Of course we start with list Hh words that start with Hh hearts ,hats,ho ho etc Then we practice writing and tracing the letter Hh . Then we use a big cut out of an H and trace between the lines in the H color usually the color of month (green ) Then we added some hats (guess who's? Santa's hats )
They are in strips like i leave each month around for the children to cut up . (Montessori concept ) to practice their cutting skills and hold paper right . I usually have a pile of strips each month for the children to work on . I use a different color each month to match our color of month .When they are done i keep all the squares they cut and we will use through out the year . nothing goes to waste . You can also do lines like triangle for more advance children to work on .
We then did something called Play Dough mats . simply printed Letter H for us then i took green play dough of course and they practice rolling and cutting play dough to form letter H . I slip them in clear sheet protectors or you could laminate them . these are endless . May next month snowman play dough mats ? Christmas tree mat ? Am excited to add this to our months curriculum .
