Spell name with velcro letters


The goal of this task is for the student to spell their name by rearranging Velcro letters.


  • Folder
  • Velcro
  • Laminated letters
  • Student instructions


  • Create laminated letters for each of the letters in the student’s name.
  • Put Velcro on the back of each letter, and in a long strip inside the folder.
  • For early learners, write the student’s name inside the folder so they can match each Velcro letter to a letter of their name.
  • Extend the task by adding other words, filling in missing letters from words, or by creating sentences.
