Playing a little bit of catch-up over here on our alphabet posts since I’m writing this 31 Days series at the same time! How perfect that the ABC’s of Home Schooling this week happens to be Letter C!

Here’s a quick recap of what we did for Letter C.


A Color Of His Own

Who Took the Cookies From The Cookie Jar?

Clara Caterpillar

Caps for Sale

A House For Hermit Crab



Letter of the Week – Confessions of a Homeschooler

Animal ABC Caterpillars – 1+1+1=1

More great Letter C ideas and printables from Homeschool Creations



Lots of good things start with Letter C! Like castles

Cars – yes, my girl likes to play with cars too!

Cabbage patch doll and cutie

Chocolate – making hot chocolate for daddy!

And, of course, cupcakes :D

At dinner one night, when testing to see what she learned, we asked Keeker what sound “cat” starts with. She said “B”. Stinker! So when we asked “What sound does cucumber start with?” she said “Q!”, all proud of herself. Well, at least phonetically she’s correct :D

We focused mainly on caterpillar and cat for the week, using printables (see above) and our fantastic All About Reading Level Pre-1 lesson. She is really getting the hang of words that rhyme and LOVES all the games we can do!

We made a caterpillar from our blocks (following patterns), did a caterpillar puzzle and made an egg carton caterpillar.

While working on one of her pages, she wanted to paint her own name. No help from mommy, she did a pretty good job for the first time!
