Featured on Mom's Library: Hands on Literacy Activities

This week I am featuring hands on ways to explore early literacy learning. All of these great ideas were shared on Mom's library last week. I've used nearly all of them this past week and look forward to using the rest in upcoming weeks! Here are a few lessons about hands on literacy learning using examples from last week's Mom's Library:

Use a felt board to bring a story to life. Try making your own with this make your own felt board tutorial from Fantastic fun and Learning.

Use Playdough to explore letters and sounds like with these FREE Diagraph Playdough Mats from 3 Dinosaurs

Use active play to teach letters like in this School Bus ABC game from Fantastic Fun and Learning.

Set up Stations for hands on letter learning for ideas check out Teach Kids to Write the Alphabet from Measured Mom. 

Take letter learning to the bath. Here are some bathtub literacy ideas from Growing Book by Book.

Play a game to learn letters. Try this Superhero upper and lowercase letter match from B-inspired Mama.

Practice letter learning during craft time. Crystal & Co. features a letter of the week craft each week. This week's letter S snake is cute and is made in a very creative way!
