Flower Letters

This week in the literacy area we have been continuing to explore letters in the world around us. The children were invited to create letter shapes using some beautiful spring flowers,

“I made a T with sticks.”

We also made an alphabet matching game to help us explore what letters sound like.

We hammered the nails into the wood.

We wrote the letters all by ourselves.

We chose the pictures for each letter and stuck them onto the wood.

Finally we could play our game!

 

Letter Learning

This week in the literacy area we have been talking about letters! We shared what we know about letters with each other and discussed different ways we could learn more.

Some children were interested in writing letters so we provided lots of learning opportunities for them to explore writing letters in different materials. As usual we have got a little messy at times but that’s all part of the fun!

Using wet sand and letter stencils to print…

“I am finding letters from my name.”

Using shaving foam…..

“I can write my name.”
“I can do all my letters”

Wet, slimy mud…..
