I’m a contributing writer for Totally Tots Blog, and since this month’s theme was Princesses, I couldn’t resist creating some of my Letter of the Week activities to go with the Princess Theme!
Bible Verse: “I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14
Numerical Order Puzzle: This is a new item added to my K4 Curriculum! Simply cut out each strip of the puzzle, then arrange in numerical order to complete!
Princess Reading: Do Princesses wear Hiking Boots? by Carmela LaVigna Coyle (See bottom of post for more books by Carmela LaVigna Coyle)
This cute book portrays a young lady asking her mom questions about what it means to be a princess. It’s a rhyming book full of whimsical questions and answers, concluding with the question and answer “Do princesses look at all like me?” and the mom responds “Look inside yourself and see…”
Outside Activity: Go take a hike! Literally ;o)
Math Activity: Princes Counting! Count the princesses on each card, then place the correct number tiles on each card.
Pre-Writing Activity: Help the Princess get to her castle! Laminate these cards and use with dry-erase markers.
P is for Princess Magnet Page: I use a cookie sheet and small round magnets with this game, but you can also use it with Do-A-Dot Markers for more fun!
Princes Size Sorting: Simply cut out each princess card, then sort by size. Discuss which is smallest, largest and medium!
Princess Coloring Page:
Princess Cutting Practice: Cut along the dotted lines to help increase fine-motor skills!
Princess Lacing Card: Print on cardstock, then laminate and cut out. Use a hole punch to create holes 1” apart along edges. Lace using yarn or shoe-string.
Princess Patterns: Cut out pattern pieces and use to complete the pattern that has been started for you!
Roll A Princess: This is a fun game that helps with number recognition as well as counting. Use with either dotted or numbered die. Roll the die, and place the corresponding puzzle piece in place to complete the puzzle!
Snack Time: Have a formal Tea Party! Make sure attendees dress up in their finest, then serve mini-cucumber and cottage cheese sandwiches along with other fun finger foods! Serve pretend tea, or warm tea, or even hot chocolate if tea isn’t your cup ;o)

The Numerical Ordering Puzzles have been included in the K4 Expansion activities, but not the LOTW yet.
I just found another princess (and knight) homeschool pack. go to homeschoolcreations.blogspot.comThose downloads are free too. They would work well together.Michele
Tooooooo funny! I had no idea you were posting princess stuff today too! Not only were we both creating it at the same time without knowing, but we chose the same day to post it! Great minds think alike! Love your stuff! 😉
I recommended your site to a mom who had a question on my blog! I love your printables!
Teachers Ask, Teachers Tell
LOVE this!! Im having a hard time with the link for the downloads…am I still able to print these? Thank you so so much for sharing! I am a early childhood educator turned SAHM/Homeschool mom this year. Your site is really helping me with my 3 year old 🙂 Thank you thank you!
Thank you so much for this! I’m in charge of preschool this week and our theme is princesses and super heroes. I had no idea what to do until I found your post. Thank you so much!
We used some of your fantastic ideas during a unit on Fairy Tales. I have a little princess here that was thrilled when she saw some of the activities. Thanks.
You are so awesome. I can’t tell you how excited I was to see this. I did a search for princess prewriting and was thinking there won’t be anything and it would take a long time…but no I found this…thanks so much. I wrote you an e-mail too. This is so awesome. I do day care. We do zoo phonics stuff too but my oldest girls here are obsessed with princesses. I think I am going to laminate them and re-use them. LOVE them they are going to flip! Thanks again.
