So many kids hit a roadblock with a certain letter, and U is one of Logi-Bears road blocks. I don’t know what it is about U, but it’s too much for him. He’s trying to figure it out in the context of “U-Turns’ which is really funny for me, for some reason. Anytime I turn in the car he asks if it was a U-Turn and then asks if U-Turns are legal (yes, my boys keep me straight and narrow).
He still hasn’t quite grasped U…but we’re working on it.
I’m still working through different materials that can be used with these Dot Marker pages, and it’s getting interesting now.
This time we used glitter glue. I liked this idea for multiple reasons.
- It’s uncommon and therefore interesting. My kids latch onto novel things, like glitter glue.
- Uses those fine motor skills to squeeze the bottles, but just squeeze enough.
- Practice with glue! The idea is to get a small dot and nothing more. I’m not sure if this is all kids, but my kids love to pour glue out by the boatload.
Patterning with two colors of glitter glue. The glue makes the perfect little bubbles. Love it.
And just regular dot pages. One could also stick little dots on here after for some more practice. Or double up on the glue. Possibilities are endless.
