Both of my boys are active (to say the least), but Little Brother is definitely my kinesthetic learner. He has to be moving and touching in order to learn…and a lot of times I don’t even know if he is actually retaining anything I’m attempting to teach him until much, much later down the road. He loves moving and he loves cars, so I thought both of these tactics might help as I’m trying to reinforce letter recognition.
Here’s what you’ll need for this activity: masking tape and small toys/cars.
1. Use masking tape to create the letter on a hard floor.
2. Let your child experiment with it for a little while–Little Brother used it as a road and drove his cars on it.
3. Next, encourage your child to put small toys or cars along the lines of the letter.
