Preschool with Kyla - Letter C

It's been a few weeks since I've posted a preschool update.  We worked on the letter C and are moving on to D.  If you want to see what we did with A & B, go HEREHERE and HERE.

Here are a few things we've done with the letter C.  It didn't get the attention that A & B did with everything we've had going on here, but Kyla can recognize it, tell you words that start with C and correctly draw a C.

For some fine motor practice, I got some big thumb tacks from Target and she uses them to poke holes in the letter C.  I let her just do it on the carpet and it worked great.  This is the first time she's done this and she loved it.

Total concentration
When she was done poking the holes we held it up to the light.  She thought it was "so cool"!

Can't go without the magnets!

The next workbox she chose was a caterpillar coloring page.

Kase man decided to join us for this one!  We learned that he loves to color and still to this date...no crayons eaten.  Success!

We've been working hard on tracing the letters and then writing them on her own.  I always write the letter first and she writes her own, using mine as a guide.

3 for 3!  So proud of her!
 While Kyla worked on some tracing practice, Kase actually sat with me and practiced some writing too!

She got really mad about those middle lines and asked me to erase them so she could do it over.  "It's not good Mama."
(I laminate all of these so we can erase and use them again)

She's happy now :)
Lastly, we added our C to our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree.  And read the book.  Over and over and over again.

She had a hard time accepting the fact that the C didn't need to go right next to the B, but I finally convinced her :)

As always, I get all of my printables from Confessions of a Homeschooler.  Off to print some letter D goods!


  1. No crayons eaten is epic! I was just noticing how many teeth marks are in my crayons at school.. I don't get why they're so tasty!

  2. Fun stuff! I've decided to continue slacking until Brielle starts preschool in the fall lol...I give you props, I just can't get motivated to do this stuff! haha
