handwriting books for preschoolers

September 19, 2011

Juliet is taking a Handwriting without Tears class in her preschool this year, so we are really focusing activities that help her practice writing her letters and numbers.

I was really excited to receive these two review copies of A Is for Apple (Smart Kids Trace-and-Flip) and 1 2 3 Count with Me (Smart Kids Trace-and-Flip) from Tiger Tales.
I've never seen anything like them--the letters are inset in the book, so you child can really feel the shape of the letter as she traces.
They remind me of those beautiful Montessori sandpaper letters you can buy on etsy. (I've also seen several DIY tutorials out there, too.)
Tracing the letters and numbers is really fun--I even found myself joining in! Baby Lucia who is extremely curious about everything her big sister is doing, likes to touch the letters and "trace" them, too.

Each page has a fun lift-the-flap element as well--extra tactile fun for little hands.

I've seen a lot of fun letter activities around and I'm curious, what are your favorite ways to help little ones learn to write their letters?
