This is a fun project I made for my 1st grade Korean students who were just learning the alphabet. The idea is that they write the letter many times very small to outline a larger letter. My class had a lot of fun (and felt like they had worked hard, too!).
Included in this download are:
- 26 sheets. Each sheet has a circle containing a very light outline of a letter of the alphabet. I promise they are there, even if the screenshots make it look blank!
Other materials you need:
- A fine-tip black pen for each student.
- At least 2 colors of crayons for each student.
- A pair of scissors for each student.
1. Definitely make an example first, especially if your kids don't speak English.
2. Give each student a paper and a black pen. MAKE SURE THEY CAN SEE THE FAINT OUTLINE. I had a couple instances where the kid thought they were just supposed to wing it. The outline is very light, but once you show them they should have no problem. After they're finished, you can't see the outline at all!
3. Show the students how to write tiny letters around their outline.
4. When they are finished writing, they can color it. I had my students just pick two colors to save time, but a couple wanted to make 'rainbow' letters as well.
5. When they are finished coloring, cut them out!
These letters look so cute when they are all finished and lined up! I even laminated them before displaying them on top of the board, and the students couldn't have been more proud!
Thanks for downloading!
