Our letter crafts are some of my favorites. They are the activities that got me interested in working on academics with Rea to begin with. 

Our Z is for Zoo craft is super cute and easy to complete. 

This preschool letter activity will work on identifying the letter Z and the sound it makes.

Teacher Tip

You can skip printing the Z template and cut 3 strips of black construction paper to build a Z out of paper. This would help reinforce writing the letter Z.
