Letter "Qq" Recognition Craft Projects & Activities




We spend one week reinforcing each letter with crafts and activities.
Schedule of Activities


"Qq" is for Queen


Paint childs four fingers gold for the crown and the palm flesh color for the queen's face (no thumb). When dry add jewels to the crown and draw a face. We glued ours to a craft stick to make a puppet.


Quill Pens


Explain to children that a long time ago, people didn't write with pencils and pens like they do today. They used something called a quill. A quill is a feather that was sharpened at the end and then dipped in ink. Set out several long, clean craft feathers for children to exeriment with, dipping them in paint and writing designs on paper. Encourage thm to try writing their names and different letters of the alphabet.


Class Quilt


Give each child a square of paper to decorate. Tape together to make this class quilt


Alphabet Collage Books

During the school year we will make a page for every letter, number, shape, and color we are learning. Each week children will put their new collage pages into a binder kept at home. Parents are encouraged to use the binder to review the pages with their child regularly. At the end of the year the children will have a nice memento of their preschool year as well a a complete alphabet, number, color, and shape book.
"Q" is for Question Mark Collage

Instructions:

Print the Letter Page:

Group Time Activity


Print different capital and lowercase letters of the alphaet on index cards. Make several more of the letters Q and q. Hold up the letters and ask children to quack if they see the letter Q or q. You can also say words that begin with q, and have children quack if they hear the qua sound.
