I picked up a set of alphabet flashcards at a garage sale for a quarter a few years ago. I’ve had them in the closet, so I thought this activity would be perfect for them. If you don’t have sandpaper or other tactile letter cards yet, this is an easy way to make some.
A set of alphabet flashcards or
Index cards with the alphabet printed on them
1) Make a set of alphabet letters on index cards (or use an old set of flashcards).
2. Trace the letters with the glue gun. Allow to dry and harden. I didn’t try, but I’m sure you could use school glue. It will just take a lot longer to dry!
3. Place the letters of the name you’re spelling under a sheet of paper. Rub with an unwrapped crayon to make a nameprint!
Another quick-and-easy idea for the tactile cards is to trace the letter and make the letter’s sound at the same time (great for “imprinting” the letter on the brain!). Do you have any other ideas?!!
