Letter of the Week is one of the most common ways to homeschool preschool. Simply choose a letter and then build your activities around it.
There are two main views on Letter of the Week. One is to start with A and continue through the alphabet in order. The other is to work through the letters in a pattern that teaches pre-reading skills. Reading the Alphabet is an example of the second method.
The idea behind Letter of the Week is to theme everything around that letter. Here are a few of the categories you could include:
- Writing practice
- Letter sounds
- Bible Lessons
- Animals/Nature Study
You can find links for all of these activities in my list of Free Alphabet Resources for Preschoolers.
Since there are only 26 letters, you will probably have a few weeks left until the end of the school year. You can use them to review the letters, or to do covers numbers 1-10. Another option is to slip in a few themed weeks throughout the year around holidays.
