Here is a simple letter lesson plan for the letter G. Child care providers and preschool teachers can implement the following activities that support clear learning objectives to create brilliant lesson plans that help young children learn the alphabet.
The students will identify the letter G.
The students make and recognize the G sound.
The students will correctly trace and write upper and lower case Gs.
The students will identify objects that begin with G.
The students will make a handprint giraffe.
The students will listen to books about things that start with G.
The students will learn the song “There’s a Color We all Know”.
Handwriting and Phonetics Activities
Using sturdy poster board, create a letter G poster which shows both the upper and lower case G. Glue pictures of objects cut from magazines that begin with the G sound. Use the poster board to introduce the children to the letter G. Next, demonstrate the G sound and ask the children to make (repeat) the G sound. Ask students if they can think of (objects, names, etc.) that begin with the G.
Encourage children to practice tracing the letter G in both upper and lower case using letter G worksheets. A good example of such a letter G worksheet is available on Education.com website. With either pencils or crayon, let students practice making the letter G in both upper and lower case on blank sheets of paper.
Cognitive Learning: Letter G Object Sorting
For this cognitive learning activity, place toy or real objects which begin with the letter G in a box or other container. Examples include: grapes, goat, globe, ghost, grass, glue, gas, green, giraffe, gloves and grandmother. Along with these items, place objects beginning with various other letters. As you pull each object out, students will sort (recognize) those that begin with a G sound from those that do not.

Preschool Song about Green
Teach the children the song “There’s a Color we All Know” to the tune of “Old MacDonald Had a Farm”.*
There’s a color we all know,
It’s the color that means “Go!”
Oh, grass is green and lettuce is green,
Leaves and spinach and peas are green.
There’s a color we all know,
