Teaching My Toddler | The Letter D

This week we learned about the letter D. I think my favorite part of this week was when we were doing our craft activity. It was such a simple activity but my daughter was so proud of her project, it made my heart happy.


The Letter D Booklist


D is for Dinosaurs, Dance, Dots, Dragons, Dogs and Day

Dinosaur Dance! by Sandra Boynton-This book is fun, although you might want to brush up with how to pronounce different dinosaur names before you start reading this book out loud. We used this book with our activity.

Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae- I have loved this book since we added it to our personal library. It’s a great book to do a little dance with too!

Dot Town: Where Are You Blue? by Sonali Fry- I love this story, it’s so cute.

The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds- I love the message with this story. It could be a fun book to do a dot drawing activity with.

The Knight and the Dragon by Tomie dePaola- I love the artistic style of Tomie dePaola. It is so unique and really reminds me of childhood. This is a fun book I hadn’t seen before, or at least in a long time.

Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin- I love this book. It is hilarious. I love the story, I love the pictures, and my daughter loved pointing out all the dragons.

Duck & Goose by Tad Hills-I love the Duck & Goose duo, all the books are cute and the board books are perfect for a younger audience.

Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion-This story is cute. I told my daughter that Harry got so dirty and needed a bath, so the whole time my daughter was really concerned about when the dog was going to get a bath. It made me laugh.

What Do People Do All Day? by Richard Scarry-I just love Richard Scarry, and this cover had a lot of D’s to point out.

The Letter D Printables


This week we have the normal Do-a-Dot sheet and the the letter D card.

The Letter D Activity


For this activity I just cut a simple dinosaur shape and some different colored shapes my daughter could glue on. It was super simple but it was so fun to see how proud my daughter was as she glued each piece on and brought her little dinosaur to life. We read Dinosaur Dance with this little activity.

Next week we are learning all about the letter E!

What books might you add to the list? What activities could you create around the Letter D?
