How to Use the Picnic Letter Recognition Activity:

For this letter formation activity, your kids will first select a mat and identify the capital and lowercase letters on it.

They will then use a dry erase marker to trace over the dotted lines and write the letters.

Your pre-writers can also work on forming the letters using small manipulatives such as plastic ants to go along with the picnic theme.
