I’m pretty certain that it’s scientifically proven that all kids love Legos and playdough. Use this fact in your favor to help kids practice letter formation with this idea from One Perfect Day. http://sulia.com/my_thoughts/db95c22ba9d5d6966a0d463f3a5371a4/?
Draw a letter on a pin board and have children push the pins in correct order to form the letters. (Could write numbers and even draw arrows to show letter formation sequence.) Great for fine motor skill development, but also for remembering the path of motion for each letter.
Inspired by the melted crayon art, I created this splatter paint project so I could talk to my Kindergarteners about the weather in the spring, "April showers bring May flowers!" They LOOOVED getting messy with the splatter paint. And the kids who don't consider themselves artists loved that they didn't have to touch their brush to their paper! Lots of fun!
