We always start by saying the letter out loud. Teaching her the phonetic sound of the letter. Next is the line tracing and letter tracing

(both  upper case and lower case letter E )

Ee is for Elephant magnet page can be downloaded for free via Confession of a homeschooler. Please note that this is for personal use only. You can use Power Magnets and a baking or cookie sheet to do this activity.

Or you can always hit the dollar store ( or any crafts store) and buy some glass beads.


We did a number sequences activity.. I shuffled all the numbers and asked her to put the numbers in right order. This can also be downloaded for free at Confessions of a homeschooler link I mentioned above,


I printed out a simple Ee in block form  and did a peel and stick activity , which is awesome for fine motor skills .
  
We read words that starts with the letter E. I made her repeat the words after me.


A do a dot activity. Do a dot is also useful when it comes to teaching our young ones with alphabets . It gives them awareness of the letter form thus helps in their pre writing skills.


On our craft day, we made elephant crafts. This involves coloring , pasting and cutting, Which all helps their creativity and fine motor skills. You can use safety scissors if your lil ones have not mastered the cutting skills. Let them design and color the pages in any way they like.






You can download these free elephant craft template here DLTK KIDS . They are associated with first school website too, I just love all of their resources! They are free and very useful for momma's who loves to teach or just do crafts with their kids.

We also use abcmouse.com and starfall.com  to supplement with her learning. 

Just always remember to keep everything fun for you and your young ones at home. They learn through play, and you may think that they just don't get it..don't stop. They are learning.
