There are so many ways to strengthen pre-reading and pre-writing skills that have nothing to do with books or worksheets! Young children can easily become frustrated with writing, because their gross motor skills are developing faster than their fine motor skills.
It is not until they turn five or six that they can truly master writing implements. But… that doesn’t mean that they still can’t have fun with letters! In Miss Carrie’s class, we like to think outside of the box. For this activity your little ones were encouraged to read in a very special way. Using pictures of a shark, along with the letters S-H-A-R-K your little one practiced matching blocks with the letters S-H-A-R-K to the picture. Everyone had fun discussing what shapes their letters look like and the corresponding one!
