You will need:
Flashcard of letter G (upper and lower case), rope, chalk, slate, paintbrush, water, bowl.
Write letter G (upper and lower case) on the floor with the help of rope for the child to walk.
Keep water in a bowl and paintbrush ready.
Letter Formation is the third step in introducing a letter. It focuses on experiencing the formation of the letter symbol.
Letter formation is experienced by the child in two stages in this activity. First, experiencing the formation of the letter with the body and big muscles, and secondly experiencing the formation of the letter using their fingers to trace.
Every time the same process must be repeated for upper and lower-case letters.
• Let the child look at the letters written on the floor. Ask the child to identify the letter and say its sound.
• Ask the child to remember words that start with the sound g/ g / g. Give hints if required like, a fruit we eat (guava), a place we go out to play (garden).
• Please refer to the image to explain the formation of the letter.
• Demonstrate how to write letter G by walking on the letter G made out of rope. (the walk on the rope should be an exact representation of the way we write letter G) Ask the child to walk on the rope in the same manner 3-4 times while you give verbal instructions for the formation of the letter.
• Show letter G flashcard to the child and keep it near the slate. Demonstrate how to write the letter with a brush using water. Make the child write the letter and erase it. Repeat for the lower case letter too.
• Practising multiple times will be helpful. Assist the child if needed.
