How to use the Christmas spelling mat
To make a reusable spelling mat you can laminate the printable and use it with wipeable marker pens.
Invite your children to pick a card, place it in the ‘say’ box, and read the letter / word out loud.
Then use a pen / pencil to copy the letter/ word in the ‘write’ box.
Finally, use play dough (try our candy cane play dough recipe or our gingerbread play dough recipe ) or pipe cleaners or letter-shaped fridge magnets to make letters to spell out your letter/ word in the ‘make’ box. This adds an extra sensory element to the practice, making it more memorable – and fun!
