From the Archives: The Letter D

Every Monday I am reaching back into the archives to share the learning activities that we did last year when Little S was home with me.  Each week, we worked our way through the alphabet and we read stories, did crafts, and played games that helped reinforce the letter we were learning that week.  If you have any additional activities to add to the list, please leave us a comment!

Letter D


  1.  Color the Letter D.
  2. Trace the Letter D.
  3. Take a field trip to Krispy Kreme to see how donuts are made there.  You can watch through the window and pick up a treat if you wish afterwards.


  1.  Read How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food by Jane Yolen
  2.   Make the Shape-a-Saurus Craft


  1.  Read Danny and the Dinosaur by Syd Hoff or go to the library and pick out a different dinosaur book.
  2. Make salt dough fossils.
  3. While waiting for salt dough to bake, have the kids color some dinosaur pages.


  1. Read Make Way For Ducklings by Robert McCloskey.
  2. Make the paper plate duck craft.


  1. Write the days of the week.
  2. Make a calendar for the week.  Color it, decorate it with stickers, etc.  You can also print one from the computer (just do a search for weekly calendar).  As each day passes next week, cross it off.
