What's your favorite letter?
For this activity, have magnetic letters or alphabet cards available for students to use as a reference.
Ask students what their favorite letter is, and why. Allow time for discussion.
Students put on their Crayola® Art Smocks and cover their work space with recycled newspaper. Provide each student in the class with a model of their selected letter, as well as Crayola® Dough.
Students select a letter to create out of the Crayola Dough and find an alphabet card or magnetic letter to use while creating their letters.
On a plastic place mat, students roll the Crayola Dough into a coil.
Students shape the coil into their letters. A craft stick can cut the dough if needed. Also, the dough can be rolled flat, with the craft stick used to cut out the letter. Allow student projects to dry overnight.
Allow time in the school day for students to present selected letters to classmates. Ask students in the audience to suggest words that begin or end with each letter. For example, if a student created a "t", a classmate might offer the word "tug" or "cat".
