Learning the letter A (Part II)

Here’s Alicia fiddling with the words and pictures of things starting with the letter A. Although she won’t be able to match the words to the pictures anytime soon, I feel that it’s still good to expose her to the words. Anyway, I’ve not made the board on which she’s supposed to stick the words and pictures on to form a collage. Haha. Hopefully it’d be ready soon. 🙂

Another activity we did was to let Alicia do some fingerpainting. I had intended to let each fingerprint form an ant (click here for details), but due to the nature of the paint, the fingerprints weren’t defined at all. I guess that’s the tradeoff for using non-toxic, washable fingerpaints from Crayola.

Anyway, I’ve decided to let this sheet of paper be the cover for her letter A lapbook… Most importantly, Alicia had fun, so it really doesn’t matter if the activity didn’t work out the way I wanted it to.

Songs we sang in conjunction with the teaching of ‘ants’ and the letter A were:

  • phonics song for the letter A (she likes this better – I think it’s because it’s new to her!)


She has this singing toy from her first birthday which happens to have the song about ants!:
