These letter puzzles are not only great as a center or word work activity, they make an inexpensive & fun gift for your kiddos.
Print off each child's initial in color and laminate. Cut them apart, mix up the pieces and fasten with a paperclip.
Run off a set of BW ones and give children a choice of which letter they want to color, cut and put together.
While you're doing all of those busy 1st-day activities, children can be putting their personal puzzle together.
These strip-puzzles are a quick, easy & fun way to help your students practice counting and sequencing numbers, as well as review lowercase letters and words that begin with that letter.
Each letter has a puzzle that counts by 1s to 10, counts backwards from 10 to 1 and skip counts by 10s to 100.
They are in color as well as black & white so children can color & make their own.
Make a laminated, full-color set to use as an independent center, or do as a whole group activity.
Before older students cut their puzzle into strips, have them write the words that are featured in the picture. After they have cut their puzzle into strips, they can write an additional word that begins with that letter, on the back of each strip.
When they have done that, give them a paperclip to fasten their puzzle together to take home. Or…
For an interesting “craftivity” have students glue their puzzle to a sheet of brightly colored construction paper. Remind them to leave a little bit of a gap between each section for an especially cool mosaic effect.
Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board.
