Extending this activity

  • -Read Stephen T. Johnson’s book "Alphabet City". Ask the child to trace the letters with his or her fingers. Take a neighborhood walk, and look for letter formations made from surprising objects in your community.

    -Invite your child to find other objects with straight lines such as crayons or sticks that can be used for making letters.

Adjust for an older child

Make letters with three or more lines such as A, E, F, H, I, K, M, N, W, and Z. After making a letter, the child may attempt to write the same letter on a napkin.

Adjust for a younger child

Make letters with silverware and ask the child to name the letter you have formed.
