The children were exploring the letter “R” by gluing rice on the red letter…

By gluing on the rice, the children are able to draw the connection of the sound of the letter “R” to something familiar, something they will remember, and something they can feel…

The “R” shape was precut for the children so they could focus on the gluing experience and the texture experience…

Rice is such a fun medium to explore…
