Happy New Year! We are back in our preschool swing and this week launches our Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet Letter H. This FREE downloadable printable pack has over 30 activities focused on learning the letter “H” and short words that start with the letter “H”. If you’d like to see what we did last year including a table set-up for sensory items and activities for little ones for ages 22-40 months go to the post: Letter H. If this is the first time you’ve been to Happy and Blessed Home, make sure to check out my home page. There you’ll see headlines that will take you straight to a bunch of other resources including even more free printables.
Learn to Read
This series is ideal for parents who have a preschooler who knows their ABCs and who has expressed an interest in reading. We’re on a journey to learn to read short words from either the list of Dolch sight words, or short words that are easily represented with pictures. If you would like to assess your preschooler’s readiness in the area of reading, I have a free chart in my post, Advancing Preschool Reading Behaviors. If you like this post, please PIN it on PINTEREST.
To get ready for each week I do some online research, and review tips from the books I’ve read. I also spend some time on Pinterest looking for things that might be good for our letter activities for the week. I pin everything that looks interesting. My goal is to create a PINTEREST board for each letter of the alphabet. Follow me on Pinterest if you want to get copied on all the resources and ideas that I discover via Pinterest.
To help support the design and hosting of this blog I include affiliate links in my posts. My hope is that you’ll become a fan of Happy and Blessed Home and use these links when you can. Your support helps me produce free printables and helps me stay online.
Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet Letter H
This week I printed out all the materials for our letter “H” study and the first thing my 3& 1/2 year-old wanted to do was play with the cards. He asked if he could line them up to make a brick wall. I thought that was pretty clever since the cards are shaped just like small bricks. The boys also had fun creating houses out of cardboard boxes. I’ve attached pics of some of our activities below.
The entire download for letter H includes:
- 11 Coloring Pages
- Letter H for sensory tracing
- Connect the Hearts
- 20 flashcards with short words that start in “Hh”
- Flashcards with letter “H” sight words
- 5 Do-a-dot Pages
- Letter Hh with Houses
- 5 Tracing Pages
- Horse Craft
- Roll the Dice Game(s)
- House Craft
- Three Letter H games
- Hamburger Lace-Up Card
- Shapes Cutting and Matching
- Cutting Practice
- Align and Count
- Counting and Organizing Hats
The picture below contains many of the printables and crafts included in this letter “H” download.
A heavy emphasis is being placed on reading in our preschool at home efforts this fall. If you’re looking for books for an emergent reader, I recommend:
- Hot Dog (Step-Into-Reading, Step 1)
- Animal Babies (Rookie Ready to Learn: Seasons and Weather)
- May I Please Have a Cookie? (Scholastic Readers, Level 1)
- Cooking With the Cat (The Cat in the Hat: Step Into Reading, Step 1)
In my downloadable FREE printables you’ll find flashcards for 20 words with pictures as well as sight words for your preschooler. For information about what sight words are appropriate for pre-K, kindergarten and up through grade 3, please see my post, sight words.
We start our preschool day with our preschool Morning Board. You can follow the links to access about half of the printables online for FREE. The other half are for subscribers only and as a subscriber you have many of the morning board printables at the bottom of your RSS feed. Click the links for the printables. For a complete list of our morning board printables click here: Morning Board.
To supplement our letter H activities for the week, I also use God’s Little Explorers. Our letter H coincides with week 18 in GLE. In God’s Little Explorer’s the bible story for the week of letter H study is the story of Jesus feeding 5,000 hungry people; from Matthew 14:13-21. My favorite activity (used to emphasize the story) is one where you count goldfish – a great way to illustrate the fish and bread. Stacie has some wonderful ideas.

A photo from our my son’s attempt to build a brick wall using the flashcards and other printables.
The boys decided to make a left-over cardboard box into a house. Even my 23 month-old got in on the house “building”.
