Roll and Dot the Letter Alphabet Activity
Since my son needs to review some of the letters and also needs some extra practice recognizing the letters b,d,p,q, an alphabet activity like this is a great way to reinforce letter learning and get some extra practice on letters that are still confusing.
It is also a great way to teach letter sounds. Every time my son dots a letter I have him say the sound the letter makes too.
For older kids, you can also turn it it into a game. Every time you get 4 in a row, you get a point. The player with the most points wins!
Using this Dot the Letter Alphabet Activity

My son really enjoyed going through the sheets! He likes rolling the alphabet dice. It makes it more like a game and less like busy work.
Of course, as mentioned above, he loves to use the dot markers to mark the letters as he finds them.
Even if you don’t have dot markers, you can still do this. Your kids can use crayons or markers to color the dots. Or they could mark them with craft pom poms, craft gems, counting bears or other small objects. *If your children still put things in their mouth, than avoid small objects.
My daughter also enjoyed doing the activity in her own way. She doesn’t know the alphabet yet and can’t identify many letters, but she really enjoyed going around the sheet and dotting all the letters.
This was a great way for her to work on fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination. I also used it to review and reinforce color names with her.
