Number, letter formation and name writing - for these strips, you will need a whiteboard pen. The strips indicate where the letter starts and the direction that your child should write in. This is something that I will be working on in school all year and something that can be an issue in Year 1 and 2 so the more emphasis on these activities, the better! You can get creative with this one, instead of just using a whiteboard pen and the laminated strips, there are some ideas below;
Use chalk on the pavement/concrete
Dip a paint brush in water and form numbers and letters, also on concrete
Use shaving form and form numbers and letters in it with your finger
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
