Optional: You can open the flaps and add sentences.

  • Matt the fat rat sat on a mat.  As he sat he pat his bat.
  • Gran and Dan ran to the van to get a pan.
  • Rap, tap, tap, clap your lap.

Or you can write a group of similar words to practice together:

  • ap, cap, gap, lap, map, nap, rap, sap, tap, clap, etc.
  • at, bat, cat, hat, fat, mat, nat, pat, rat, sat, tat, chat, flat, etc.

Fantastic idea; I'm going to do this this weekend!
.&nbsp; This is soooooo neat! I wish I had seen this when NachoDaughter was a little younger ... about 25 years younger. ;)<br />
i chose run!!!!!!&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; (first direction- last frame)<br />
Most excellent!&nbsp; And with the choice you made for the &quot;a&quot;&nbsp;shape, you could even do &quot;o&quot;&nbsp;words on the same template.<br />
Thanks, it's funny you mention it, I&nbsp;am trying to make a four letter one now... but the word &quot;combinations&quot; are a lot trickier.&nbsp; <br />
Neat - I like the way you've used this addictive form of finger manipulation to teach vocabulary.&nbsp; And the shaving cream paint is brilliance.<br /> <br />
