Big Body Letters

Leave a comment


This morning, our students got excited about trying to figure out how to make various letters using only their bodies. Not only did the students have to access their knowledge about letters and the shapes we use to represent them, but they had to work cooperatively to move their bodies to make the correct formation. Using directional language, the students (and sometimes the teacher) guided each other to twist, curve, or straighten their bodies so the letter could take shape.
