Share the wonderful alphabet with your class. They will see a series of 26 photos each containing a child holding a letter of the alphabet. As each photo progresses, a group of children call out the name of the letter shown. Tip: As an art project, make an alphabet picture book like this one.
This animated film highlights the letters of alphabet found in signs throughout a community. This could be used as a review of the alphabet before a reading lesson. Pupils could create a class video or books showing signs that start with each of the letters of the alphabet.
Have fun with student photographs in this phonics activity! Learners sort their classmates' photos by initial sound on a large poster board with the alphabet written vertically down the left side. You can also use the picture cards provided here, of which there is one for each letter of the alphabet. This would make a fun introduction for most people, at least once all photos have been categorized! Which letter has the most names beside it? The least?
Get creative with phonics by having kids create a letter-sound mobile! Using a hanger, hole punch, string, and the provided image and letter cards, learners practice matching medial sounds to their corresponding vowels. Students attach the vowels to the hanger (three are pictured, but you can probably fit all five) with string and then proceed to attach each image below its medial sound letter. There are five images for each vowel, so keep in mind this may get hectic if strings become entangled, kids can't tie knots, etc. Consider using a circular wire if possible.
In this home activity worksheet, 2nd graders will focus on the letters of the alphabet. Students will make a list of items that can be discovered on a neighborhood walk using the different letters of the alphabet. With a partner, students will exchange lists to discover who can find the most items listed.
Playing the classic memory game is a great way to teach your emerging readers the letters of the alphabet. In the game presented here, upper and lower-case letters are printed separately. Pairs of pupils play together and try and remember where the matching letter is lying, face-down on the game board of a letter they pick up. Not only is this a good game to build memory and concentration skills, it's also a good way to reinforce the pairing of the upper and lower-case letters.
Learners create an original alphabet book using technology. In this alphabet writing lesson students develop multimedia presentations which can be printed as books or Word processor Alphabet books. Older student may present their books to younger children. Learners share books in classrooms.
Students complete a variety of activities related to the letter M. As a class they recite a tongue twister with the assistance of a moose puppet, then trace and write the letter M. Students then listen to the book "If You Give a Moose a Muffin," and draw a picture and write a sentence about an object that starts with the letter M.
