Sand Paper Letters
In Montessori classroom we use sandpaper letters to teach the sound that letter make.
Though in the classroom we use a specific Montessori material, this activity can be done at home with flour and a tray.
What You Need:
A tray, flour, paper and marker
You can write the letter on the piece of paper. Place the letter and the tray in front of the child. Use the first two fingers of the dominant hand to trace the letter on the card and than in the tray. Sound the letter out. Encourage the child to do the same and to sound out the letter. You can also encourage the child to find an object at home that starts with the letter or think about as many words, which they know that start with the letter.
- Help provide a sensorial impression of letter shape
- Preparation for writing
