I love doing "Letter Building" with my babies! We have found that we can do a lot of these virtually! We build our letter of the week each morning in different ways with different things, such as small cube blocks, linking cubes, craft sticks, Wikki Sticks, and play dough!

Kids can make their words on the trays, and then use those words to write sentences. It’s SO useful for virtual learning! I've linked the letters in my bio.
