Week 2: Reading

Before the activity- Practice pointing to each letter as you sing the alphabet. Remember to say the sounds of each as well!

Activity: Q-Tip Letter Trace! (with or without paint)

The Q-Tip Letter Trace activity is great for young learners because not only can your child practice letters in a fun way, but as well it incorporates writing, hand-eye coordination, and as well fine motor skills!

(With paint) — Prepare a stack of all 26 alphabet letters in a pile faced down. Write capital letters on a large sheet of paper using different colored markers. (May use capital, lowercase, or both capital and lowercase paired.) Have your child pick a letter from the pile, then trace the matching letter onto the sheet by dipping a Q-Tip into the paint and tracing the matching letter.

(Without paint/Rainbow writing) Prepare a stack of all 26 alphabet letters in a pile faced down. With a pencil, write all 26 letters on a large sheet of paper. Have your child pick a letter from the pile, then trace the matching letter onto the sheet with a chosen marker. Use a different marker for each letter traced. Rainbow writing!

Challenge your child by allowing them to tell you what letter they found before they get to paint. If they get it correct, they can paint the letter. If they don’t, they must put it back in the pile and try again when it comes back up! You may also ask your child to tell you “What sound does this letter make?” or “What is something that starts with this letter?”
