Welcome to H week ? This post is full of fun and engaging preschool activities for the letter H, 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.
So, how do I teach the letter H to preschoolers? Come along on this adventure 🙂
Letter H Activities for Preschool
I would like to share with you our letter H activities for preschool. These include:
- Letter H preschool worksheets
- Letter H books
- Letter H arts and crafts
While we often get stuck on tangible items that begin with the letter H, be sure to include conversations with your preschooler about more abstract nouns such as happy, hot, hungry etc. These letter H activities can be just as fun and can open up the best conversations.
I hope you find this post helpful and a launching pad for your own awesome ideas and lesson plans.
Letter H Preschool Worksheets
Does your preschooler enjoy worksheets? Some like the busy work and others are not ready to sit still. For those who enjoy a quiet time activity check out these letter H preschool worksheets.
The first two worksheets are for letter recognition. Both capital and lowercase letters are used as well as different fonts. The first one can be used with a dot marker and the second has a place to trace the letters if your preschooler is ready.
Here are three more free letter H preschool worksheets for you to download. These worksheets include tracing, number practice, coloring, and name practice.
Letter H Books
My favorite letter H activity is reading books. There is nothing quite like snuggling up together on the couch reading and learning.
We all know the importance of reading to our children. This list contains several beginning reading level books. My preschooler enjoys opening the flaps on “Hen’s Pens” while my favorite in this list is “A Little Prairie House”. My three-year-old is all about “Hand Hand Finger Thumb”.
Hen’s Pens by Phil Roxbee-Cox
Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson
Old Hat New Hat by Stan and Jan Berentain
A Little Prairie House (picture book) by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Hand Hand Finger Thumb by Al Perkins
The Napping House by Audrey Wood
Letter H Arts and Crafts
There is a wide range of fun letter H arts and crafts. So many, in fact, that I didn’t get to half of what I had planned.
H is for hair! Check out our people with pine needle hair! You could do this craft with grass, yarn (though we find yarn difficult to glue) or ribbon.
H is also for heart 🙂 We worked on patterns, cutting, accordian folding, and gluing.
H is for house and happy. I had originally meant to put together a cutting/gluing activity, but when I saw him outside playing with these rocks, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to go with his interest.
