Letter S Fun!

At Wee Disciples we learn about a new letter each week. Before “Sheltering at Home” we had made it to the letter R. This week and next we will have activities each day to focus on the letters of the alphabet we did not yet cover.

Let’s learn about the Letter S today.
1. What does the letter S look like? Show your child the uppercase and lowercase S. Talk about the differences and similarities.
2. What sound does S make? I like to sing a song with the students:
S says /s/ ssssss.
S says /s/ ssssss.
Every letter makes a sound.
S says /s/ sssss.
3. Show your child objects that start with the letter s….snail, shoe, ship, sheep, etc. Can your child think of other words/objects that start with S?
4. Color the S objects on a S coloring page or challenge your child to draw a picture of something that starts with S.
5. Search for items around your house that begin with S.
6. Play a game where everyone takes a turn stating a new S word/object. The game is over when someone repeats an S word/object already stated.
7. Practice tracing and writing the letter S s.
Extension activities….
Practice writing words that start with S.
Make a S Book…each page is an object that starts with S.
Read a book about something that starts with S like a snake book or sheep book.
Try to find the letter s in the newspaper, a magazine, a book or while you are on a walk…I Spy the letter S
Have fun with the letter S today!
