Chalk Art: Flower Power Lowercase Letter Match

Chalk Art Flower Power

Welcome to another Playful Preschool Wednesday post, where a group of educators and mothers get together and share some free hands on play learning for you to try with your preschool aged kids. Last week I shared some Tips For Story Time at the Library and this week I am sharing some Flower power with some preschool alphabet activities

Once again the weather was very inviting. So we have been spending most of our time outdoors learning. This week our letter of the week is Bb and I figured it would be a great idea to help my preschooler with the lowercase b/d situation that stumps them so often.

Materials:

Setup:

  1. Draw a circle and pedals around the circle
  2. Inside the middle circle wrote the lower case alphabet
  3. Inside the pedals write the matching letter and a few other letters.

Because we were working with the letter b, I wrote the lowercase b in the middle circle and the lowercase letters b and d in the pedals. You can do this also with the letters M and W.

Directions:
Call out the letter in the circle and have the child place a ladybug bottle cap on the matching letter pedals.

After all the matching was done we took the time to trace over the letters in the middle and their matches.
