Ultimate Letter of the Week Resources

Whether you're looking for Letter of the Week ideas or just alphabetized preschool fun, you will have a blast learning with these activities, experiments, songs, books, snacks, and more!

Before we proceed, I have a confession.  I actually think that learning letters, letter sounds, and the alphabet is best done when it is integrated into thematic units that your kiddos are interested in and excited about.  Organzing a year by letter of the week themes works fine, but I think you will have more excited kids who learn better and retain more if you take those abc's and introduce them during thematic units.  For example, teach a unit on ladybugs because your kiddos love them and introduce the letter "l."  Or teach a rock unit if you have little rock-hounds and during that unit introduce the letter "r."  This is the best way to help your kids remember what they're learning and integrate it with other prior knowledge.

On the other hand, I realize there are programs that require letter of the week curriculum, parents who are looking for activities that all start with one letter, and many co-ops and groups that organize their year alphabetically.  And it does work.  I know many children who have learned the alphabet and letter sounds that way.  (I just think the other way is better.)  But since it is helpful and, in many cases, required, I am organizing hundreds of preschool activities by letter!

I truly hope you find this collection helpful.  I have put many, many hours into curating it for you, and I love all the crafts, science projects, experiments, worksheets/printables, songs, challenges, books, and other activities you will find here!  There is everything from language arts to math to science to history...and more!!

I would love to hear from you if you find it helpful or if you have any particular needs!  I am already working on adding to a few of the less-represented letters, and would love to focus on any specific needs you have!  Feel free to email me at, leave a comment, or visit any of my social media pages to the right!

Now...let's get on to the list!!

I sorted the activities by the first letter of one of the most relevant words.  Some activities could easily go for more than one letter, but I had to choose one for sorting purposes.  For example, Apple Bubble Science could have gone under A for "apple" or B for "bubble."  I put it under A (for apple), but you can use it on a B week or even S (for science)!  Feel free to rearrange as much as you like!

And now, I give you...
