Print letters, words, or shapes on pieces of paper. Offer objects to place on the lines. This week we used some "jewels" from an old board game and some small rocks (from a craft store).
We focused on a key word; you could use letters from the kids' names or other key letters or shapes. In this previous post, you can see this same group of kids use lids and cube blocks on letters made from tape on the floor.
I love how simple things can keep kids engaged for quite a while.
Have you done this type of activity? How did the kids respond?
