OT Corner: Ice Cream Cone Prewriting Practice Freebie

[Source:  Your Therapy Source]

If you are looking for some quick, multisensory prewriting practice, download this ice cream cone letter freebie from the Ice Cream Multisensory Prewriting Practice packet.  This one-page black and white PDF includes the letters A through L in a dotted font.

Here are a few multisensory activity ideas for the ice cream cone letter freebie:

  1. Tactile Letters – have the child practice putting small glitter glue dots on each letter dot.  Once dry the child can practice tracing over the bumpy letter for additional feedback.  This activity teaches children how to use a proper amount of glue, provides hand strengthening while squeezing the glue and the end result provides multisensory feedback for letter recognition.
  2.  Sensory Bin Letters – cut apart the ice cream cone cards.  Place them face down.  Provide the child with a paper plate with sensory materials on the plate such as colored rice, sprinkles, shaving cream, etc.  The child turns over a card and “writes” the letter with his/her finger on the sensory tray

Anti-Racist Resources for Early Childhood Educators

[Source: No Time for Flashcards]

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that we are in the midst of a significant shift, I hope it’s a significant shift. Black Lives Matter demonstrations have moved from big cities into small towns and suburbs. Change is being demanded, and as teachers, we have a huge role to play in change.  If you are a follower, you know that Anti-Bias Education has been a focus of mine for many years. However, I’ll be honest; I am still very much learning the difference between it and Anti-Racist Education. Some educators use the terms synonymously, while others caution against doing that
