This is an excellent resource for students of all abilities to make UPPERCASE LETTERS using their bodies. Research supports the use of movement in the classroom and the use of multiple sensory input (such as movement) to learn letters. There are 26 cards in all, with 4 cards on each page.
Students look at the visual and use their body to form letters. If you use a handwriting program you can even have students form the letters by skywriting before forming with their body. You can use this for full class, small groups, centers, therapy and more! Student’s can spell their names, spelling words, words their way words, sight words, red words and more! You could call out letters and have students make.
Use this as brain breaks to spell a word. Have students hold each pose for 10 – 20 seconds safely.
