How To Use The Emoji Letter Formation Cards:
First, your preschoolers will select a card and identify the capital letter on it. They will then form the letter by putting a mini eraser in each circle.
You should encourage your children to use the erasers to form the letters as they would if they were writing them especially if they are just learning how to write.
For even more fine motor practice, your children can just jumbo tweezers to pick up the mini erasers and place them on the circles.
What Other Manipulatives Can Be Used?
In addition to using the emoji mini erasers, your kids can also use pom poms, buttons, play dough, or another small manipulative to form the letters.
Your preschoolers can also practice forming the letters using a dot marker such as a Do-A-Dot marker or Bingo dauber.
Dotting the circles is a great way for them to work on hand control and pencil grip.
