Letter Sounds Scavenger Hunt

file-7

This is a great activity for getting the kids up and out of the classroom!

The format goes with WONDERS kindergarten reading curriculum, but anyone can use this.

Each student gets a worksheet with different spaces (rooms) in the school (playground, office, etc…) on it. I give students a clip board or hard surface to write on. We walk around the school, and stop in each room listed. I give students time to look around the room and write down words that begin with the letter of the week.

When we get back to the classroom, we talk about the words we wrote down.

I started doing this letter building activity this year, and the kids love it! It’s definitely a challenge for my approaching-level students, but I find it to be a great opportunity for the students to help each other.

There are shapes to build each letter, upper and lowercase. Kids get practice cutting and gluing and it also helps with organizational skills. My students glue the letters onto a “letter monster” worksheet, but I have also asked students to glue them in interactive notebooks.

I print the letter shapes on card stock so they’re easier to cut.
