Montessori Activity: Tracing Letters & Numbers with Stencil

Age: From 3 years old (Level 4)

Activity Duration: 5 - 15 minutes

1. 1 letter stencil
2. 1 magic pen or marker
3. 1 plain paper

1. Demonstrate by holding the stencil on a paper and tracing a letter with a marker.

2. Let your child try.

Additional Information:
Here is another method of providing a varied and interesting way to learn the letters and at the same time, practising pencil grasp. Joshua (2Y11M25D) tried this today and he enjoyed it. He did it twice for a total of 20 minutes. Joshua commented that the letters were not joined, because there is a strip in the middle of the stencil to hold the letters together.
