Alphabet Book – Hunting for Letters, Cutting Skills, Learning Our ABCs
Hi all, this is a short and sweet post this morning about an activity we have been working on. Doodles and I have been having lots of fun working on letters and phonics recently (just the basics). Oodles has been joining in too, but the activities were aimed at D (almost 5 y.o). Today, after doing an “a” sound hunt around the house, listing as many “a” words that he could identify, we decided to do a letter hunt in our magazines and comics. This was great cutting practice as well as helping D to identify as many letters as he could.
His first job was just to cut out as many letters as he could find. He then stuck the letters onto the first page of a scrap book entitled “Our Letter Hunt”. We then picked out a foam “A” from our box of foam letters and numbers and stuck it into the middle of the next page. His next job was to cut out as many “A”s as he could find. I was delighted to see that he cut out lots of types, not just small A’s but lots of font styles! His next task was to search through the comics searching for pictures of words beginning with A, and again he stuck these onto the scrapbook page.
Over the coming days we will be adding to our alphabet scrapbook!
Check back in a few days and we will have more photos of our book as it grows and develops.
