Meet the Letter Q

After seeing how to make both the uppercase and lowercase Q, we jump into a story about a queen, a quill and a quilt. How can those words ever fit together? Well, if you have a queen named Quincy who loves quilts, it turns out to be easy. Queen Quincy wants to make her own quilt. What does she need to make it? A quill! She goes on a quest to find her friend Quinton, the porcupine. When she finally finds him, she gives him a quarter for one of his quills. Now she can make a quilt for herself AND one for Quintin. There are Q-words galore in this short story, enough to help children build a link between this letter and its very special, but sometimes hard to remember, sound.

Meet the Letter Q Here’s a story about the letter Q. You make uppercase Q like this: Start with a circle. Then make a little line here. You make lowercase q like this:  Make a circle, then a line down, and then a little line that goes up. Some things which start with Q are . . . Quill Queen Quilt Okay, now here’s our story. A long, long time ago, there was a queen named Quincy. She loved quilts, but she didn’t really want to buy a quilt. She wanted to make one ’cuz she was CREATIVE. So she went on a looong quest to go see Quintin, her friend the porcupine. If she could borrow one of his quills, she could use it as a needle to make her quilt! When she finally got to his house, he wasn’t there! Queen Quincy thought and thought. If Quintin was quietly hiding nearby, she could possibly talk him into giving her a quill. So, the queen yelled out, “Quintin, I have a quarter for you if you give me one quill!” Quintin crept out of his hiding place. He decided he’d like that quarter for a quill ’cuz he may want to buy something. Queen Quincy sewed and sewed and sewed with the quill to make a beautiful quilt, but she hadn’t forgotten what Quintin gave to her. Even though she got her queenly quilt, she made Quintin his own queenly cozy quilt. So he can quietly snuggle in his own quilt. So warm and cozy! The End. Q! What Q words did you find in that story?
