1. Click on the button. 2. Use the tool and put the popcorn letters in the right bucket. 3. If you use the we can hear you say the letters as you move them! 4. There are 4 pages. You can do them in more than one session if needed, or choose 1 or 2 to complete and skip the rest. 4. Click on the green to add to your journal. Simplify: * Only do the first page (a-g). You can arrange the letters around the correct bucket before having your child move them. * Model the name of each letter as your child moves them and have them repeat. Example: You say alone "Lower case 'e'" then say with your child, "Lower case 'e'". Direct them as needed. * Ignore the case and just say the alphabet letter as your child moves and plays with them. Extend: * Have your child do all 4 pages. * Have your child say the sound each letter makes instead of or in addition to the name of the letter. * Have your child find all the letters in their name. Core Standards: ELA 3 yr.2.3: With prompting and support, identify print in everyday life including numbers, alphabet letters, letters in their own name, and environmental print. ELA 3 & 4 yr.2.14: (With prompting and support, begin to) Identify the names and sounds of some upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet, including those in their own name.
This is an extension of a terrific activity by Karen Green. Thanks for the great idea, Karen!
