Either I collect items that begin with our letter of the week or I have the kids walk around the play area and they help me find items. These are several D items we found. D for drum, dog (four of them since our NOTW is 4), doughnut, door, ...
We covered a letter D in "dots" from the 3-hole punch.
Nehemiah struggled with the difference between the lowercase d and the lowercase b in our letter hunt worksheet. There's an awesome WordWorld episode called Bed Bugs and the bugs sing a song: "A line then a circle is the letter b, a circle then a line is the letter d..."

A few fun projects..coloring dog (from WordWorld) & dolphins, cutting out the letter Dd, made a D mini-book, and a duck.
