Children love learning about the "naughty" newt in the Amazing Action Alphabet Flip Chart! The newt is "naughty" because he writes on the walls with nail polish! So of course we explore the letter N with nail polish!
Use the nail polish to review the letters taught by painting each letter on the nail. I found a basic Hand Clip Art for you to use!
You can simply ask the child to identify the letter on each nail. If the child is correct they can paint the nail with nail polish.
Or you can ask the child to identify the letter that begins with a specific word. (e.g. "Paint the nail that begins with the word pan." The child would obviously paint the nail that has the letter p on it.)
Another enjoyable activity is matching the uppercase letters on the nail polish bottle with the lower case letters on a brush. I simply found a Nail Polish template and wrote the letters on the brushes and bottles.
A matching game really shows the teacher if the learner knows the skill taught.
Using nail polish is a great way to build fine motor skills. Many children do not want to use a pencil, but find painting with the nail polish much more enjoyable.
Using the nail polish uses the same motor skills as using a pencil... So your child is now "writing" with pleasure!
