Every week day of the summer holidays, Bella Learning will be sharing simple, fun and curriculum-linked ideas to keep the learning going while the kids are off school. Today... A is for Alphabet! 🍎3-5 year olds: sing the alphabet, say the alphabet, watch alphabet videos, find words beginning with different letters of the alphabet, alphabet puzzles, write the letters in sand. 🍐6-8 year olds: practise the alphabet off by heart, write the alphabet out in colours with pictures, know the vowels and consonants, solve anagrams, say the alphabet backwards, play alphabet word tennis with different subjects like names, foods, singers, football players... 🍊9-11 year olds: put words in alphabetical order, use dictionaries confidently, collect new vocabulary in an alphabet book, create and crack codes using the alphabet.
Some diverse styles of lettering for children’s’ books. Must always put legibility first with those. These days could children ever read script? If they don’t learn to write it they might not know how to read it.
It may not always be possible to work in the workshop, but that doesn't have to stop you from working. I setup shop last night in my living room again, to continue working on hand sanding these letters. These are almost complete, just have to go over them a couple more times with some higher grits then they will be ready for finish. #sanding#woodworker
