We are planning to homeschool my two dd's. The oldest is 4 1/2 so I thought I would start to get a little more organized this year. I was thinking of doing a letter a week where we would do different projects everyday based on that letter and practice saying the letter sound and words starting with that letter, etc.<br><br>
Today was the first day. We drew Aa's with glitter glue, made Aa pretzels, and drew angels and apples, etc. I was wondering if anyone else has done this and had any great ideas for projects.<br><br>
Also, someone at the park told me there was a book that had was based on this letter a week idea but she didn't know the name or author - anyone ever heard of it?<br><br>
Also, any other ideas or books of ideas for this sort of pre-K age would be appreciated.

Our library has books based on letters. They are "My first "A" Sound book" and so on. My kids like them. You sound way more organized than I am, LOL!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Another resource with letter of the week ideas is "Slow and steady get me ready" by June Oberlander. It has activies from age 0-5 but the 4 year old ones focus on the ABCs.
