Letter G Activities, Letter G Crafts & More Ideas for Little Letter Learners!

Letter G Activities, Letter G Printables, Letter G Crafts and MORE for Little Letter Learners

Well hello Letter G! You've made it to the truly Great and Gorgeous Letter G. Hopefully your beginning reader is on the right path, and really learning the letters of the alphabet with excitement and fun.

Below are some fun ideas for teaching the Letter G to your student(s). Although you WILL find printables for the letter G (free from me, too!), remember these two very important things:

1- Worksheets and printables should be for review and practice - not so much for introducing letters and sounds.

2- Teaching and introducing concepts (like letters and their sounds) should be through lots of activity. Get that whole body involved for better learning. (Think: kinesthetic/ body movement, fine motor (art, fingers), hearing (songs, rhymes), seeing, feeling, smelling (going outside, feeling something on the skin, smelling a smell, tasting a food).

THIS is the way to teach so kids can really understand letters and concepts.

Okay, enough! The Letter G awaits.

Letter G preschool songs

Singing it out loud is a great way to help kids remember the letters of the alphabet. And there are so many cute little songs to choose from!

(Aside from, of course, the alphabet song). 

There are even some fun songs for the Letter G. Here's a cute shareable one I found for you on YouTube from the makers of ABCmouse.com.

And remember, you can easily make up your own Letter G songs with tunes you already know. The kids aren't picky! They just love a fun song.

Letter G gross motor activities

To really get the whole body moving, consider some gross motor - specific activites to teach Letter G. Here's a list of gross motor Letter G ideas to try:

  • Tape sheets of paper with a one letter written on each paper. Put a "G" on several sheets and have your child jump from letter G to letter G to get from one side of the room to the other.
  • Walk like a Gorilla around the classroom.
  • Go walk in the Grass in your bare feet!
  • Blow Giant bubbles to teach the soft letter G.
  • Work on some Gardening outside.
  • Take out the Garbage (win for you!)
  • Play hopscotch, jumping only on spots that have written in chalk the letter G.
  • Play a game with Goals, like soccer or hockey.
