Elementary School Resource: Writing with Beans

Elementary School Resource

Writing with Beans

In this activity, students will use navy beans to spell different words. The teacher preprints the words on tag board with the corresponding picture – for example, spell the word apple and glue a picture of an apple. Using liquid Elmer’s glue, go over the letters of the preprinted letters on the card. The child places the beans on top of the glue to form the letters. You can use color words, children’s names, simple objects, or any word related to the theme you are working on.
