Ants in the Salt Tray

Writing can be especially frustrating for young learners, and so we use a variety of methods to keep our spirits high!  One of these is the salt tray! Adding a salt tray or salt box to the preschool classroom is a wonderful way to promote writing skills.

In our second week of ants, we talked about the letter A. To encourage your little one to practice their writing skills, we wrote letter As in salt tray!

Using small paint brushes, your little one “painted” a letter A with their salt.

They then added ant toys that they placed “inside” their letters.

Lastly, they enjoyed pushing their ants around, creating salt ant hills for their creatures to live in.
