Hello, and welcome to letter Q week! This was a challenging one no doubt. There are a few tricky letters in the alphabet and this is definitely one of them. I hope that this post can help you with some preschool activity ideas for your classroom. Let’s get started!
I thought FOR SURE the kids would be tired of this activity by now, but there are a few who have adapted it into their daily schedule. Gotta love the learners 😎.
Check it out here.
Continuing on the quail train, I also did an additional quail set-up for the indoor sensory bin.
I used oats as the filler and added little baskets for the nests.
This was a last minute switch up and admittingly…a bit of a cheat 😂. But the kids loved it and it looked beautiful.

Have you ever encountered quicksand? I have not, but am curious to see what it’s all about!
Add equal parts cornstarch and water to a dish and bury bugs/toys in the mixture.
Have kids rescue the items from the “quicksand” and wash them in a bucket of water and soap.
For more of a challenge add more cornstarch, for less of a challenge add more water.
I was amazed at how well the kids were writing with these feathers.
I used Canva.com to find the texture/design of the paper I wanted.
Mix black paint with a little bit of water to thin it out.
Have kids dip a feather in the paint and write on the “scroll”.
Queen– Open ended play mats
Open ended play is a great way for your child to express freedom and creativity without the fear of judgement. They will enhance problem solving skills amongst many other developmental milestones.
In the basket I provided:
- Assortment of buttons
This set comes from my A-Z Bundle in my TpT shop.
The kids just love these scavenger hunts! I try to make the search slightly different each time. Here, I have layered the polaroids in between pieces of fabric. The kids lifted the fabric , looked at the polaroid and matched it on the page.
You can find these in my TpT shop here.
