Before children can write they can put together puzzles. Constructing capital letters with lines and curves is an effective readiness skill for writing, is a fun activity, and a powerful teaching tool. Children love to play with these pattern pieces, and will find many creative uses. The hours they spend creating will help develop the fine motor and perceptual reasoning skills that are needed for reading and writing.
These activities are great for Kindergarten children struggling with early concepts of print: they emphasize literacy reading and writing readiness skills. Each task is clearly detailed with picture examples and specific pages needed for the activity. Separate files for color or black and white are provided. All borders are ¼ inch ('print to fit' settings will alter the size of cards so try using 'print actual size' settings) all files are pdf, zipped.
Included in this PDF:
* Puzzle-cards with and without associated picture sound cue.
* Pattern and cutting guides for big and little lines and curves. The size of these lines and curves allows for multiple children to work at one table center.
* Teacher’s Guide: directions and pintables for a total of 15 pre-K literacy centers.
