Welcome to L week ? This post is full of fun and engaging preschool activities for the letter L, all tested and tried on my 4-year-old. He is so excited about “doing school” with the older kids that his enthusiasm is contagious.
When my older children were in preschool I began teaching them the alphabet through this letter a week system and it worked so well that I am now on child number four and still happy with the system.
Activities for the Letter L
Activities for the letter L in this post include letter L worksheets, letter L crafts, and letter L books. Before we launch into those, let’s brainstorm a bit about what begins with the letter L.
- Lincoln Logs
- Land (a focus on the days of creation might be fun)
Letter L Worksheets
Preschool is that age where we begin to see learning styles develop. Some kids will enjoy the sit down work that letter L worksheets provide while others are too active for them.
Allow your preschooler to set the stage for learning. Take their lead and if necessary gently guide them in the direction you wish for them to take. This will make learning more fun for both of you!
I have two letter identification sheets for our letter L worksheets. Click on the image to print.
