Magnet Letters Connect the Dots Learning Activity

By 5:00 AM , , , ,

It is easy to collect quite a stash of learning manipulatives homeschooling several children of various ages.  It's also easy to forget what exactly you have and/or you can easily get stuck in a learning manipulative "rut" only using the items one way.

Today we've teamed up with the Learning Manipulative Blogging Team to showcase different ways to use those alphabet magnets!

Give your alphabet magnets new life with this Alphabet Magnets Connect the Dots Activity.

We pulled out our Leapfrog Alphabet Magnets that I've had since Big Brother was about 3 or 4 and gave them new life with this Alphabet Magnets Connect the Dots Activity.  

Hands-on Alphabet Activity

Any variation of alphabet magnets will do, but we do love our Leapfrog Alphabet Magnet Set.  You'll also need a decent sized magnetic white board.  I originally purchased ours to use with our spelling curriculum, and it has been a great investment!

So, you'll need:
alphabet magnets
magnetic white board
dry erase marker

Randomly place the alphabet magnets on the white board.  You can try to make a design, too-- we tried to make a person and butterfly.

Next, have your child begin at letter a and connect the magnetic letters by drawing a line from one letter to the next going in alphabetical order.
{Another great way to work on alphabetical order is letter sequencing using Legos}.

Have fun!  We laid our white board on the table, but this activity can be used on a vertical plane, too.  It's also great way to work on crossing the mid-line!
