We learn about letters in a variety of ways. When I’m first introducing the letter, I like to print a giant block letter and have my kids fill it in with objects that begin with that letter. As they’re working, we talk about what they’re using as a way to reinforce the letter and sound.
“Here’s a giant letter B! What are we going to fill it up with?”
“Buttons… /b/, /b/, buttons.”
Today I’m sharing over 150 ideas for filling up giant letters. At the end of the post you can download your own free set of giant block letters. Throughout the list you’ll find links to Amazon products to help you find what you need. Have fun!
