My little man is currently very excited about reading and spelling words. So I have been wanting to capitalise on this excitement with words and build some extra word activity into our home learning.
Twinkl has a road themed letter display pack – FREE to download. We actually have them printed out and laminated in one of his folders and he uses them to trace over the letters. So I knew he liked the letters (almost anything vehicle related is a hit with my little man). But this time I printed the letters onto card and cut each letter out individually. The cutting does take a bit of time – great to do in front of the telly- but for me it was time well spent.
The idea was that he would then use the letters to spell out his own words.
But he also practiced a few of our “important words”
Depending on which words you are wanting to practice with the kids you might find it useful to print a few extra letters – we found that a second copy of the vowels was very useful and also 2 copies of l and s came in very handy. But that really does depend on which words the kids are going to want to spell out.
It was a very simple activity but it was a success with a my little guy and he enjoyed creating his words with the road themed letters.
