It's Free! Just because there are greater demands on kindergarteners than ever before doesn't mean we have to abandon engaging and fun activities.
Sight-Word games and lots of other reading activities/games/tips
Alphabet Shopping- shop for items around the room that start with a letter.
Take Aim! I would stick or write the numbers on a wall and then use a wet sponge to throw at the numbers.
Leaf Name Game (from The Pleasantest Thing) can change this seasonally to create a center activity!!
Letter Roads and pieces. It looks like it uses the same concept as HWT. Going to print these out for school next year!
JOLLY SONGS A-Z(from the big book JOLLY SONGS) great for weekly memorization of letter sounds
Kinesthetic activity to get young kids to spell one syllable words before they start writing.
Initial letter/sound activity. Clip the pictures to the correct peg! Great idea.
Outdoor Scavenger Hunt for Pre-readers. This is a fun literacy activity to do outside. From Sugar Aunts
