I’ve always been a sucker for fairy tales. Once upon a time and they lived happily ever after get me every time!
When you combine my love with fairy tales and my love for books, Beauty and the Beast is the perfect mix! What’s better than a book loving girl who ends up as a princess!
It’s definitely once upon a time and happily ever after at its finest!
I’ve got something fun for your fairy tale-loving, book-loving, and princess-loving preschoolers!
Beauty and the Beast Beginning Sounds
Your fairy tale and princess fans will love practicing their beginning sounds with Belle, Beast, and the rest of their friends.
Print out the puzzle pages. Laminate them for durability, and then cut each puzzle into three individual pieces.
Each puzzle contains three pieces. The main piece features a character from the Beauty and the Beast movie. This piece has the character’s name on it, but the name is missing the initial sound.
Using the character cards (if necessary), have your preschooler identify each character. Say the name aloud. Discuss what sound each name starts with.
Then, using the two smaller puzzle pieces, match the correct uppercase and lowercase letter to complete the beginning sounds puzzle.
If you’d like to make this a self-correcting activity, you can place a small colored dot or small sticker on the back of each piece. Once the puzzle is reassembled, your child can turn over the pieces to check his work.
Another fun idea is to print the character cards twice. Cut the cards apart, glue them to colored paper, and laminate them for durability. Then, lay them out in a grid face down. Use them to play a memory match game.
