Welcome to the tenth installment of our Letter of the Week series. Today I’m sharing resources to help you teach the letter “J” to your kiddos. Remembering and making letters stick can be difficult for little ones, so these fun printables, activities, crafts, recipes and books can make a world of difference.
Some fun themes you might use to teach the Letter J are Jelly/Jam, Jellyfish, Jell0, Jungle, Johnny Appleseed, Jets and Jumping just to name a few. Feel free to pick and choose what works for you and your child’s learning style!
