You can print one letter a time, pick a few letters to print, or print the entire alphabet and have them ready and on hand whenever you need them.
Use a plastic spinner with a clear overlay, and set it over top of the circle with the capital letter and lower case letter. Let your child push the spinner.
The spinner will land on either the upper case letter or lower case letter. Your child will then pick the stamp for that letter and press it onto the paper.
Once one letter is completed, you can move onto another one.
Here are some ideas for what order to do the letters in:
- work your way alphabetically from A-Z
- do the spin and stamp activity for every letter of your child’s name
- if you do a letter of the week, use that letter’s spin and stamp activity for a center
- practice the letters of two and three letter sight words
