G Is for Goat Craft

G Is for Goat ABC Craft

We’re pretty sure that this adorable letter G craft will float your preschooler’s boat (or is that goat?). Just gather up your supplies and get started on this week’s ABC Craft—ready, set, GOAT!

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • 2 sheets of printer paper
  • Card stock (we used light and dark brown, tan, and sky blue)
  • G Is for Goat Craft templates
  • 2 “googly” eyes
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil and marker
  • Scissors

Instructions for Assembling Your Letter G Craft

  1. Print the G Is for Goat Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter G and the goat’s beard, nose, horns, ear, and feet onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter G and the goat pieces.
  4. Glue the letter G and the goat pieces onto a full sheet of card stock (we used sky blue, but you can use any color you like) to form a goat.
  5. Affix two googly eyes to the top of the G between the goat’s ear and his beard.
  6. Use a marker to draw the goat’s mouth (see sample on the template for placement).

Ambrey,
Thank you! Our goal is to “take the struggle out of reading and spelling” and making things easier for parents and teachers and more fun for children is one way we take the struggle out!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Judith,
We do have plans for a lowercase ABC craft series, but not until after the capital series and as of yet we don’t have a set date for them.

However, we do have some ABC activities that do include lower case letters. We have Feed the Puppy, Tactile Letter Cards, ABC Caterpillar, and ABC Playdough Mats.

When we do release our lowercase craft series, we will be sure to announce through our newsletter, on our blog, and on our Facebook page!

Elizabeth

says:

I love doing these letters with my son and he loves it too….except maybe the sticky glue part,lol!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Elizabeth,
Yes, glue is kind of yucky to get on your hands. Are you using gluesticks? I have found that they are a better option for paper-on-paper gluing. Of course, you could be using gluesticks and your son still end up with the stickies.

We are loving these crafts!!!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Kirsten,
Thank you for letting us know that you are enjoying these!

Amanda

says:

Looks like a fun way to learn letters!

Ashley

says:

This G craft looks fun! Hopefully it will help my daughter remember the hard g sound because she always thinks g makes a j sound.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Ashley,
Yes, that can be tricky. G does say /j/ often and in so many common words that children will sometimes think that /j/ is it’s most common sound. It doesn’t help that the name “gee” begins with the /j/ sound.

Remind your child that G can only say /j/ in front of the letters e, i, or y, and that it “can” say /j/ it doesn’t have to say it in front of those letters. If she sees G in front of any other letter, it always says /g/. If she sees G in front of e, i, or y, it may say /j/ or it may say /g/.

You can practice this for a moment or two daily with the letter tiles. Build a couple of words daily that uses a G. Focus on words with the hard /g/ sound at first, until she starts trying /g/ first and no longer needs to be prompted to not say /j/. Then, if she is beyond All About Reading level 2 Lesson 42 or All About Spelling level 2 Step 20, start adding in an occasional word with G saying it’s soft /j/ sound.

I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any further question.
