Alphabet recognition activities and letter ID intervention are so important in preK and kindergarten, but finding hands on activities can get difficult and it can get easy to fall into a rut. These activities will help you take the guesswork out of letter recognition intervention!
The reason I love these centers so much is because they’re editable! That means that I can choose my target letters, type them in, and print. I can have students practice matching uppercase letters to lowercase to practice letter identification, or same case letters to practice visual discrimination.
I use these alphabet games and activities with my pre-A guided reading groups, rti intervention groups, and I put them in our literacy center tubs! That way I can be sure that, when my students are practicing independently, they are practicing these target letters that we’ve worked on.
Another great thing about these activities is that they are predictable as the actual task does not change, but they change themes each month to keep things exciting! This makes them perfect for literacy or word work centers! Once i’ve introduced an activity in my small group, I can make it a center and my students are able to complete it independently, meaning I can pull guided reading groups during this time!
This activity is the perfect quick practice at the beginning or end of a guided reading lesson! Just put out the target letters and then give each student 1-2 of the smaller letter cards for each letter. Go around the table and have each student identify one of the letters in their hand and match it to the correct spot. Repeat until all the letters are matched!
You can make this center easy to check by putting colored dots by the letters on the spinner and then having students match cubes of the same colors to the matching letters on the board!
Since I have just finished April-June, I have put these centers together in a super discounted growing bundle! That means that, for the price of just those 3 months, you will get 8 more months for free! No joke!
