Animal Alphabet - Circle Time Activities (Letters Y & Z)
Circle Time and Large Group activities (and games) to play with children are here! Children learn letter recognition and phonemic sounds better by playing and having fun. They also have an active interest and curiosity about animals. Why not combine both? In the style of the phonics curriculum called, “Zoo Phonics”, each letter is associated with an animal. Each animal has a compilation of simple group games that reinforce the first letter phonemic sound while using important facts about each animal to have fun. Included for each animal alphabet letter is two to five ideas of fun and simple games teachers can use to get children actively involved in learning the alphabet. Photos are enclosed to show actual teacher created game pieces that have been used during classroom play.
Note: These ideas strengthen cooperative play, following directions, listening skills, socialization, taking turns, short and long term memory retention, some letters work with patterning , visual and auditory discrimination, sequencing, color discrimination, hide and seek, and much more.
Included in this set:
Y is for Yak
Z is for Zebra

All activities have been used in my classroom and are “teacher tested, child approved”.
