Activities for practicing letters

Posted on September 23rd, 2014 by

Hey gang! I found an awesome source for activities that support and develop the “letter of the day” we saw in our practicum last Friday! Although these activities are geared towards preschoolers, we could easily adapt them to make them developmentally appropriate for kindergarteners as well. This blogger also has many¬†links for books that reinforce each letter sound, so be sure to check it out! Click here for the link.

    Thank you for sharing this! You are right, we can easily adapt these ideas to Kindergarten or higher elementary grades! I’m sure you all noticed all the books, rhyming, poetry, songs, etc. in the classrooms during Practicum. Math was even incorporated in even the copyright date during story time! Showing that language and words are such a large part of the world will open them up to noticing common words like ‘stop.’ Lots of movement has been incorporated in the classroom as well, from drawing the letters, to using sign language. Working with letters and their sounds frequently will ensure that these early readers are reinforcing their learning. Great post!
