This activity will be great to use at a literacy during the month of December. Print off the ornaments needed for the center and the recording sheet to go with it. Students take turns and pick an ornament. They then color the ornament on the recording sheet. Blank ornaments and blank recording sheets are included so you can customize this activity to the skills being worked on in your classroom.
Included: All capital letters on ornaments, all lower case letters on ornaments, consonant blends on ornaments, blank ornament sheet, upper case letters recording sheet, lower case letters recording sheet, word family recording sheet, and blank recording sheet.
Some sample ways to use this activity include:
ABC recognition – Match letters (ex: A and A) or match capital letters to lowercase letters (or vice versa)
Word families – students pick a letter and find a word family that would make a word. (Ex: if a student picked P they could put a p in front of –en to make the word pen).
Write a word starting with the letter picked. (Ex: if w was picked than student would write with.)
