As I was
stalking researching early ed blogs, I found a bunch of neat phonics activities. I liked the idea of finding a bunch of words that started with a certain letter. I decided a cut and paste activity would be great for fine motor skills, also (not to mention fun for a toddler). However, most of the activities of that sort I found would have all of the words begin with the appropriate letter. I wanted Xander to have to analyze each object/word to decide whether or not it began with that letter. So, being the perfectionist that I am, I made my own activity.
Each letter has a bunch of objects, some of which do not start with the given letter. There is a grid for cutting guidance. There is also a page with a big outline letter (that I will print on cardstock).
We started with letter B. Since he is not very good at cutting, I cut the objects into strips, rather than having them cut them all out completely.
The B and the leftover objects.
***UPDATE: Great News! I now have all of the letters done! If you're going to post about using them, please link back to my blog!
These are the training scissors we used before he moved on to big boy scissors. He's also partial to glitter glue!
