Do you love fun activities for kindergarten? Today I’m sharing an easy, cheap, fun, hands-on way to work on letter recognition and sounds. What’s great about this sorting activity is that students learn to recognize letters written in various fonts which is important because not every book/sign/form, etc, is written in the same font. And this: sorting is a higher-order thinking skill for kids!
To make your alphabet learning game, you need a plastic shower curtain from Target, Wal-Mart, Amazon, IKEA, or wherever! I happened to find mine at IKEA. But they’re available anywhere, and they’re cheap. And cheap is good.
You will divide your shower curtain into 26 squares and label each square with a letter using a Sharpie or Magic Marker. I did a 5×5 grid and added the last square separately to make the measuring easy. And clearly, it’s not perfect because the squares aren’t all exactly the same size. And guess what? THAT IS TOTALLY OK!
And be sure to grab these sorting resources for your classroom!
