F is for Fish Preschool Lesson

One of my New Year's resolutions this year is to be more consistent with Goofy's preschool lessons.  She deserves just as much attention as Princess gets when it comes to preschool.  I have started teaching Goofy's lessons while Princess is at preschool.  It makes it a lot easier for Goofy to focus.  I love the one-on-one time.

F is for Fish
Letter of the Day: F
Color of the Day: Pink
Number of the Day: 5
Shape of the Day: Star

Letter Sound Practice: I showed Goofy the letter F.  We practiced saying its name and its sound.  I had her repeat the phrase "F says ffff like fish" three times.

Shape Practice: I gave Goofy a sheet those cheap star stickers.

She was pretty excited about that because she LOVES stickers.  I asked Goofy what shape the stickers were.  She knew "star" right away (we have talked about that shape before many times because Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star is one of her favorite songs).

Next, I gave her a paper with the outline of the letter F on it.  I directed Goofy to create an F inside of the letter F outline on her paper using her stickers.

Bud was pretty interested in the stickers as well.

 She did a fabulous job with this activity.  I was concerned that she would simply stick stars all over the paper rather than create the letter F, but you can see that she did a great job.

Color Craft:  I put Goofy in an apron and gave her a paint brush.

I squirted some paint onto a plate and had her tell me what colors they were (red and white).

I asked her to mix the colors together and see what happened.  She was so excited when they turned pink!

On her paper titled "5 Fingertip Fish" I asked her to put five pink fingerprints on the page.

She followed my directions really well.  We let the paint dry.

Once the fingerprints were all dry, we used a Sharpie marker to turn them into fish.

Food Activity:  Of course, nothing beats Goldfish, known simply as "fish" at our house.  Goofy gobbled them up while the paint dried on her art project.

One happy little learner!  These food-themed preschool lessons have proven to be so much fun.

In case you missed them, here are the other food-themed lessons so far:
