Toddler Ideas Tuesday: January 13, 2015

Welcome back to Toddler Idea Tuesdays! I hope you will join with me again in sharing the fun activities, crafts, and lessons that you are doing with your young children. 

We have been working on some letter review. This is an activity I did with the older girls a few years go when we were doing Letter of the Week. I love making these tactile letters. This time we used the letter papers I printed out from ABC Twiggles, a fun preschool site I reviewed this past summer as a part of my Back to School/5 Year Blogiversary Celebration. In the past, I have just printed out letter templates to do this activity.

I try to find objects that start with the letter the children are making. So, for A, they glued on apple seeds and for B they glued on beans. I hold the glue and they hold my hand while we form the letter out of glue in between the lines of the letter. Then they glue on the little objects. Not only do they learn the shape of the letter, they are developing fine motor control.

We didn't quite have enough apple seeds for each of the children to do the upper case and lower case A's.

Now onto:
