paint bag writing and letter learning

Today, Owen and I took a teeny bit of time before his rest to do some Paint Bag writing.

 It was such a beautiful day, and he played so hard outside at preschool, that I knew he needed something low-key and quick.

Owen and I have used the Paint Bag several times now, and it’s really just another way of getting little ones to have fun while they practice writing letters and numbers.

Paint Bag Writing

 I made this Paint Bag several years ago for tutoring and for Maddy when she first started writing, and it’s held up remarkably well.

Just a little bit of letter writing practice today, on probably one of our last warm fall days of the year. We had to save up some energy for more playground time after kindergarten pick-up!

 Where to start with letter learning?

If you’re not sure where to start with letter learning, start with the letters of your child’s name. Focus on the first letter, and then introduce the names of the people in your family.

 If a little one can recognize that ‘M’ is Mommy’s letter, ‘D’ is Daddy’s, and so on, then that’s a start!
