As you know from the topic work blog letter c is the second letter we worked with during this week.
The children found this letter very easy to write as they had already written other caterpillar letters. Besides coming up with words which start with the letter c sound we also played a first letter sound game online so they can further develop this skill.
They also practiced writing it on the interactive whiteboard after which they proceeded to write the letter on their workbooks. This is how the pages looked like:
Besides following the letter formation mentioned in the above pages I stress the following points
To help the children get the correct formation:
- Letter c is written in one motion. We do not lift the pencil from the paper whilst writing it.
- When we start writing this letter we curve straight away. If we do not do this we end up with letter i.
We practiced these first letter sounds by working the following page.
