Whether you teach preschool children or college classes, there will likely be a need or use for cutout letters. The letters can be put on bulletin boards to create fun designs or held in front of the class to show students what the letters look like and how they are drawn. Here are a few ideas so that the process of cutout letters is as easy as possible.
An easy way to make classroom letter cutouts is to make the design online first. You’ll be able to choose the color of the letters as well as the size and the overall design. When you’re happy with how the letters look, you can print them on the type of paper that would work best for your project.
When making classroom letter cutouts, you want to make sure the colors of the letters contrast well with the background that will be used. Bright colors work better on white or black while darker colors tend to stand out against brighter shades. You could also make a dark border around bright letters so that they are set apart from the background.
Making Your Boards
When you put the letters on board for your classroom to see, think about the size of the board and the size of the letters you want to use. You want the class to be able to see the words on the board, but they shouldn’t be too big as they can take up too much space that could be used for the information you want to teach.
