To start our study of the letter P and a week of fun activities, we read the book If You Give a Pig a Pancake by Laura Numeroff. We talked about how the word pig starts with P. Then I showed my daughter what a P looked like in the book and we searched for other P's. I made sure to pick a book that matched the picture that we would create next for our alphabet art book.

For the alphabet book we are working on, we added P is for Pig. We used dot markers to color in the pink pig. That's the beauty of the dot marker - you can do so much more than just make dots. The alphabet book is part of my Alphabet Centers with Real Pictures.

Letter P Handwriting Practice

To practice writing the letter P, I put our alphabet tracing sheets in a reusable plastic sleeve and gave her a dry erase marker. Now that we are in our routine, she easily works on this and the letter identification task without any help or prompting from me. I just leave it on the table and she knows what to do.

We practiced identifying the letter P in all different fonts with our P page from our Alphabet Centers pack. We pulled out our bingo dot markers and she dabbed the upper and lowercase Ps (though it was kind of tricky to tell the difference between the two.) Dot markers are such an easy and fun tool to have on hand. You can use them like this to find and cover something, make pictures with them, write with them, etc. I've had both of our sets for several years and they are still going strong.

We also got out our sticker chart and added the letter P. Then I gave my daughter a bunch of sheets of old scrapbook letters and she went through them to find the letter P and put it in the right column.

Letter P Fine Motor Practice

For some fine motor practice we got out playdough - P is for playdough. We reviewed the last few letters that we learned and then moved on to the letter P. Some of the letters we rolled playdough into snakes and then formed the letters. For some of them, my daughter just took dots of playdough and smashed them down in the lines to form the letters. Instead of laminating these playdough sheets, I just put them in reusable plastic sleeves.

Letter P STEM Activity

My girls love doing STEM activities and building different things out of different materials we have around the house. In honor of the letter P, I pulled out our Princess STEM Card Challenges. This is a freebie if you want to grab it too. Anything with princesses is a hit with my girls, but it is fun to watch them work through the challenges and and adjust their buildings. 

Letter P + Alphabet Review

We decided to do some extra practice with reviewing the letters using supplies that start with the letter P. First we used, pretzels to make letters. We reviewed the letters that we've covered so far and tried making them with the pretzels before we ate the snack.

Then we worked on puzzles. These Melissa and Doug See and Spell Puzzles are so fun. My older daughter can use them to review words she knows how to spell. Most of the words were too tricky for my preschooler, but she could identify the letters and complete the puzzles on her own. Then she could "read" the words using the picture clues.
