Panda Letter Writing Mats:
Before children can learn how to read, they need to be able to recognize the letters of the alphabet by their shape. Using letter mats like these are a fun way for pre-writers to learn and practice letter shapes and formation.
Why Is Writing Important For Preschoolers?
Letter writing is an important skill for young children to learn and practice. Hands-on activities like this one will teach them about forming and structuring letters.

How To Use The Panda Letter Writing Mats:
To use this writing activity, your pre-writers and beginning writers will pick a mat and identify the capital letter on it. They will then start at the bamboo and trace the letter using a dry erase marker.
When your preschoolers reach the panda, they have “fed the panda” and finished writing the letter. Finally, your children can trace the letters at the bottom of the mat for more letter formation practice.
There are many different ways to use this letter writing activity. Your pre-writers can use a small panda to trace the letter. They can also form the letter using mini erasers, counting bears, play dough, pom poms, or another manipulative.
These Panda Letter Writing Mats are a fun way for your pre-writers and beginning writers to work on writing capital letters. This letter formation activity is a fun way to celebrate National Panda Day or a great addition to your zoo unit.

Do you have auditory learners that need to hear how letters are formed as they practice writing them? Using these Letter Tracing Cards, your students will read (or listen as you read) how each letter is formed. They will then practice writing the letter as they repeat how they are formed for multisensory learning. Click on the picture to learn more about this resource!
