Learning letters

Made by a student of 7 years old

You need:
  1. drawing sheet 20 by 20 cm
  2. crayons
  3. liquid watercolour
  4. brushes
  5. jar with water

Draw a 5 cm grid and copy it on drawing sheets. Give every student a grid sheet. Students use crayons to write big handwriting letters in the squares. Trace the lines of the squares with crayon too using one colour. Paint the squares with liquid watercolour.

In Holland we call those letters 'lusletters', 'letters with loops' if I translate is. The first letters children learn, at the same time as they start learning to read, are called 'blokletters'. Block letters?

How do you call those letters? Blockletters? Writing letters? Who can help me?

  1. I love this and I am going to try it! From where I come from we differentiate between 'print' and cursive' (with cursive joining the letters together). Different schools use different fonts. We use Sassoon Primary, which is very similar to this. Not all schools start with letters that have the cursive tail. Other teachers may use different terminology.

    Thanks again for your lovely idea :)
