My youngest is obsessed with letters and trying to write anything she sees lately. It’s been so much fun watching her write the names of our family, our pets, and anything else she can think of. She has a journal in the house and in the car with different colored pens and pencils. We have a chalkboard table with chalk readily available as well. I keep our family names hung up on the door so she can always see how to spell them. I feel that having these materials available to her is important to create an atmosphere where learning can take place.
I wrote our family names on two separate sentence strips, and cut one set in order to make a name puzzle. She loved putting the letters in order to spell the names.
Here is some of the names she wrote yesterday.
Another activity she has enjoyed is using the Lite Brite. I write whatever her letter of the week is with a sharpie on a white piece of paper. She has to trace it with the Lite Brite pegs.
