Matching letters to form a word is an important skill in early literacy

fine motor clothespin activity: Make alphabet on clothes pins and word flash cards for child to spell out.

This is a fun game we play if the children are interested in writing letters. We place the chairs in a circle, and I place a letter and a different colored marker on each chair. While the music plays, children march around the circle holding a clipboard with paper or a dry erase board. When the music stops, they must find the closest chair, take the letter and marker and write that letter on their paper or dry erase board. (try with sight words, too)

Pre-Writing Activities

*could do with math facts* write a number on each chair and write a fact that equals that number. "Musical Letters"-when music stops write letter that is on chair (try with sight words, too) Multiplication facts instead! SO FUN!
