Young kids love to make things disappear. Let your child find and then erase the letters you name as you chant: I see the letter ___ today. Can you make it go away?
- dry erase markers
Step 1: On a whiteboard, randomly write eight to ten letters, using a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters.
Step 2: Give your child the eraser and ask him to erase the letters you name as you say the chant:
I see the letter ___ today. Can you make it go away?
Step 3: Continue until all the letters on the board have disappeared.
Use the letters in your child’s first name. Randomly write these letters on the whiteboard and follow steps 2 and 3 above.
Add more letters to the white board as your child becomes more skilled at finding them.
