Color words/ The kids dump them out on a table or on the floor and sort the letters by color. and then they spell each color word using the correct colored letters. As an extension, my little ones love to then write the color words using the correct color of crayon.
Draw a letter on a pin board and have children push the pins in correct order to form the letters. (Could write numbers and even draw arrows to show letter formation sequence.) Great for fine motor skill development, but also for remembering the path of motion for each letter.
For this project, the children can use one to one correspondence to match the number of figures with the number noted on the paper. Having the dots color coded to match the figures in also very helpful and teaches colors.
