Kinder Kapers: Learning the Alphabet ROCKS!

Learning the Alphabet ROCKS!

I am so excited that I finally made my alphabet rocks. I've been wanting to do these since I came across Shannon Martin's post from Kindergarten Hoppenings here. I wanted to put her great Chicka Boom Boom freebie and the alphabet rocks I saw on Pinterest together. So I did!! First I gathered clear stones from Michaels and printed out the letters from Shannon's freebie on cardstock. I also tried to make my own letters using good old comic sans in a word document. I left the printed letters…

Name puzzle.  Here's how I will turn this into a Big Kids "tot tray" activity.  I have a metal snack tray (like what you would use to serve breakfast in bed).  Make cards with names of family members (or other people or even frequently misspelled words) and have those along with a box of magnetic letters so that child can find the correct letters to spell the name.

Easy Cheesy Name Puzzle

Making name puzzles doesn't get any easier than this. "Name puzzles help children use their own name to learn about letters. By putting together their names, children learn how to look at letters. They notice the distinguishing features and orientation of letters. They learn that words are made up of letters and that the order of letters is always the same." (Pinnell and Fountas, 2011). Materials Needed: Magnetic letters, a magnet board, Sharpie, pencil, piece of paper, and some tape…

Scrabble Gallery Wall Art --- Glue scrabble tiles to form the names of members of your family to a "cork" board.      I think I might attempt to slightly modify this idea... maybe gluing the scrabble letters to push pins? Sort of like magnetic letters on the fridge... @Emily Schoenfeld Schoenfeld Patterson this is a good idea for your f

You know I’m working on the front entryway (I guess proper folk call it the foyer), and I saw an idea on Pinterest that I had to run with. I spotted this picture on a square wooden board at the Goodwill and thought it would be a perfect candidate for $1.95. This scrapbook paper is at Michael’s. It is a thin layer of cork on one side and you can peel off the back to reveal the sticky side. ($1.95) And stuck it right over the flowers on the board. I call this shot cork cum random cherry…

Use a pizza pan to hold magnetic letters as children practice working with medial vowel sounds. After making the words on the pan, the children write the words down on paper.

Keen On Kindergarten

I hope your October is off to a good start! I am still in a bit of shock that it is already October and time to start thinking about report cards! I'm not ready for that at all! September went by so quickly, that I still have tons of photos that I never got around to posting and blogging about-I will try to get to that this week! My kinder kiddos have been working super hard to learn all of the letters in the alphabet, and they love playing different alphabet games during our center time. We…
