Few month back we learned letter K (k for Katrina).
We made Katrina’s name out of paper – we cut out the letters and decorated them with different materials and techniques: ribbon lace, fabric, little rolled up newspaper balls, dried flowers, stickers, etc.
Girls sticked the letters on an A3 paper (Katrina had another task to organise them in the right order) and placed it on the wall above their table. Every time Katrina wanted to sign her work she had the name in front of her.
It worked perfectly. Now, after three months, Katrina can write her name not only in capitals, but also in written letters (after a month I changed the example to written letters). Yesterday, for the first time, she wrote her name without any help.
Lo is always happy to participate in writing activities, yet still not interested to write her name on her own (sometimes just the first letter).
As always we had a game of Secret box with the letter of the week (read more about this activity here, and the usual writing, colouring, and a letter finding activity (download printables here).
Another great educational activity templates for children, u can find here (for example, k for king template).
We also had fine motor skill activities: yarn ball winding (k for latvian kamols / yarn ball); origami ship folding (k for latvian kuģis / ship) and floating it in the bath. This was the first time that Katrina and Lo tried to make origami. It wasn’t easy but, with dad supervising, they enjoyed it and therefore would love to do it again.
