Letter of the Week ~ V ~ Velvet

We are nearing the end of the alphabet.  Don’t worry if you missed the Letter of the Week up to now, just click here and start with which ever letter looks like the most fun to you!

what you need: Letter V ~ construction paper ~ glue ~ velvet

Print out the Letter V, cut it out and glue it to a piece of construction paper.  Give your kids pieces of velvet and glue.  The velvet we used is from a giant roll of Christmas ribbon I found in the bottom of a garage sale box.

We use glue in different ways, sometimes with a paintbrush and sometimes straight out of the bottle.  There are advantages to both.

Can you imagine the skills it takes to do that?  Concentration, fine motor strength, fine motor control, eye-hand coordination.  I took this to show just how important it is to allow kids to use glue with few restrictions.  (Sometimes squeezing glue just to get for the experince of squeezing glue is important.)

There you have it…two perfect Letter V’s.

What ways to you get in fine motor practice?
