So, the other day Jon and I had a “date” to Hobby Lobby (yes, when you are married 16 years, you turn just about every out-of-the-house-alone-together experience into a date) and we came across these giant foam letter stickers. I knew right away that these would be “Korban approved!” And sure enough, he had a blast doing this simple little project to help him learn more about building words.

I took a plain white sheet of paper (but it might be more fun on a giant sheet of drawing paper) and put two words I wanted him to learn. Honestly, he already recognizes these two words, but I thought it would be good review to start with. I wrote in giant, spaced lettering:

Next, he peeled off the backing and started sticking letters where they belonged. You can see I forgot to use uppercase, but that may have been a good exercise for him, anyway, since he had to switch from lower to uppercase in his head. (Thanks to his Preschool Prep videos, this is not a problem, though). 🙂

One thing I loved about these letters was the size! He could easily peel the backing off and put them down on his own without getting frustrated.

All in all, this was a fun and educational activity that met his needs as a kinesthetic learner! It was a great way to get him excited about sounding out words, too, as he decided to get a little creative and add/exchange a few letters in his words. 😉 I believe “Korban” ended up as “Kozvan,” so we had fun with the new nickname and giggling every time we went back to the page and sounded it out again!

Hope this gives you some good fun with your little kinesthetic learners, too!
