Letter Q

Now that you’re done with the letter P, we’ll be tackling the letter Q. There are so many fun things to do with this letter. First and foremost, make sure you put up the letter Q in your child’s learning space. The more they see it, the more familiar it gets. Another tip is to make sure you talk about the letter with your child, describe it, its shape, its sound, in what words you see it. This will help them discover its key features in a constructive way. You can then confirm their speculations through watching this Kids Academy Letter Q Video together. Last but not least, it is very helpful to incorporate some fun to the learning process. In this article, we’ll recommend 5 activities you can provide your child with to help them learn the letter Q.

    q2
  • Q is for Queen: For this activity, you’ll need a big Letter Q made of construction paper, a cutout of a queen’s crown, and some craft gems. Have your child decorate the crown with the gems and glue the crown onto the letter Q.
  • Q-tip Painting: Q-tips are a versatile tool for kids to explore, and they make a great addition to the letter Q lesson. They can be used in many different ways, one idea can be coloring a printout of the letter Q with a Q-tip dipped in paint. Another idea can be coloring in a printout a Quail image to further emphasize the letter Q in context. To make it more interesting, you can bundle together a few Q-tips to make several dots at once.
  • Quilting: To help your child learn the lowercase form of the letter Q, print out a bubble lowercase q on a piece of paper, and cut small fabric squares from old clothes. Have your child quilt the letter by gluing the fabric squares on the paper. Having a pretty end result is an additional perk to the activity!
