A is for Apple

Here are some of our favorite Letter A (Apple) activities...
-  if you have some of your own, please comment or email me and I will add them to the post.  

Scissor skills - My son needs a lot of work with his fine motor skills so this apple cutting page from Preschool Palace was great for him.  The child cuts on the dotted line to the apples.  We didn't quite make it to the apples but he still got some great practice. 

Letter Tracing- With this Aa Letter tracing page, the child uses their finger to trace the capital and lower case letters.  

A is for Apple- I had my son use his glue stick and glue the little green and red apples (page 61) inside the large A.  This was great practice staying inside the lines for him since he isn't a big on coloring.  

Capital/Lowercase Match- This Aa apple tree capital/lowercase match sheet was great! I glued the first two letters and then my son took it away.  

Colors- This activity (pg 60) didn't really have anything to do with the letter A.  I wrote the words RED in red marker on one apple and GREEN in green marker on the other apple.  Then I gave my son a sheet of red construction paper and a sheet of green construction paper.  I showed him how to tear the paper and then glue it onto the appropriate color apple.  This was also a good one for staying in the lines. 

Size sorting- Also, not really having to do with the Letter A.  I thought that these size sequencing cards would be a no brainer... just put them in order!  My son just stared at me like, um what??  After bringing out the turtle puzzle and matching the large apple under the large turtle and so on, he got it.  We did this activity everyday during the A week!

A is for airplane- I thought I would throw in another A word for the fun of it.  I found this airplane puzzle in the $2.50 section at Target.  It's not as easy as it looks people!
