Letter A as in Ant Preschool Theme

Today we talked about the letter A and to go along with the letter A we talked about ants.
We will be going through the alphabet throughout the year following Confessions of a Homeschoolers Letter of the week printables.  Since she has printables for the letter A with ants that what we talked about today.
She has a number of great activities to go with this theme.  You can find her printables here
These are some pictures I took of my son enjoying a few of the activities you can find there.
 Lacing card for a capital A.
 Lacing card for a lower case a.
 Counting cards.
 Ant size sorting
 A is for ant puzzle.
 Upper case and lower case matching.
 Shape matching.
Here is a lower case letter a that my son had a blast painting.
Another cute ant preschool pack we used was from 2 Teaching Mommies.
 These are ant pattern cards.
There are a few tracing pages too.  Since my son is at the beginning of writing I had him trace along the dots with his finger.

We also sang "The A says a.." You can find a little video of my kindergarten singing it when he was younger here to get the hang of the tune.

We also visited Starfall to do the letter A activities there.

My son's favorite activity of the day appeared to be watching this little video of "The Ants Go Marching".  He watched it a dozen times and showed it to his older brother too.
