our most popular series ever here on No Time For Flash Cards and even though I have taken a different approach with my daughter and in my own classroom. I still get requests for these themed letter round-ups.  If you are doing a letter of the week system with your child or class please remember to balance the showcased letter with many whole alphabet activities. Giving a little extra love to one letter is a fun way to introduce it and use novelty to spark interest but we must remember that letters work together. Learning in context and in a memorable way is the best option for young kids. So choose a few fun activities for Letter of The Week but fit them into a week of whole alphabet learning.

Letter Of The Week – Letter S Theme

letter s week letter of the week Does your school follow a letter of the week or maybe a letter of the day curriculum? Are you doing a letter of the week with your child? If you are here are some ideas for your letter of week letter s week. Can I share a few more thoughts about letter of the week? I think letter of the week is a fun way to use a little novelty to focus on one letter, but that’s it. Please only focus a small amount of attention on the single letter and continue to focus on all letters as a whole. Letters work together and children learn about letters and how they work when they use them in meaningful ways. Play is meaningful, art is meaningful, and a fun craft can be a mix of both but focusing too much busy work is not. Choose one or two fun ideas from this post then check out the whole alphabet activities after the S crafts and activities.
