Letter V the Vulture Vacuums with Preschoolers

V the Vulture is a fantastic visual aide for teaching your preschooler the letter and sound of V.  In the Amazing Action Alphabet Flip Chart children learn that v says /v/ /v/ /v/ similar to the beginning sound in vacuum!   What better way to teach the sound of V than to use an actual vacuum while making the /v/ sound.  Today I engaged multiple senses when we used scratch and sniff "dirt."  Come join us today for some good, clean fun!

Preschoolers Learn Letter V with V the Vulture

In the Amazing Action Alphabet Activity Book children can color or paint the vulture that is in the shape of the letter V... and it's pushing a vacuum!

A child can pull the side strip through the bottom of the letter v while emphasizing the /v/ sound in van, violin, vase and vine.  This is a great phonemic activity!

Here is a fun way to review the letter V and review middle vowels in beginning words. 

Teach a Vacuum Poem

I’m a little vacuum,
Hear me vroom,
Over the floor and
All across the room.
When I get all revved up,
See me work,
Cleaning up the carpet
And sucking up the dirt.

Life skills...learn to vacuum!

Be sure to bring out your vacuum and practice the /v/ /v/ /v/ sound while vacuuming the floor.  You can easily put little paper v's on the floor to vacuum up.  Use Variety in your teaching! ;)

Here is a fun way to review the vowel sounds and the letter V. 

Here is a great way to teach sentence structure with your students after reviewing the letter V. 

Enhance Learning V with a Scratch and Sniff Activity

You can have your child pretend to vacuum up "dirt" in a scratch and sniff activity.  Simply have them spread glue in various circles then sprinkle "dirt" on top of the glue.

Today our "dirt" was cinnamon, chocolate powder, nutmeg, and pepper.

Today we engaged multiple senses!

Seeing + Hearing + Smelling + Feeling = Learning

Some other letter V activities I like to use are:

Vacuum V using painters tape
Paper towel V using paint and washable markers
Practice cutting skills using V is for vine activity
