Alligator Letter A Craft and Vocabulary Pack for Beginning Sounds Center
As you explore letters and beginning sounds with your kindergarten phonics activities, explore alphabet vocabulary cards to go along with first sound crafts! Each week, distribute the craft activity to your class. Two craft options are included for you to meet the needs of your little learners, one no prep, and one low prep. For morning work or center time, students color and cut crafts.
During your phonics lesson, students cut out word cards. Four word card options are included to provide differentiation throughout the school year. One set lists the words for students to simply read. You might also have students highlight the beginning letter (with markers for extra fun). With the second set, students copy letters to write words on the lines. With the third set, students read the word and cut and glue pictures on booklet pages to match. With the fourth set, students look at the pictures and write words on their own. Students glue cards together, or you might staple them. Glue the crafts to the tops of the book covers for display or keep separate and encourage students to build a little library of beginning sound books! My kiddos call these their “magic marker books” because they get to use their markers to color the little pictures for some additional fine motor fun!
You might keep your craft example to refer to as an anchor chart throughout your letter focus. For example, you might read the cards one day, having students clap syllables. Another day, delete the first sound as you read. One day, say the ending sounds of each word. Another day, rhyme each word. Hang all of the crafts up in the room, and use them to review beginning sounds throughout the year, too! An additional idea is to use the packets for the last 26 days of school as you do letter review! If you do a QU wedding in your classroom at the end of the year, tape letter crafts to chairs for all of the letters to be present at your ceremony!
