Alot of letter identification has been going on over here and I wanted to do something that would incorporate the different letter activities we have been working on. This activity would recognize the actual letter, the letter sound and work on fine motor skills.
Here's what we we used:
Stamps and ink pad
On each end of the popsicle sticks I stamped on a picture of things like a cat, frog, hat, ball, etc. With permanent marker I wrote 3 different letters on the popsicle sticks in both upper case and lower case letters. My hope in doing it this was to make my daughter have to think more about which letter was correct. I asked my daughter to tell me what the stamped picture was and then asked her the sound it makes. Once she identified both she put the clothespin on the correct letter which worked on her fine motor skills.
choosing letter and sound for Sun
choosing letter and sound for Clouds
If you would like to try this and do not have stamps you could use stickers, print pictures or cut out pictures from learning books and glue them to the popsicle sticks.
