Yet another use for foam stickable letters. Spell simple words on the back of a paper plate. Stick the same set of letters on clothes pins. Let child match the letters one at a time to the letters of each word. Tell child that he/she has just spelled that word with the clothes pin letters.
This activity really was a little beyond M. (partly because she still has difficulty clipping clothes pins) I think I'll pull it out again in a few months.
