I Can Spell, Match, Trace and Write — March 2, 2018

I Can Spell, Match, Trace and Write

About the file:

This resource idea is such a fun way to introduce spelling and reading. Whether it’s a child’s name, a new word or maybe even a word that your child is struggling to learn.

Click to download

I actually made this resource quite some time ago and have shared it with mothers with children learning to read and write/spell and they have benefitted greatly alhamdolillah. I use it for my preschoolers too which they love. We usually begin with this resource before any language activity as a fun and refreshing way to start a lesson. You can do the same approach with any language too.

What I love about this resource is that it allows your child to explore different skills. And by using their name as a starting point, they’re more likely to enjoy writing, spelling and reading etc long-term since it has a personal touch.

I find it also helps to use this same approach when introducing new words, for example the word ‘hat’; let your child use this approach i.e spell, match, trace and write ‘hat’ if you run out of ideas.

How to use this file:

  1. Download file (Please feel free to copy this resource for your own personal use)
  2. Laminate all pages
  3. There are 6 pages:
    1st – Spell with fingers i.e point to each letter using the blue dot as a guide and say each letter out loud
    2nd – Cut out the black matching cards on 3rd page to use on 2nd
    3rd – See previous point
    4th – Trace with finger or use playdough of some sort
    5th – Trace with guidance with non-permanent marker
    6th – Finally, trace without guidance with non-permanent marker

How To Use This Book:

  1. Print everything out on white A4 paper (adjust your printer to ‘borderless’ and one sided OR two sided [recommended])
  2. Bind it at your local office supply

What you need:

  • This Book
  • Preschooler and Parent/Guardian
  • Pencil, rubber, pencil colours
  • Extras: blocks, legos, counters, playdough or something similar

Games and ‘Hands On’ Activities to play with your child:

  1. Cut out the numbers and shapes on sand paper and let your child trace them with their finger
  2. Cut out letters, numbers and shapes on sand paper or colourful card (twice) to make matching pairs, then let your child try to match them to the correct pair
  3. Get counters (preferably the same type and colourful) and lay them out on the table/floor. Print out numbers 1-20 labelled flashcards and let your child place the correct amount of counters on each card, making sure they count as they go. You can demonstrate examples for them and show them a pattern in counting e.g triangle has 3 sides, square has 4 sides etc. Get your child to look closely at how the counters appear when placed down together
  4. Cut out shapes in pairs (one big and one small) and get them to place the big ones on one pile and the small ones on the other. This will introduce them to the concept of more and less
  5. Use legos and blocks to build towers and get them to count how many they can
  6. Play counting games e.g ‘Duck goose’, place flashcards around them room and let your child run/skip/hop to them when you shout it out
  7. Get some number/shape magnets and allow them to ‘free play’ with them with/without you
  8. Make a number, letter and shape wheel each on a piece of card and on a separate piece of paper make your numbers, letters and shapes then stick them to a peg and ask your child to match it to the correct image

Tips:

  • Always take every opportunity to count, for example counting fingers, counting when taking steps up and down stairs, counting vehicles when outside and so on
  • Use mathematical language, e.g “Look, you have 2 blocks and I have 1, can I have another 1 please?”
  • When counting objects, encourage the child to move the object (they count) to one side as children at this stage are very visual
  • Introduce the number zero ‘0’ and do not overlook this. A good example is by first teaching them how to count 1,2 and 3. Put 1 or 2 objects in their hands and tell them that they have such and such amount of objects, then remove them from the hand and then tell them “Now you have zero objects in your hand”
  • Remember that counting numbers is more important than writing the numbers
