This letter J craft with printable template is part of our letter of the week craft series, designed to foster letter recognition in preschoolers.
I know, I know… I am very behind on posting our letter of the week crafts.
It has been a couple weeks since we tackled the letter I (check out our letter I craft here if you missed it).
But, I am back today with our latest letter of the week craft post. This week we are moving on to the letter J.
This Letter J craft requires tracing and cutting. Depending on the child’s age, you may need to do the tracing and/or the cutting for them and have the foam pieces ready for them to work with. This way the child can skip the tracing and cutting and simply glue the pieces together.
For older children, such as pre-k or kindergarteners, you may want to trace the template onto the foam pieces for them, but then allow them to work on their fine motor skills by cutting the pieces out on their own.
