Children can color their poster all at once, or keep the poster in their writing journals, and color only the letters that they have studied & mastered.
This is a wonderful visual way for kiddos to see how much they are learning in a short amount of time–a real self-esteem builder.
You can also use the poster to play an “I Spy a Letter” game. Give children an M&M or other manipulative. Call out a letter; children cover it with their playing piece.
You can see at a glance who is having difficulty, which makes this a quick, easy & fun way to whole group assess.
