Our little learners need plenty of practice with learning their alphabet and alphabet sounds and this fun Christmas initial alphabet sound parade provides you with a great literacy center as you count down to Christmas.
Your students build the Alphabet Parade
by finding the 3 trailers with the picture that starts with the initial sound on the truck (except for x which only has 2 trailers).
This activity is great for your literacy centers
or I have also done this as a whole class activity by handing out alphabet trucks and trailers to students and together we build and alphabet paraded around the classroom.
You can differentiate
this activity by how much of the alphabet you provide, the amount of trailers to match or by just providing the alphabet trucks for students to practice alphabet order. You can also use the cards as a ‘what is missing activity’ by placing the alphabet trucks in order and removing some of the cards for students to figure out what letters are missing.
The cards will also work well in a guided literacy activity
; place out the picture trailers and go through the cards with your students sounding out the words for them so they can hear the initial sound and find the right alphabet truck to place the picture with.
