Letter Hunt for Early Literacy: A sensory literacy activity for toddlers and preschoolers learning the alphabet. Ages 18 months ELA 2 Demonstrate awareness of the alphabet APT 2 Demonstrate flexible thinking during play
Children choose a letter out of a bucket and dab it with a bingo marker. (Different colour for each letter.) Good for letter recognition. Do something similar with numbers 1 through 10 or Can add pictures for sound recognition also
Also have a tub of objects on table and do not have pictures of A objects below so they find the right items Alphabet play dough mats. Easy for beginning kindergarten because the letters on mat look like real play dough "snakes".
ENVIRONMENTAL PRINT (Print & Word Awareness Activity) - I Spy Letters:: Use real life items and put on a wall. I used to also have kids bring them in and put them in a photo album in the class library.
