Language activity “Cooking the letters”

Who can do it?

  • Children from 4 to 6 years old.


  • Paper or a notebook, color pencils, cooking ingredients. 

How do we do it?

Prepare a space to write, with good light and as posible without noice, such a desk or a table.
Tell the child that today you will write a recipe to remember the ingredients you need to make cookies or the recipe you like the best.
Start by writing the first ingredient. As you write, reinforce the sounds of the vowels and consonants of the word.

Ask the child to write the following ingredient. If he/she doesn’t know all the letters, invite him/her to write the vowels or consonants he/she knows. Continue with the rest of the ingredients.F

Congratulate all of the child’s writing attempts. You are now ready to cook your recipe!
