Spell out children’s names, high frequency words, or spelling words with this technique.

Tall letters (b, d, f, h, k, l, t)  - touch your head
Tummy letters (a, c, e, i, m, n, o, r, s, u, v, w, x, z) – touch your tummy
Toe letters (g, j, p, q, y) – touch your feet

H – touch head
O – touch tummy
P – touch feet

Clap as you say the word “hop.”

*Slowly say the alphabet as you touch the appropriate body part.


Hold up your hand and stick your thumb out to the side.   The index finger will be where tall letters start.  The knuckle represents the middle dotted line.  The thumb represents the bottom line.  Practice writing invisible letters and words using your hand.
