The children enjoyed working with the second letter for this week – letter n. They wrote it on the interactive whiteboard, played games which included this letter and mentioned words like nose, neck, nice, numbers, nine, nurse, necklace, nail, nail polish and nuts.
They also practiced writing this letter on their workbooks. This is how the pages looked like:
As you can see from the pages above letter n is a one-armed robot letter. This is because it has like one arm jutting out.
Besides following the letter formation mentioned in the above pages I stress the following points.
To help the children get the correct formation:
- Letter n is written in one motion. We do not lift the pencil from the paper whilst writing it.
- The top part of the tunnel has to be round not like a square.
- Letter n has a tail at the end.
- The tail cannot be very long.
Here are some photos of the children working with letter n.
