Here’s a nice little freebie to start off your week.
I’ve been working on it for a few nights and would like to share it as a download for all of you.
Follow this link to download and then print. It will print 4 pages which you will need to trim (to get rid of the excess margins), then either glue or tape together, as show.
It’s a good idea to laminate it for little hands. I always use Duck brand clear laminate adhesive rolls, which work well especially for large items like this.
And voilà! You will have a simple, 20″ x 12″ poster (or placemat) that can aid you in teaching your child their upper- and lowercase alphabet letters, counting and numerals 0-20 (with quantity dots on 1-9), 18 basic 2D shapes (circle, square, diamond, trapezoid, rectangle, triangle, oval, parallelogram, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, semi-circle, star, heart, crescent, cross, arc, arrow) and 14 basic colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, brown, tan, gray, white, blank, gold, silver).
We are going to use it as a placemat to cover up this adorable little table that Damien got. While I love the Elmo and it is an adorable design, I didn’t really like the random “ABC” / “123” / “colors” design that was cute but not very practical – in other words, decorative but not useful for teaching.
Have a great week and happy learning!
