Just the other day, I was reading a post about fun activities to teach preschoolers alphabet letters. Aurie mentioned making a road in the shape of a letter. I knew this would be fun for my preschooler, and decided to try her suggestion one day. We made an 'a' from his wooden train rails and he drove his vehicle around it. Then, we made a 'b' and he took a few turns about his 'b' road.
Afterward, he started naming all the letter roads he wanted to build.
Definitely a successful and fun hand on learning activity; thank you, Aurie for your sharing!
