Fun Day Monday

Hi there…. as another week begins lets think about having some fun….

This week we’d like to share another letter identification activity which is very easy to set up and is great fun to do.

For this activity you will need:

  • Magnetic letters – you can use as many or as few as you want depending on your little one’s ability to identify the letters
  • A bowl – a washing up bowl would be ideal
  • Popping corn or rice
  • Cards with letters printed on them – you could trace round the magnetic letters to help your little one match them

and all you need to do is:

  • Fill the bowl with the popping corn or rice and the magnetic letters
  • Hand your little one the cards with the letters on and show them how to search for the letters in the corn to match them up with the letter on the card
  • Get your little one to tell you which letter they have found as they match them up
  • To extend this activity you could get your little one to tell you a word that starts with that letter EG. I found an “M”, “M” is for “mummy”
  • You could also get your little one to identify the letters in their own name and spell their name out
