Hello! I am Triana from Rocky Mountain Mama. I am a stay at home mother of two and a former elementary school teacher. Now that school has started, it’s time for your little ones to work on their letters. I cannot tell you how great it was when kids came into kindergarten knowing their letters! Here are 5 activities you can do with your little one to work on letter recognition and letter formation.
1. Salt Board
Get a cookie sheet and fill it with salt. Using their index finger, have your child form a letter in the salt. Make sure they start at the top! If your child isn’t quite ready for this, make the letter in the salt for them and then have them trace over what you made. This activity is also great for practicing numbers and shapes. Kiddos love the feeling of the salt on their fingers.
You can get a cookie sheet at the dollar store if you don’t want to use your own. This also works great with shaving cream, yogurt, flour, etc.
