Uu - Letter Recognition

For tactile activity , we used sandpaper letters.  This is a very good activity to practice letter awareness.

You can purchase this but you can make one very cheap. See here : DIY Inexpensive Montessori Sandpaper Letters

We also used the sandpaper letter as a guide to practice tracing it using a salt tray.

We did a Letter U collage activity.
