PreK Letter P

Hi! I’m pleased to announce my Letter P activities, this week we will be having fun with Pumpkins! I hope you like it! :)

Letter P Memory Verse:
Praise the Lord; for it is good to sing praises our God. Psalm 147:1
Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Ephesians 6:11

For our verses and accompanying games/stories we use the following books:
ABC Memory Verses & My ABC Bible Verses

Read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and put up the letter P on our Alphabet Tree! You can download my small alphabet letters here.

Song time:
Hide ‘Em in Your Heart Vol 1
Hide ‘Em In Your Heart Songs – Vol 2

Letter P Tracing: I laminate this and use with Expo Dry Erase Markers for pre-writing practice skills.

Pumpkin Pre-Writing Practice: I laminate this and use with Expo Dry Erase Markers for pre-writing practice skills. You can also print this in grayscale and use for more scissor skills practice!

Pumpkin Number Cards: I use these with either mini-clothes pins, colored paper clips, or put a hole in them and have her attach chain links to them. Whatever you use, just have them put on the correct amount for the number on the card. These are also good for putting in numerical order. This download includes pumpkin seeds for counters.

Letter P Scavenger hunt: Fill your box with things that start with the letter p!

Pumpkin Large Floor Numbers: I made these large floor numbers so that we can play a hopscotch type game. I call out a number and she jumps to it! You could also have them put the cards in numerical order, or put them in random order, then hop to them in numerical order.

Pumpkin Pattern Activity: Just use the pieces to practice pre-math pattern skills.

Pp poke page: I found this fun idea on Activity Mom. Instead of tracing, we are going to use a toothpick, or we have these cute Oversized Push Pins, to poke holes through the paper in the shape of the letter. Print on regular paper for easier poking, and do this one on carpet :) Another idea would be to hole punch along the lines of the letter as well. Both work on motor skills!

1-10 Pumpkin graphing chart, print, laminate, then have your child count the pumpkins and color in the correct amount of squares.

Pp Pumpkin Puzzle! Print, laminate, then cut in 6-9 pieces, whatever your child can handle.

Color Matching Pumpkin Puzzles, I printed, laminated, then cut each pumpkin in half in different ways.


Pumpkin Number Cards:
Put these in numerical order or play the ‘missing card’ game. Place all the cards in numerical order, have your child close their eyes then remove a card and see if they can tell you the missing number!

Large Lacing Pumpkin: Laminate and punch holes around outside edge.

Capital and lowercase P matching: Laminate and cut out!

Pp lacing cards: I laminated mine and punched holes, use shoestrings or yarn to lace.

1-10 Counting Pumpkins: Put different numbers in the number box then place that many pumpkins in the pumpkin patch!

Large, Medium, Small Pumpkin Sorting! Laminate pieces then have fun sorting by size!

Dot-A-Dot Letter P Page. We love our Dot-A-Dot markers, so I’ve been looking for more ways to use them! If your child can do it on their own, I’d just give them a blank piece of paper and have them dot the letters!

Pumpkin coloring page: We color this, paint it, or use markers. I found some that fit my 3 year old well, they’re called Pip-Squeaks Washable Markers. They’re shorter and easier for her to use. These pictured are chubby markers, they also make a skinny version. I got mine at Wal-mart.

Letter Collage Worksheets: The download includes letters A-Z as well as a collage idea sheet. We use the collage items as objects to decorate our letters for an alphabet book. We also color, paint, and stamp them. Since we use both upper and lowercase, I have provided both for you! Click here to download the Letter Collages:


Letter P magnet page:
I use this with a cookie sheet and these pom-pom magnets I made from pom-poms and self-sticky magnets from the craft isle in Wal-mart. I also use these magnets from Amazon: Power Magnets, 0.78 inch Diameter, Assorted Colors

$1 pumpkin crafts from JoAnn’s!

Pumpkin Letter Match: This is a fun letter matching activity, that practices both upper and lowercase letters recognition! If you’re looking for more challenge, use the uppercase card with the lowercase letter disks or visa versa! (The download includes upper and lowercase letter disks and activity cards) Click here to see the process of making the letters.

(Please note, the original idea for this game came from Tot School and Carisa’s blog.)

Counting: Mini Clothes Pin and Pumpkin Number Matching! Goal is to put the correct amount of clothespins on the pumpkin based on the number on it. I bought pumpkin pieces from my teaching store and then just wrote numbers on with a sharpie. (I went from 1-20, then also made a set of pumpkins with dots on them so they could match the dots to the number as a variation). Mini clothespins were found at Wal-mart in the craft section.

Family Fun Night: Take a trip to a pumpkin patch, and have pepperoni pizza for dinner!

  17. JENNIFER: I do vowels first then consonants. I don’t do a set order for consonants because I had some that were seasonal for example, we did P for pumpkin in the fall, and V for valentines in Feb and K for kite & W for watermelon when it’s warm etc.

  18. Erica,Only if you get a free moment and if you want to, I was wondering if you could make a scavenger hunt card for letters p and x as well. Thanks so much!Mindy
