Letter F Free Printable Minibook Alphabet Series

Today's free printable minibooks is all about the letter F! Each minibook focuses on a letter of the alphabet and since I know a lot of preschoolers work on letters, I am sharing them here!


Just like the others, this minibook is full of about nine coloring-book style pictures that start with the featured letter. You just print them off, cut out the pages, and staple them together! 

Or, even better, let your preschooler or kindergarten kiddo cut out the pages! They get to practice writing their name on the front page, trace the letter on the front page, and see the letter again on each page in the minibook!

You can turn the minibook into printable games too! Just print two sets, paste them on construction paper, cut them out, and play memory or matching games. It just reinforces the sounds that F can make as you remind your children that all the words in this book start with F. 

My preschoolers LOVE "reading" their books after they color them! You could also hang up the pages to display or put them into a binder to make an alphabet collection!

If your child isn't ready to focus on letters and the sounds they make, you can still print the little books off and just use them as coloring books! Everyone likes a free preschool printable, right?!


I will be sharing about one a week, so if you follow along you can get them all free! You can click HERE to see the whole collection! And if you don't want to wait for them to come out weekly, you're welcome to click HERE for instructions on buying the whole set at once.




Happy Educating,

September Preschool Theme Ideas & Resources | Classroom or Homeschool!

This morning I am planning again, so I have my favorite September preschool themes for you and resources to plan for those themes!



If you've been here much, you'll know that preschool themes are my favorite way to organize preschool lessons, so this year, I am sharing monthly sets of preschool theme ideas! I have a collection of 52 preschool themes  that corresponds to my preschool curriculum, but there are far more than 52 possible themes you could learn about every year!  In this post I will share a list of ideas for September themes for preschool that we've enjoyed and that we might do, collections of activities you can use for them and some of my favorite books! These themed collections have everything from crafts to science experiments to printables, and more!

These ideas are perfect for planning a homeschool preschool, daycare schedule, or any other kind of preschool! I hope it helps make your planning super easy and fun...I know I have a ridiculous amount of fun planning out school time...  :D

September Preschool Theme Ideas:

Back-to-School
Buses
Leaves & Trees
Fall/Autumn (First day of Fall in 2018 is September 22nd)
Books & Libraries (International Literacy Day is September 8th)
Family & Grandparents (Grandparents Day is September 9th)
Teddy Bears (Teddy Bear Day is September 9th)
Apples (Johnny Appleseed Day is September 26th)


I like to limit each theme to one week because it is easier to keep kids (and adults!) excited about a theme for a short time. It is perfectly okay, though, to spend more (or less) time on a theme, according to your preschoolers' interests!

And, of course, I've gathered up some fantastic resources for y'all! Planning for July will be easy with these preschool themes and ideas!!
