I Spy Letter Game
Do you have the big foam letter puzzle?? I am so thankful to have them because we use them for so many fun activities. Here is another alphabet lesson that my daughter and I did last year.
For this activity I let my daughter put the letter pieces where ever she wanted. She thought she was just making a really big hop scotch game. I did let her play some hop scotch but then we also did "I Spy." I really wanted to see how well my daughter would recall her letters when the letters were not in order. I was happy how she recalled her letters. :)
If you have never played "I spy" then let me share it. I would say, "I spy with my little eye the letter B" I would then allow her to find it but if I noticed her searching I would sometimes give her a clue to help find it faster, "I spy the letter B and it is the color purple."
We also did some color jumping. :) "Jump on the color red 6 times." The change the color and the number of times you jump or the action. You can use actions such as jumping jacks, leg kicks, or even a burpee. :)
