We’re having a blast with our online preschool curriculum at HappyandBlessedHome.com. If you’ve been following along, then you know this is letter C week. With just a few simple steps, you can enrich your preschooler’s early childhood education with some fun and engaging preschool activities. Best of all? I’ve included 5 Preschool Worksheets for Preschool Alphabet Letter C for FREE!
Hi, I’m Monica, an Early Childhood Education Certified Teacher. I started out as a homeschool preschool mom, but quickly learned I have a passion for helping other moms and teachers with their preschool at home efforts. Now I teach other moms how to preschool at home through my online preschool program: Visual Montessori.
I spent over five years developing a preschool learning curriculum for my two boys and I used the principles of Montessori, and everything I learned about early childhood education, to create a preschool learning curriculum based upon the 12 Sensitive Periods for children between the ages of birth and six years old as outlined in Montessori.
If you want to enrich your preschooler’s early childhood education with preschool activities that will help them learn the alphabet, you are in the right place!

Learn to Read
If you have a preschooler who knows their ABCs and who has expressed an interest in reading, this series of posts will be perfect for you. 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.
Preschool Activities and Craft
This week we started our letter C study with a super-easy craft. I have a 21-month-old and a 3 1/2-year-old and the craft worked great for both children. I put some Elmer’s glue in a dish for each child and I let the boys dip cotton balls into the glue and attach them to the letter “C” printed on white card stock. The artwork is included in the TeachersPayTeachers downloadable package along with 32 activities based on the letter “C”.

The other craft is a caterpillar. For our caterpillar I used silver glitter glue, google eyes and orange, yellow and green construction paper. You may also notice the lovely paint job my three year old did on the cat “do-a-dot” picture. 🙂
It isn’t a part of our downloadable printables but I thought I’d share one of my boy’s newest discoveries – stackable play doh containers. My 21-one month old had a ball collapsing the containers. The boys got a ton of laughs from stacking the containers and knocking them down over and over again. Click here to purchase the entire Letter C Printable Pack online.
Reading is one of the 12 Sensitive Periods from Montessori
Reading is one of the 12 Sensitive Periods as outlined in Montessori. It’s one of our key focus areas in our at home preschool. 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:
- Pete the Cat: Pete’s Big Lunch (My First I Can Read)
- Pete the Cat: Too Cool for School (My First I Can Read)
- Cooking With the Cat (The Cat in the Hat: Step Into Reading, Step 1)
- Animal Babies (Rookie Ready to Learn: Seasons and Weather)
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar
by Carle – A children’s classic. I created some FREE Very Hungry Caterpillar Printables as part of a guest post on Crafts for Kidlets if you’d like some free “Caterpillar” printables.
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar Lacing Cards (World of Eric Carle)
by Carle – This is not a book, but these are so cute I just had to mention them.
In my downloadable 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.

Teach Character in your Preschool at Home
To supplement our letter C activities for the week, I also use God’s Little Explorers. Our letter C coincides with week 6 in GLE. In God’s Little Explorer’s the bible story for the week of letter C study is the story of Joseph and his coat of many colors; from Genesis chapter 37. My favorite activity (used to emphasize the story) is one where you use a brown paper grocery sack to create a coat of many colors. My boys love to dress up so this activity is perfect for them. Stacie has some wonderful ideas. Click here to learn more about God’s Little Explorers.
A photo from our first craft: my three-year-old followed my directions and glued his cotton balls onto the letter “C” all by himself. My 21 month-old is making a face because he doesn’t like the feeling of glue on his fingers. I cleaned his hands and then helped him with the craft. 😉
The boys also enjoy painting. I’ve tried many different kinds of paints but by far my favorite are Crayola 4ct Washable Fingerpaints. They wash out much more easily than any other paints and do not leave a stain on hands or clothes.
As part of the printable pack I created a chart of 20 cats. I printed the cats double-sided so each cat has a number on its back . I then asked my son to place the cats in their proper numbered place on the chart with numbers 1-20 for tracing. I used Blu-Tack Reusable Adhesive to affix the cats to the numbered page. He did a great job!
This exercise is great for fine motor skills. If you’d like to assess where your preschooler is in their fine motor skills go to my post: Gross and Fine Motor Skills Assessment. (P.S. Never waste money on the grey tack – we threw ours away!)
