Playdough, sand, or tracing mats!
This product would be useful in a literacy center, in the whole group, small group or as an intervention. There are 3 sets of letters using “correct letter” formation by Graphics By Ramona: upper and lower case together, upper case, and lower case. All sets are in color and black and white.
The color mats can be printed and laminated and put into a literacy center. In a literacy center, you can have the kids use Playdoh® to form the letters or make your own playdough from the link included. HERE
They can also use various materials to make the letters; sand, or other materials, or use a dry erase marker to trace over. Each letter mat also contains 2-3 pictures that begin with the featured letter. Color versions also work well for mini posters because they have the letter and picture clues for reinforcement and identification.
The black lined versions can be reproduced and used to teach correct letter formation and letter identification by having kids trace over the letters with crayon, marker, or pencil. These sets can also be put into a book for each child to keep at home for additional practice.
Another idea would be to give these to parents at Open House, Kindergarten Orientation, or at parent conferences for practice at home.
To use as an intervention, have the child say the letter, trace with their finger, point to the picture and say the sound of each letter. You can target letters the child is having difficulty remembering by mixing them in with known letters for a boost of confidence.
***Note the capital J with and without the “hat”; The black and white version has the j without the hat, not available in color version
