This lesson can be done with manuscript or cursive letters. Then they went over their name to make their letters thick.The students were given a pre-cut board, about the size I thought was right for the length of the individual's name. They formed letters out of bread dough worms they rolled, making them the right size for the boards they had just sanded.The students first sanded the board smooth, and screwed in two little hooks for hanging the board. We let the letters sit until dry, then I baked the bread dough letters in the oven until completely dry and hard.
