Today's Literacy Activity

Today we are going to practice writing the letters:

m  a  s  d  t

Let’s remind ourselves how to

hold your pencil correctly.

With your grown-up, say the rhyme to yourself as you write to help you to remember how to form the letter correctly.

       

 

 

See if you can write each one five times.

 

Thank You Speech Bubble

Now for the next activity!  We are going to write a speech bubble to say ‘thank you’ to Santa for a present you received or to a family member for a special time you had over the holidays.

Ask your grown-up to draw a large speech bubble on some paper or card for you.  Think about who you would like to say thank you to.  Grown=ups, please write ‘Thank you’ for your child and children, please have a go at writing the name of who it is for.

e.g. if your speech bubble is for Santa, think about the sounds you can hear in the word and write them down – S-a-n-t-a  or d-a-d or m-u-m.  Just do your best!

Now, see if you can draw a picture of you with your special gift or time you had!

Well done!  You can now cut out your speech bubble and give it to whoever you wrote it for or stick it in the window in case Santa flies by!
