How To Use Dot Marker Printables
Did you know there’s more than one way to use these worksheets?
Of course, kids love using dot markers, but if they want to mix things up a bit, there are other ways to use these printables.
To make these summer pages reusable, laminate them or slip them into a page protector and use them with dry erase markers.
Instead of having the kids dot each page, they can fill them in with color or use an “X” with the letter recognition and skill worksheets.
Do your kids want a more hands-on approach?
Try a maniuplative for the kids to fill in the bubbles!

- gummy bears
There are so many ways to make these summer worksheets even more fun!
