I saw this fantastic idea at www.imperfecthomemaking.com. What a fun way to learn how to spell words!
I knew it would be added to my teaching names curriculum the moment I saw it!
I printed names on card stock using a bubble letter font so the children could color them.
I used all capital letters.
I wrote lower case letters on the clothes pins.
The children match the lower case letter to the uppercase letter.
They learn to recognize the letters in their name & what order they go.
This was a huge hit! The kids loved this "game".
**Bonus** Strengthen the pincher grip small muscle!
