Fun Valentines ABC Tracing Strips

ABCs are something you can work on all year long. I know that we are always working on tracing our letters many different ways. February’s Free Homeschool Deals printable is some Snowflake Tree Themed ABC Tracing Strips.

They are something that would work great with my Valentines ABC Find.

Free Valentines Theme ABC Tracing Strips - with uppercase and lowercase together - 3Dinosaurs.com

I have loads of winter activities on the site and it would also work well with my Valentines Pack! It has some single page ABC tracing sheets.

These are great for later PreK and Kindergarten. You can use just the letters you are looking for or the whole set. They are great for winter.

I recommend cutting and laminating the strips to use them over and over. You can use a hole punch to make a hole in the circle and put them on a ring. It also makes them easy to store.

What you will find in these printables:

  • All 26 Letters
  • Heart Theme
  • Uppercase and lowercase tracing together
  • Exmaple of how you trace each letter
  • Spot to put strips on a ring
  • 6 pages of printables

Hands-On Learning With Diphthong Ladders

Word ladders are one of my favorite ways for kids to learn. You get to build the word and have a fun time doing it. Plus you can make so many different words.

My youngest loves when we have these to build and make words with. They provide a great hands-on learning for her. She always gets excited when she sees them. Plus it helps build her vocab and spelling skills for school.

Today I have the free Diphthong Ladders for kids that are working on them!

I like that you can always print and use what you need with these ladders. It makes it easy to set up a center when you know the diphthongs you are going to be working on. These also work well with the vowel team ladders.

Each page has two diphthongs on them. This makes them the perfect size to use with letter tiles or lacing letters.

I give my girls the small version of the diphthong wall cards, lacing letters and the diphthong they are working on or reviewing.

The wall cards provide them with examples of words that they could build. I give them just one of the cards at a time.

Once they get going they have tons of fun building the words. It allows them to mix up the letter and see what makes a real word vs a made up word.
