Teaching Tuesday--modeling letters

I was up late this weekend, looking for preschool concepts to work with Big Boy.  I was outlining some things I'd like to practice with him this week, how to go about teaching letters, etc.  As I was thinking through hands-on activities I came up with the following ideas for learning letters:

  • Write out the letter on a piece of paper and have child glue beans, peas, etc over the top of the letter.
  • Have child mold play-doh around the letter on paper.
  • Have child mold a pipe cleaner around the letter on paper.
  • Have child trace out the letter in a paper plate of pudding.
  • Have child glue pom poms over the top of the letter on paper.
  • Have child lace cards in the shape of letters.

These are some fantastic ideas. I'll have to use them with my 3 and 4 year olds. Thanks.

If you're interested, we have a Mr. Linky up on our website, Happy To Be At Home, to share homeschooling ideas. This post would be a perfect fit!
