Today I’m sharing a variety of ways to write letter R in preschool.
We like to make the alphabet in creative ways before we tackle those handwriting sheets.
I printed a giant letter R, and my preschooler filled it with raisins.
Next, he made an R out of rocks that we bought at the craft store.
My husband found some old rope in the garage. I cut it into pieces, and my Four used them to make the letter R.
He used his finger to write the letter in rice.
We always start with these letters of all sizes handwriting pages. We start with the biggest letter and go down to the smaller ones. Sometimes my Four isn’t up for the smallest letters, so we just leave them.
My level 2 pages are a great next step.
My Four is modeling how to begin our level 3 pages, but he didn’t actually complete it this time. These are tough for him, and I don’t push handwriting on the lines with four-year-olds. When he turns five and has a summer to go before starting kindergarten, we’ll pull these out a little more.
We have lots of other R letter activities!
