Are you looking for a fun way to teach the alphabet to kindergarteners? These directed drawings can help you do just that! You can use these directed doodles as a fun way to teach the alphabet to kindergarteners or preschoolers.
Directed doodles are simple, 4-step directed drawings. Moreover, each doodle matches a letter of the alphabet. Students can practice letter recognition and handwriting, while developing their fine motor skills.
Directed Doodles are Helpful
Kindergarteners are like little sponges, soaking up every new information every day. The activities we do with them help guide and refine their learning. Directed doodles provide many opportunities to engage children, while teaching them letter identification.
Here are different areas that directed doodles can help with…
- Fine-motor skills practice
- Practice hand-eye coordination (motor planning)
- Pencil control and grasping
- Build concentration and organization
- Sustained attention to task
- Following directions
How to Use Directed Doodles
Directed doodles are perfect for home or school. They would be fun to do as a whole group, where you projected the activity on a Smartboard to show how to correctly form each letter and create the drawing. Additionally, they make great center activities or could be used for morning work.
