ABC Fun E is for Earth - Crafts, Phonics & Writing Activities for Preschool


It's been awhile since I have shared some of our ABC Book fun! I have promised myself that I would get back to doing that so that my Preschool Diva & I can finish her Alphabet Book before she starts Kindergarten ;)

Since this week has been all about celebrating our amazing planet,
it seemed fitting to add Ee is for Earth to our Alphabet Book.  



E is for Earth Alphabet Book Craft

I made large block letter E and e onto cardstock
and the Littlest Diva set out to make them look like the earth.

We used watercolor paints for this activity (that's what she chose)
but there are lots of fun possibilities with this activity.
You can use markers, crayons, dot markers, tissue paper or even
make a mosaic with construction paper or play dough.


She was so excited to show off her finished painting!


To complete our masterpiece for the ABC book,
we cut out both letters and glued them onto black construction paper
(she said it looked like the night sky)
and then used a white crayon to add some stars.


The finished product was adorable &
it makes a wonderful addition to our Alphabet book!


(short vowel) Letter e Scavenger Hunt

We spent some time practicing the (short vowel) letter e sound.
Of course, I always have to make things fun so I sent
the Littlest Diva off on a scavenger hunt to find as many
items as she could in 5 minutes that started with the e sound.

She had a great time & it was a fun way to review with her.


Letter Ee Handwriting Practice
I put a little bit of blue and green paint into a ziploc baggie
and let the Littlest Diva practice finger writing both
uppercase and lowercase letter Ee. 


Thanks for joining us for our Preschool Alphabet Fun!

  10. Pug puppies and French Bulldogs make wonderful family pets. They are easygoing and get along well with children and the other pets of the household. Above all, they are hardy and an ideal pet, especially for first-time owners. Selecting a new pug puppy or French Bulldog is a daunting task. You want one that is healthy but also comes with a pleasant personality and is adaptable to your lifestyle.
