Getting Ready for Kindergarten: Writing Letters
Letter formation Busy Bag
We created a free printable for you to use as a busy bag activity using the baked cotton swabs. Children can copy and build letters with the cotton swabs using an upper case and lower case letter form. Get the printable for lower case letter formation and upper case letter formation by signing up for our weekly newsletter. These letter building forms can be used in so many ways! Build letters with cotton swabs, dyed lollipop sticks, play dough, pipe cleaners, string, or other manipulatives.
Just for our newsletter subscribers, we’re offering our FREE upper case and lower case letter builder printable. Use these printables to work on letter formation with your little ones. An adult can write the letter on the left side and kids can trace the letter. Use manipulatives to build the letters. Print off the sheets as many times as you need: one for each letter or laminate the sheets and use them over and over again for all of the letters. (If you laminate the sheets, you can use a white board marker to work on writing letters over and over again.
