How to Make the Ant from ABC See, Hear, Do
Aaaaa! Practice the letter A sound and make this absolutely adorable ant craft with your kids or students!
Learn What Sound A Makes!
Finger Painting Ants
A is for ants! Paint or stamp ink fingerprints are a fun way to create plenty of these creepy-crawly critters. Don’t forget to add legs and antennas!
To extend the craft, turn your ants into hungry ants who can only eat things that start with the letter A. We printed some pictures of clip art food we found online, then added the word labels below each picture. Feel free to leave the labels off for more advanced children. No printer? No problem! You can draw your own foods or try to find letter “A” foods in your own fridge and pantry. This is a great way to have fun and practice multiple beginning reading skills!
Writing A's in Shaving Cream
Writing with shaving cream is a great sensory activity that kids love! Not only does it provide excellent practice for letter writing, it also helps with beginning reading skills as kids practice letter sounds while using a multi-sensory approach.
As your child advances from sounding out individual letters, give them several letters to write and encourage them to sound out each letter and then blend them together. More developed readers can also practice sight words.
