What toddler homeschool curriculum will help my teach letters to my child?

First off, thank you so much for all of the kind comments and emails from all of you about my last post. I didn’t mean to take such a long break, but I am actually glad that I did. I feel so much more organized than I did two weeks ago. I’m still a little overwhelmed, but let’s be honest, when am I not? 🙂

Toddler school has been a bit interesting lately as I’m sure you can imagine. Other than doing these activities for the pictures, my child didn’t really do any of these things except toddler trays and the H sensory bin. Think of the pictures as more of a reference, than a record of what we did. You can get all printables and ideas for H is for hat (and all other letters) from my Toddler Curriculum.

Tray Printables

Size sorting. Sort hats into small, medium, and large columns. (Apparently I misplaced this one for the pictures, but you can see it in the Setting Up Toddler Trays video tutorial.)

Letter Activities

Starfall letter H online book. My child usually loves these. We’ll have to do it this upcoming week for sure.

Books

We didn’t read any hat books, but I really wanted to read Caps for Sale. We never got to the library though. 🙁 Maybe I’ll just buy it because it’s such a classic.

Letter H Craft

Decorate a birthday hat.

Sensory Bin

This was another activity that we actually had time for this week. I used craft sand as the base for the sensory bin. The color looks a weird in the pictures, but in real life it looks much more inviting. There is blue, white, and yellow craft sand and lots of H and h items. See my ABC Sensory bin post for ideas about what to put in the sensory bin.

I love having a plan and I love doing lots of fun things with my child. However, when things have been so busy for me the last few weeks, it was SO nice to just do tot trays and the H sensory bin. And you know what? He still worked on a ton of skills. Yay for a curriculum where I can take things away or add them depending on our situation!
