Dot Marker and Letter Mazes

We use the pages from the Romping & Roaring A Pack to review out letters with the dot marker and the letter maze. We used apples to make our way through the letter maze. We used dot markers for the A dot marker page. We have used other things with them as well. Try to make something hands on and not just a worksheet when you can.

  1. What wonderful apple activities! They look like so much fun!

  2. I like your ideas you’ve presented here. The one that I know my son would like is “follow the a path” because he likes patterns and mazes. He’s got a great eye for finding hidden things. Pinned and shared! =)
