A is for Aluminum Foil

I’m pretty sure I gleaned this activity from one of our preschool curriculum books. It was way too easy and successful for me to have come up with on my own.   All three of the Littles (Noah 7 DS, Bella 6, and Seth 4) enjoyed this project.

Black paper.

Chalk or white crayon.

Draw the Letter A

Glue stick.

Aluminum foil squares. (Moms, cut the squares before the activity begins.)

Need I say more?

(One little hint – my kiddos got tired of gluing each little square and then sticking it on the A. I wound up letting them put glue over a small section of the A and then stick the foil squares onto the paper before moving to the next section.)

Okay, okay. Two little hints. Kids love working with material they don’t usually get to put their hands on. Using correct line order, have them trace over your A with the chalk or crayon. I believe that for struggling learners and those with special needs, every single repetition of a motion, a letter, a word, counts; so let’s try to capture every opportunity we can.

Let’s hear it for the Letter A!
