Head, Body and Tail Alphabet
Submitted by Anne (11-10-2012)
To assist in the revision of knowing letters, sight words and handwriting skills:
After first modeling this to the children, I ask them to draw a small cat for me at the top of their page - eg red head, blue body, green tail. The children pick up a sight word card - look at the word, say the word, then decide what type of letters have been used to make the word - letters with a head, body or tail. The children then write the letters according to the colours that they used for their cat. eg 'big' b is red, i is blue, and g is green. It seems to work best as a little 10 minute revision activity.
