The Preschool Corner: Letter J

This week I'll be sharing about our preschool fun studying the letter "J" and at the end of the post you will find Mr. Linky so that you can participate too in the fun by sharing what you've been doing during your preschool time.

ABC Book: Jack in the Box

The alphabet book page for the letter "J" was a Jack in the Box. The shapes for the page were really simple - a circle, a small rectangle (box lid), a square, a triangle, and a rectangle for his "neck".

Art Activity: Jellyfish

This jellyfish looks so cool when it is hanging up in a window and the light shines through it!

  1. Cut a circle out of the contact paper (as large as you would like - remember you are folding it in half). I traced a bread plate for the outline.

  2. Spread glitter glue over half (or all!!) of the contact paper.

  3. Fold the circle in half and seal it shut.

  4. Use scotch tape and thin wrapping paper ribbon to make legs/arms for you jellyfish.

Fun Activities

Jack Be Nimble - Make a candlestick out of a toilet paper roll and have fun jumping over it!
Jump rope - Zachary isn't too great at this one, but we had fun trying!


We used jelly beans this week to do a few different activities. We guessed how many were in a jar and then actually counted them together. We sorted them by color and had fun sampling them and trying to guess what the flavor of the jelly beans were (Jelly Bellys ROCK!! - but poporn flavored jelly beans are still yucky to me).

Letter Sheet/Collage

J Worksheet


John 14:6 - "Jesus said, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life."

We've been using the book My ABC Bible Verses by Susan Hunt. It has a quick little devotional and a few questions at the end of the story along with review from previous weeks.


This week we used our Handwriting Without Tears worksheet to practice our letter "J" (the link will take you to the Scribd site where I uploaded the one I made).
