Young learners will have a “Fun filled and skilled” experience as they search for and cut out letters in their environment. This familiar activity of letter hunting is enhanced by the reinforcement of picture prompts that give clues to the sounds each letter makes at the beginning of most words. Saying and coloring each picture is a great way to connect letter and sound concepts. Hunting for letters in magazines and newspapers will help children make connections with print in their everyday environment.
1. First have children identify the capital letter in the middle of the activity sheet. Next, students name and identify each picture and listen for the beginning sound.
2. Provide students with scissors, crayons, glue and plenty of magazines, newspapers, cards, and brochures.
3. Encourage students to search for the target letter, say it, cut it out, and glue it to each space under each picture.
4. Color pictures at the end of the activity.
5. This activity is also a great task for independent center play.
