Here are the fun things we did with Q is for Quilt:
Introduction to Q’s Sound with my sound tub. In it, I have a queen, quarter, piece of quartz, question mark, & a quilt. I pick up each object and say, “This is a /kw/, /kw/, queen,” emphasizing the Q sound at the beginning. Then, I have him do the same thing with each object.
Q Poke Page: he still loves doing this
Gluing Q pictures around the letter Q
Upper Case/Lower Case Q Matching: I made this one and was amazed at how well he did with it! You can download it here.
By far, NJoy’s most favorite activity of the week was this Quilt Sticker Book I made for him. He loves to “read” the book to whomever will listen. He even put it on the bookshelf in his room, along with all the other books the boys have. 🙂 You can download a copy here.
Quilt Color By Number: NJoy doesn’t really like to color, but he does seem to enjoy the challenge of a color by number. I still have to sit right beside him and guide him, but he likes it!
Finding the matching quilt material
We also did a few other Q activities from Erica’s Q is for Quilt unit, but I’m not going to post the pictures as Sir NJoy was in his finest pair of undies. 🙂 Just one of the perks of homeschooling…
I did, however, catch MBug dropping in the “quarters”. She’s literally addicted to this activity! NJoy did the same thing, but with quarters (fake ones).
Using a Q-tip to glue quilt scraps on the letter Q
At the end of the week, we hung our quilt above the letter Q on NJoy’s Picture Word Wall. To make this quilt, I simply colored Erica’s Q coloring page, laminated it, and hung it up. No need to reinvent the wheel when it’s already been done for you! 🙂

I LOVE all your ideas! I’m so glad I stumbled across your website. I will be using your great ideas next week for my class. Thanks!
Wonderful! So glad that someone else can use these ideas. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by to comment.
Hello! The link to the uppercase/lowercase quilt match is not working on 4shared. Is there any other way I could get the printable? I think it would be perfect for my daughter to do next week for the letter Q. Thank you for sharing your work with us!
So sorry I’m just seeing this comment. I’m sure you’re past the letter Qq by now. 🙁
Thank you so much for sharing all of your wonderful ideas. I think my little ones would love to do the Qq quilt activity too. Is there a way to fix the printable?
