Preschool Piddlings: Alphabet Spoons
This activity was included in the last preschool swap. I realized (too late) that I completely forgot to ask everyone to include instructions with the activity they assembled. I've had many people ask what in the world they were supposed to do with the bag of spoons. Daryn more than happily demonstrated for me.
Lay out all the uppercase spoons in a line on the floor or table. Help your child lay them out in alphabetic order. You can even sing the ABC song as you do.
Once the uppercase spoons are laid out, it's time to match the lowercase spoons to the uppercase. Find the lowercase A and lay it on top of the uppercase A. Continue until the entire alphabet is matched up.
If your child is just beginning to learn the alphabet, take it slowing. Just focus on a couple letters at a time. For example, only lay out the upper and lowercase A-C. Add more letters as their learning increases.
