Using an Alphabet Flip Chart to scribble


Hello! My name is Kristel and this is Kelli and
we’re here today to talk with you about a strategy that can be used for kids who have a difficult time holding pencil or a marker and who may want to participate in a scribbling activities. So it’s called an alphabet flip chart and what it looks like here it is it’s got all the letters of the alphabet in blocks up for so each page shows you different block of letters and at the bottom here is just some sticky paper or you could use an erasable marker. This one is laminated. or you could use an erasable marker. This one is laminated. and you can do some writing and for kids you have a difficult time
scribbling. We know that scribbling as a precursor to being able
to you write and when kids scribble we often assign meaning to that scribbling and so for kids who have a hard holding a pencil or marker, this is a wait for them to
participate in that activity and enhance their literacy development. Ok, let’s try this out! Alright, so Kelli is going to do some choice making here. As a first step it’s important to know how your client or your
child says yes and no So Kelli, how do you say yes? So Kelli is nodding her head. yes and how do you say no? so that’s important to establish that
you can accurately interpret We’re going to do some letter
choices today Kelli. Do you see a letter you might want to write in that row? No, Ok, Flip it over. What about this block? No? What about this block? OK. This first one? No? is that this one? No? Is it this one? Oh, ‘L’! And so as the communication partner I would write the letter ‘L’ ‘L’ says (phonetic pronunciation) Would you like to write another letter? Shall we keep going? Let’s try. Is it in this block? No? Is it in this block? OK. Is it this one here? Oh, ‘M’ is a great letter. ‘M’ says (phonetic pronunciation) ‘M” is for mom. Yeah good job, ‘M’ for mom. Alright, shall we write some more? OK, is it in this block? No? Is it in this block? Oh, it is. OK. this one? Is it this one? No? Is it this one? ‘S’ yes There is the letter ‘S’. ‘S’ is for snake. and slippery. Yeah. Should we do some more writing? OK. Is it in this block? No? Is it in this block? Oh, it is. Is it this one?, this one? Oh, ‘V’. There’s the letter ‘V” (phonetic pronunciation). ‘V’ is for vacuum. (laughing) So that’s an example a how to might do some scribbling. You can keep this
paper is just mark the date on it some scribbling. You can keep this
paper is just mark the date on it and see over time if there’s some patterns that develop, if there are particular letters that your child or student might choose more often and you can use some exploration with that. You can expand as on at the the last page here there are some different choices ‘Oops’ is a choice, or ‘Start Again’. You could add a space, some punctuation, that sort of thing so that they can start combining letters together to create some words. Thanks so much!
