Learning the upper case and lower case letters of the alphabet can happen like magic when all students participate in awesome alphabet activities. Learning letters and sounds is an important first step in learning to read but it’s not as easy as it sounds. But it is easy to make working with the alphabet fun for all students!

What to use for awesome alphabet activities for all students?

Of course, you add any type of small candies to mark the spaces on a worksheet. We like to use gummy pumpkins during the fall season. During another season work with M&M’s or Smarties!

Basically, we spin a spinner that contains all the letters then we find the matching pumpkin. The sheets are differentiated so kiddos that need lower case practice as compared to kiddos that need upper and lower case practice can still think they are doing the same thing.

An Amazing Alphabet Activity for Fluency

Reading an alphabet chart and pointing with a pointer makes phonics and letter naming fun. As the students point, you observe one to one awareness also. If kiddos have difficulty pointing to the letters hand over hand works best! Remember, teacher observation is critical.

Afterward, add a timer to work the part of the brain to develop fluency. Basically, set a timer for 1 minute. Have the students point and say the sound or letter. If a letter is said incorrectly, move back 3 spaces. Then continue. When the timer goes off, record the last letter spoken. Next time, try to get to a letter that was closer to the end.
