Practicing Letter Formation With Toy Trains

This morning we used our Melissa and Doug train set as a learning tool for language arts!  We formed letters using the tracks, and then practiced proper letter formation by driving the trains around the letter tracks.

Miss Preschooler definitely benefited from this, and though First Grader is pretty good about proper letter formation, even he had to think about how to drive the train around the track properly, making me think this is a great way to reinforce letter formation even if you think you know it!
