Keekers has been working on learning the letter F over the last two weeks. I am loving spreading one letter over two weeks as it’s allowing us more fun time to get into some things, and with letter F, I had such a hard time picking just a couple of themes!
We landed on flowers, frogs and fish (a must in our home!), and kept our worksheets and crafts circulating around those.
The theme packs came from my favourite sites for tot printables, here are the links where you can get them!
Letter F worksheets from education.com
The books I put on hold from our library and picked up while the kids were at swimming lessons. It was hard to find some of the ones I wanted, but it was a fairly successful haul! I didn’t stick strictly to theme, just grabbed a lot of other books that were good exposure to letter F also.
I THINK I may take out the most books of all our homeschool group families. LOL

At the end of the week, we hit up the zoo and embarked on a Letter F scavenger hunt! The idea was to find as many animals as we could that began with the letter F. We expanded it to find as many THINGS as we could that began with the letter F. It was quite a success!
waterFall (bit of a stretch :D)
FLAMINGO! This pair was strutting around like they owned the place. So beautiful and graceful!
Ferret – off display :0(
arctic Fox – so cute mom and baby snuggled up together!
FireFox! One of our faves (aka red panda)
Frilled lizard – but not frilling today. I guess we weren’t threatening enough.
