Welcome to the 18th installment of our Letter of the Week series. We are quickly nearing the end of the alphabet, but I hope you are enjoying this series as much as I am. I just wish I had time to do all the activities and great ideas I find. Today, I’m sharing some resources to help you teach the letter “R” to your kiddos today. This is fun letter with so any different themes to use, but using these fun printables, activities, crafts, recipes and books can make a tremendous difference in helping kids remember letters and sounds.
Some fun themes you might use to teach the Letter R are rainforest, rain, rainbows, robots, racoons, red (the color) and reindeer just to name a few. Feel free to pick and choose what works for you and your child’s learning style!
