This packet has ideas for each letter of the alphabet. It is intended to help you celebrate each letter of the alphabet. The research tells us that the more of the five senses involved in learning, the more likely it is to move the information into long term memory. The lessons include things to sing, to eat, to act out, and to paint. This is a great way to get PreK and Kindergarten students excited about the alphabet.
You can adjust the time frame used to celebrate each letter. Letters can be highlighted for a single day or a week, depending on the ability of your students. The letters can be taught in any order that makes sense to you. For example, if it is October and you are teaching about squirrels, this is a great opportunity to celebrate the letter S/s.
In these units, you will teach the letter and the sound it stands for at the same time. You will be able to pick and choose activities. I hope that the lists will inspire you to make them your own by adding your own ideas to customize them.
Enjoy this time spent learning the alphabet with your students. Taking the first steps toward literacy is a magical adventure!
