As I was preparing for our new school adventure, I discovered that I needed a few items to make my life a little easier. Because I wanted the items to fit Aladdin’s needs and line up with the Preparatory curriculum, I made a few documents I thought I would share with my readers.
The first item we needed was a letter book. We are focusing on the uppercase letters, so I made him a letter book by printing out my document and binding it with my comb binder. Awhile ago, I purchased a set of Alphabet Picture Stickers. We will be putting them in our book as we go along. Access the letter book here: Letter book.
The second item we needed was a number book. I created the book the same way as I did the letter book. I just purchased a few dinosaur and car/truck stickers for him to use with his number book. Access the number book here: Number Book.
We learn a new nursery rhyme every week so I made some nursery rhyme cards to hang up. These nursery rhymes roughly correlate with the rhymes covered in the Preparatory curriculum. I believe I exchanged 8 of the 26 rhymes with ones that we are more familiar with. I printed these out and laminated them. I made two copies – one to hang on the fridge as a reminder to me to go over them and one for Aladdin to hold on to. Access the nursery rhyme cards here: Nursery Rhymes.
I broke out the felt board to use during our learning time, as well. I needed felt shapes, letters, and numbers. For the letters and numbers, I printed an extra copy of the letter/number book and used those as a template. I cut them out, traced them onto felt, and then cut out the felt. For the shapes, I made a pdf template and did the same thing. Access the felt shape template here: Felt Shape Template.
I hope you can find a use for these items! They are all free and will be posted on my Printables page.
