Last week I made an A, B, C box for my little girls, who have been using it all week long. It is deceptively simple and is teaching them in a way that is fun. A5 in particular has loved using it
I’ll probably add to it, but so far it has some alphabet stamps, pen, magnetic letters, lettered pegs and spelling cards:
The stamps can be printed onto the magnetic white board and wiped off easily with a cloth. This will be fun letter recognition for B2 with some reading and spelling practice for A5:
I included the pen for writing practice for A5. Really the possibilities are endless from writing and copying words to writing the capital letter to small letters I have written, or visa versa:
I stuck small foam letters to one side of a peg and the corresponding capital to the other side. This meant the girls would have both capital and small letters to choose from thus introducing the idea of capitalisation:My plan for these was to use them on name strips of the characters we have studied in our Mr Men homeschool:
These boxes have been such a big hit with my girls, especially A5, who asks to play with the Mr Tickle number box and Little Miss Bossy letter box every day. You hear that word? Play – that’s what she thinks she’s doing. My heart is all light and fluffy!
