Teaching My Toddler | The Letter J

The letter J is probably one of my favorite letter, and this week was one of my favorite weeks. From hearing my daughter say “J is for Jellyfish” to making a jar of happiness, we had a great time learning about the letter J!


The Letter J Booklist


Jamberry by Bruce Degen-This is one of my all time favorite stories. I have loved reading it to my daughter from the beginning. It is such a cute story about a boy and his bear and their adventures through Berryland.

The Jolly Postman by Allan Ahlberg-This was my first time reading through this story and it was so fun. I love all the letters from different nursery rhyme characters.

Sheep in a Jeep by Nancy E. Shaw-This is a fun little story that is quick and easy to read.

Journey by Aaron Becker-I love the illustrations of this beautiful wordless story. It is always fun and challenging for me to make up a story.

The Jar of Happiness by Ailsa Burrows-I love this sweet story about creating happiness and how to find happiness.

Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Simms Taback-This is a cool story about making something out of nothing.

The Letter J Activities


This week we read the story The Jar of Happiness and then we made our own jar of happiness. I grabbed a mason jar we had in our kitchen and then had my daughter draw some pretty colors all over different sheets of paper. After she was done coloring the papers I cut them into strips and we folded them up and stuck them in the jar. With all the pretty colors how could the jar not bring happiness (I’ll tell you how, when my daughter dropped it on her toe she was not very happy :).
