J is very interested in letters again and has decided he wants to start doing some of his letter book crafts and this week he asked to do J. I thought he was going to ask to do something about his name but it was J is for Jellyfish – so that’s what we did. Working on letter recognition with phonics (or letters sounds) is one of the first steps to reading and making connections between the letter and the sound at the beginning of the word is one of the steps in that process.
What you need to make our J is for Jelly Fish
How you make J is for Jelly Fish
I quickly cut out a letter j form some paper and drew around it on our letter book – I do this to give J an idea of the way letter looks and a template to glue his letter on. Giving him the parts of the letter he glued them into place.
I cut out some semi-circle shapes very roughly and some wool. J then used sticky tape to stick the wool to the jelly fish bodies to make tentacles. We are in the middle of a Mummy do it phase and so I was told to draw eyes on the jelly fish. He then stuck them to the letter j he had glued down.
