Learning Games For Kindergarten:  Shiver Me Letters

Start off reading the book Shiver Me Letters A Pirate ABC!  The pirates go on a treasure hunt to find the letters of the alphabet.  And as we read, we read it like a pirate every time the pirate says “R”!  “ARRRRR!”  We learn letters and do an interactive read-aloud!  And it’s a fun pirate kindergarten activity!

Science Of Reading Learning Games For Kindergarten

After reading, give the students magazines. I ripped pages of magazines and gave them a page each. They had to find a letter, cut it out, and glue it on our letter chart! When they came to the chart, they had to tell me the sound and letter.  
To make the letter chart, I used chart paper and wrote the uppercase and lowercase letters!

The students cut out one letter at a time, say the sound and letter to me, and glue the letter on the chart! To add a challenge to this lesson, students could have to come up with a word for that beginning sound!  See, phonics should be fun and engaging!
