I made this simple activity as homework for one of my little guys. He happened to be working on his diagonal lines. That week we focused on the letter x.
His mom brought it back the next week and said I should share it with all of you. She carried it around in her diaper bag (she has a newborn too!) and by the next week forming diagonals was simple as pie for him!
All you need is a paper bag, red, green and black markers, Wikki Stix and some wooden craft sticks or popsicle sticks.
|Make a green line at the top to indicate where he should start. Measure the length of a Wikki Stick at a diagonal and then add the red line so that he has the baseline boundary.|
