Using these alphabet mazes
- Write their name at the top.
- Look at the target letter, saying the letter name and the letter sound.
- Trace over the letter with their finger (or a marker), following the correct stroke order and direction.
- Trace over the two words above the maze saying the word, using the pictures as prompts.
- Starting at the top left corner of the maze find and follow the target letters until they arrive at the bottom right corner.
- The maze can travel up, down, across or diagonally.
- Occasionally there are two path choices such as in the graphic below. Both are correct!
Circle or cross off each target letter they can find. Try to follow the way through the maze but if they can’t, look carefully at all the letters and cross off the target letters as they see them. When they’ve crossed out all they can find, look at the whole maze to see if the way through is more apparent. Look more closely if there are gaps in the ‘path’ to find the target letters they’ve missed.
Trace over the target letters as they’re found to get lots of letter writing practice. Pay attention to the stroke order and direction so the letters are being practiced effectively.
Use different coloured markers to trace over the other letters in the maze. The other letters used are the following 3 letters in the alphabet. For eg, if J is the target letter the other letters used will be K, L and M.
Another good extension idea is to say the two target letter words, for example, ‘jam’ and ‘jar.’ Then think of two words starting with the other letters in the maze. For example, kangaroo and kite, lion and little, monster and moon.
