spelling with milk caps

Pin It
this is an activity that i thought about when i taught preschool before Bear was born.  i wasn't able to get enough miLK cApS for the names of the 20-some kiddos.  neeedless to say, it sort of fell by the wayside.  so i decided to revive it to help Bear develop his literacy skills.

after i'd save enough milk caps i labeled each one with the alphabet in uPPeRCaSe and LoWeRcASe.  initially, i wrote the letters out on a piece of paper and place it in front of him to see what he would do.  after surveying the materials i gave him, he instinctively began matching the caps to the corresponding letters on the paper. 


it didn't take long for him to master this.  so i switched it out with a loWeRCasE alphabet sheet and milk caps.

i'm making woRD shEEtS of common words that Bear can relate to for us to use with these next.  as soon as i get them done, i'll post them.
