My students need a variety of alphabet activities to use during center time.
In Kindergarten classrooms today we would hope that all children would know the alphabet fluently when entering kindergarten. That is not always the fact.
I have a class of 22 students in the morning and 22 students in the afternoon.
These 44 kids come to me with different backgrounds in learning. It is my job to teach them where they are and build new knowledge as they are ready. Some children I get have not been to Pre-K and does not have a solid foundation of the basic alphabetic principles.
I would like to build up my alphabet center with games and activities. It is very difficult to move onto reading and writing skills when children don't know a letter from a word from a number. I need to give them a lot of practice playing with the alphabet. I am very fortunate to teach in a school that has provided a tutor for our early childhood students. My students would not only be able to use these activities in class, but take them in the hall and play with other students, including our Pre-K students, that need alphabet practice.
You can help me lay the foundation that children may have missed out on in their early years.
They need to master the alphabet before moving onto other concepts that they need to learn in kindergarten. These alphabet games would introduce them to a fun world of letters and sounds that will eventually make them successful little readers and writers.
