For This Week’s Letter Series Let’s Wallop to Letters W & X!

This week is the second last edition of our “Letter of the week” series. And we will be covering two letters, W & X! If you have just joined in, make sure to check out all the previous letters here

I wanted to keep these last set of letters super simple and as always super fun! So let’s dive in and have a closer look at the shelf:

 

 

Since there are not many words that start with the letter “X”, we started with reviewing the letter “W” poster:

 

 

As always, we also traced the sandpaper letters (print as well as cursive) for both these letters:

 

 

Next was a fun object tray activity! Here we explored different objects starting with the letter W. So I pulled out few objects from around the house – a walrus and a wolf toy, a wallet and a watering can!

 

 

Next up, W is for water! So we had a fun water pouring activity. To make this more interesting, I included a lot of elements in the tray like a funnel, sponge, measuring cups and a bucket!

 

 

We also made the “Letter W and X” using some wooden sticks!

 

 

Next W is for wood! So here we did a fun sorting activity of wood versus plastic!

 

 

After that was our dot marker activity! If you don’t have dot markers you can even make-do with stickers, our normal crayons or even flat marbles!

 



We also did some fun cutting and pasting work – here my son glued strips of paper onto the letters:

 

 

X is for Xylophone! For this one I just printed off a picture of the musical instrument and let my son scribble on it.

  

 

This last activity was my son’s favorite! I set up an “X-ray technician” pretend play. I also printed off few X-rays and stuck them on our wall ☺

 

 

We spoke about which body parts are those X-rays from!

 

 

You can watch this entire shelf work in action on my YouTube channel:

 

 

I hope you have enjoyed following this series with your children. I also hope, through the series you all have found a more hands-on perspective on introducing alphabets to little ones (versus worksheets and rote learning!).

I will see you next with the concluding post of this series with the letters Y & Z! Until then, happy learning and happy parenting!
