Around the Table ABC
Last night I cut out some letters for my son and threw them on the table. I was planning on thinking of a few activities we could do with the letters to practice his letter recognition and letter sounds. As I looked a the colorful alphabet laying on the table, I had an idea…
I took the letters I had cut out and arranged them around our dining room table. I put on our Alphabet CD and had my son circle the table, car in hand. As he went around the table “driving” his car, I stopped the music. Wherever his car stopped, he had to name the letter and the sound it makes. Then we did it again, but this time with his new toy bunny hopping around the table.
Animal Alphabet Sort
Next, I dumped out all of his small plastic animals and told him that we were going to put each animal on the letter that begins its name. So, we took the platypus and put in on the “p” and the kangaroo on the “k” etc.
Household Alphabet Sort
Our last activity with our letters around the table (we did this a different day), was to take things we found around the house and put them on the letter that starts its name. We put soap on the letter “s” and feathers and flowers on the letter “f” etc.
26 Letters Pick Up
I will admit that I tried to play 26 Letters Pick Up with my son, but he wanted no part. He thought it was too much like cleaning up and he opted out. My dog, on the other hand, looks like she wanted to play…:) What do you think?
