Letter puppets make spelling practice feel like playtime.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 07, 2013
Materials needed to make the adorable letters are cardboard paper letter cutouts, paint, glue, craft sticks, Plaid Mod Podge, and decorations such as colorful paper streamers and googly eyes.
Use a large cardboard piece to cover the table. Cut out the letters and paint them front and back. Once they are dried, apply Mod Podge with a roller and attach the paper streamers. Once everything is dry, glue googly eyes on the front of the letter and the craft stick on the back for puppeteer accessibility.
Let the child have fun by putting on a puppet show. If is hard to hold the letters up for words that are longer than 4 letters long, add a strip of hook and loop tape across the top so the child can set the craft stick ends into it and the hands are free for more letters.
Working on spelling words and sight words becomes very easy and turns into a game. The child will become excited about words and the study session will pass in no time.
