I read a post a while back that really got me thinking. Amanda at Not Just Cute put out an Alphabet Chart Recall. It’s worth reading, especially if you are in the process of teaching letters. Her focus for the article is the Letter X and how hard it is to match X with an object familiar to kids. I’ll let you read what Amanda has to say, I would love to know what you think. Leave me a comment, maybe we can get a full blown discussion going!
what you need: Letter X ~ construction paper ~ X tile spacers ~ glue
My hubs was putting in tile once, a long long time ago. I stole his bag of tile spacers…he hasn’t laid tile since so I doubt he noticed. They are perfect little X’s. You can find tile spacers at the hardware store and they are CHEAP.
We are reaching the end of the alphabet… but don’t worry starting in September I will be post a Letter of the Week Activity to go along with the Letter of the Week Art.
