alphabet-booklets-for-preschool-and-kindergarten-letters-k-to-o

Every few weeks I have been sharing a set of alphabet mini booklets with you. Today I have a brand new set to share for the letters K – O. My friend’s daughter and I have been working through these booklets a few letters at a time and having fun together. The booklets are very simple and fold up into a quarter-sheet size – perfect for smaller hands. 

A Peek Inside

Each of the letter sheets prints off double sided onto 8.5″ x 11″ paper and folds to a quarter-sheet sized booklet. There are a total of 8 mini-pages for each booklet and inside you’ll find the following: 

  • Cover – color in the block letters as you talk about upper and lower case letters and the sound the letter makes
  • Finish the Maze – find your way through the beginning sounds maze
  • Trace the Letters – trace the upper and lower case letters
  • Do-a-Dot upper and lower case – use crayons, paint, stickers, or other art mediums to color the circles
  • Color the Picture Words (2 pages) – color and say the words that being with the booklet letter
  • Words I Know – write down all the words your child knows that begin with the letter

alphabet-mini-booklet-fold-and-cut-exampleOnce printed, cut along the horizontal dotted line. Stack the papers (pages are numbered) and fold in half on the solid line to create a mini booklet. Borderless printing is recommend (an option in most printer settings).

While it’s a little hard to show you every single page from every single booklet, here is an up-close sampling of what each booklet includes.

Insect Nature Study Printables – Learning About Bugs

Insect Nature Study Printables from Homeschool Creations

Spring is almost officially here – and that means lots of beautiful weather to enjoy nature walks and exploring of the various insects we come across. While bugs aren’t always a favorite of mine (I’d much rather be looking at birds, thank you very much), they all still have a purpose. Except for stinkbugs. I don’t know what their purpose is…  

If you have kiddos in your house that are willing to search and discover different bugs and have some learning fun, head out doors and get up-close and personal while using these go-along printables!  

What insects do you see frequently in your area? Are there any that you get excited to see (or is it better to say scream over)?

Additional Learning Ideas and Inspiration

51kzR4mBWIL._SL250_

The inspiration for this pack initially came from Tyndale’s Faith That Sticks insect pack and my past Bird Nature Study Printables pack. The stickers feature nine different insects (several that are focused on in this nature study pack (along with a MANY others) and will be a fun addition to your nature study.

Here are a few things you can do with the stickers. There are six sticker sheets in the set, so plenty to use for a few of the following ideas including:

· Using two sheets to create a matching game. Simply cut 18 3×3 squares of cardstock and put a sticker on each piece. Then have fun matching them up.

· Use the stickers as a guide and have your child sketch their own image of the bird. These stickers have some great colors that are eye-catching!

· Write a story using the stickers. Have your child write their own story picking 2 or 3 of the stickers or have them dictate one to you.

· Make some fun spring cards using the beautiful birds and let your child create a ‘scene’ to put the birds into!

· For older children, put each of the 9 stickers onto a 3×3 cardstock square and let them practice alphabetizing the birds.

· Make popsicle stick puppets with each of the bird stickers.

· Create a simple windsock and use the stickers to decorate. The stickers are light enough that they won’t add extra weight to the windsock.

· Make a fun bracelet with a few of the stickers and wear it on a nature walk. See what birds you find as you walk along!
