Letter E

 We had a fun week with the Letter E!  Check it out.

Letter E Memory Verse: 
 Even a child is known by his doings. Proverbs 20:11
(I put this inside the file folder)  Download them all here.

A-Z Collage Sheets.  Download here.  
I did both the capital and lowercase file.  
Plus printed the whole alphabet 2 up on a page to conserve. 
We put Elbow Macaroni on our letter E!
I put this in a sheet protector so he could do this over again throughout the week.

I put them in a sheet protector so he can use the same sheet every day of the week!
 Capital/Lowercase Letter Match.  Download the file here.
Print and laminate. :)

Elephant How Many.  I edited this file.

You can do this a few ways... you can just use the number sheet to put the numbers in order, or to clip on the numbered clothes pin, which you can see more about in our Letter B file.  And then I got these new teeny little clothes pins and I had him clip on that many of those mini clothes pins to the number card.  Then using the file I made he put the number card in the square and gave the elephant that many peanuts.

Elephant size sort.  Download the file here.  
Print and laminate.

Letter E Puzzle.  Download it here. (I used the A-Z large floor mats as puzzles) This way it doesn't have the lines already in the file and you can cut it however you want.  I wanted to do atleast 8 pieces.  I might change it up to more or different shapes or something for a later puzzle...we will see!

  Elephant letter match.  Find the download here.
I do not use the wooden chips that she refers to. 
I just laminated them and that works just as well and is cheaper! :) 

  Elephant magnet page.  Find the download here.
We used our homemade pompom magnets for these.
  We used the E that we already had printed, which we put our elbow macaroni on.  I got these wooden blocks from hobby lobby, and had him place them on the letter shape.  Just another way to have fun while learning how to shape the letter E!
After doing this all week, I had him do it the last day with out the paper underneath.
Letter E cutting practice.  He always loves cutting practice! :)
Download the file here.

I made this file myself because I wanted all the letters in one file.
Download my A-Z poke it letter file here.  Take a thumb tack and poke the letter E.  
Practice with forming the letter E.  Make sure to do this while on the carpeted floor. :)

Download the printable letter cards here.

Have fun aiming for the letter E!
(I didn't take a new picture, so pretend the beanbag is by the letter E instead. :)
Read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom every day.  And at the end of the week put the letter E on your coconut tree!  I used the A-Z Collage Sheets.  Download here.  And I put them 4 up on a page so the letter would be small enough for them all to fit on our little coconut tree.  
Color by number page.   Download the file here.
This is great because it shows how he's growing and doing better with staying in the lines.  You can still tell that he is a 4 year old boy by his coloring though. :)

Letter E scavenger hunt. 
Here's what we found....and yes we stretched the boundaries on the "electronic device" usually known as an ipod.
EJ and the Bully (book), eraser, envelope, earrings, elephant, eyes and an ear from mr. potato head, engine(from thomas the train set), Elf the movie, and an egg carton.

Elephant Craft.  Find the download here
Bear made this up all by himself.  We had this large egg crate bottom, and he took the popsicle sticks and was making shapes out of it.  So I asked him if he could make an E with it!  Awesome new activity to add to our letter of the week!

Loved reading this & seeing your ideas! Z just turned 3 in December & I am considering the Confessions of a Homeschooler curriculum for his preschool next year (we're just doing something I threw together for pre-preschool this year), so it was great to see your ideas mixed in with that curriculum. :)
