Pre-K YOUR Way: Decorating Letter "S"

This week, we will be looking at the letter "S". Every day there will be a letter "S" activity. Children learn in so many different ways, and this includes learning the letters in a variety of different ways. These letter activities teach how to write the letter and the sounds of the letter!

Today, we will be learning the letter "S" through Sensory/Art Play!

*Note - Today is part 2 of a 2-part activity. This activity uses yesterday's Clay "S".

Materials Needed:

  • Baked “S” from Activity #2 (see above)
  • Watercolors
  • Optional: Sequins or glitter and glue

Instructions:

Step 1: Place the clay “S” on a baking tray lined with wax paper.

Step 2: Encourage the child to use watercolors and a paintbrush to paint the clay letter. If desired, provide the child with sequins or glitter and glue, allowing them to decorate the letter.

Step 3: 3-D, hands-on visuals of letters help children understand letter formation which helps them when they start writing the letter with a pencil. Have your child trace the letter with their finger, a crayon or a marker.

Step 4: Place the project on a shelf overnight to dry.
