R Paper-Mache For Kids

How To Make Letter R 3D

Learn how to make letter R 3D and enjoy fun R paper-mache for kids with Elliot and myABCdad Learning for Kids.

Ever since starting our project together, Elliot and I have been tossing around the idea of creating a Word Wall in his bedroom. We have been visiting letters of the alphabet, printing upper and lower case versions, learning the sounds, names and actions to help remind him. Elliot has been pointing to letters he knows in his environment with increasing regularity. I have mentioned a Word Wall and he has commented that they have one started in his classroom. We needed to act fast, but how?

A Word Wall in Kindergarten classrooms is pretty standard. It is great to help children locate words by the letter they start with. Words can be added by the teacher and eventually the kids as the year progresses. The Kindergarten classes I taught always heard me bang on about the benefits of creating their own at home.

Fast forward a few years and the time was ripe to start one of our very own. After making piggy-banks from 3D shapes and paper-mache, Elliot and I thought about pinching the idea and applying it to letters. Instead of shapes we taped rolled up paper to cardboard R r cutouts. We applied paper-mache and painted them. Now that we have finished our 3D versions, Elliot is keen to have a go and repeat it for all letters in the alphabet. What’s more, he is already adding words to his new Word Wall. What a terrific, colourful way to celebrate letters and words.

Dad

Elliot is in Kindergarten in France. He is also learning at home with his dad. At myABCdad Learning for Kids, we offer teaching resources and video tutorials to support learning at home for parents and kids.

With 15 years of primary classroom teaching experience in seven different countries across our gorgeous globe, I create practical, visual worksheet resources. My son Elliot joins me to have a go and try each. We capture the action on video to help frame ways to help learning and build understanding working alongside children.

I love tailoring resources to meet the needs of my growing son. We also love sharing with you. Please let us know if you have questions, requests or ideas by sending us an e-mail at – myabcdad@gmail.com
