Homeschool preschool letter Q activities allow for curiosity to be quenched through daily lessons. Forget about the worksheets and learn through pictures, nature, writing and more.
Homeschool Preschool Handwriting Activity
Starting out with the handwriting activity is a good way to introduce the letter of the week. Then, add it to the learning board. The learning board is a good focus point each week to use throughout the entire letter of the week process. It is interchangeable, functional, and helps with the review process. Each day builds on the one before, and 5 minutes of review is a good habit to start. This will serve each homeschooler and homeschool mom well in the future.

My letter of the week handwriting activity sheet is easy, and focus on trying to do their best work. I don’t fill the pages with busy work, but focus on the letter they are learning. Another good reason to start with the handwriting activity is the focus on the flower of the week. All of the other studies for the week are based on identifying the flower of the week, which also relates to the letter of the week.
Preschool Letter Q Picture Study
Picture study this week in homeschool preschool focuses on a picture of the flower which is Queen Anne’s Lace. This is a beautiful flower that is found in many places. Queen Anne’s Lace was originally found in Europe, but now is found in many parts of the US> It is considered to be an invasive species, but does go well with a garden enthusiasts’ wildflower collection.
Look through magazines and other publications to find some good pictures of the flower this week. These can be placed in any binder, cut out and pasted onto the letter of the week poster, or added to the handwriting sheet. Make sure to discuss and allow the preschooler to describe the picture to you.
Allow them to tell you what they see, and give plenty of time for questions.
Nature Study for Preschoolers
Next, begin the homeschool preschool day with a nature study. Find any park near your home and visit it to see if there are any Queen Anne’s lace in the wildflowers. Don’t pull them, but sit and observe them. Allow the preschooler to take in all of the nature around her that she sees.
When we do nature studies our nature notebooks and pencils are always with us. Introduce the flower and sketch with your preschooler. See who can get as many of the details of this flower in their drawing. The color may be hard because it is white, but sketching it implements the picture in their head.
Finally, take a walk through the woods and see if they can point out any of the Queen Anne’s Lace without problems.
Letter of the Week Sound
Teaching the letter of the week sound really helped my last preschooler. He picked up on reading very quickly. I’m convinced this happened because we spent so much time sounding out the letters of the week. He was my last preschooler so I had tried many different ways to teach preschool. Finally, with my last child I implemented strategies that I had learned from all of the others’ and worked on sound recognition.
Sounding out the letter of the week evolved into sounding out words. For my last preschooler this is what led hime to read more quickly than his siblings.
