I've been working with Dustin on letter recognition and try to find different ways of going about it. Then it came to me. He LOVES hitting stuff . . . anything really, so I designed a handout where he was encouraged to hit and we wouldn't tell him to stop.
I created one page that had the entire alphabet. Then I drew up a wasp, bumble bee, and fly, and placed them around each letter. I made bigger versions of these on flashcards, about 6 per page. That way when we buy a new fly swatter, we can hang up the flashcards and he can swat at the BIG bugs.
He seemed to really enjoy it and kept his attention for a whole FIVE minutes!!!
I didn't take the time to laminate my fly swatter, so needless to say it's not going to last very long with Dustin. As long as he has fun, I don't mind.
