Letter and name recognition are early literacy milestones for young children. This activity provides creative engagements in tactile and kinesthetic learning.
As children learn about the letters of the alphabet, invites them to use Crayola® Model Magic to create the letters contained in their names. Encourage them to observe the use of upper- and lower-case letters, variations in name lengths, similarities in letters in names, and other letter and word characteristics.
Have students put on their art smocks and cover work space with recycled newspaper. Challenge them to design decorative patterns on Model Magic letters with beads or other craft materials. Demonstrate for the class several ways of approaching this task. Invite students to attack the task with an approach shown or another that they are comfortable with. Once student artwork is completed, allow at least 24 hours to air-dry.
