Letter Work

Here is another clever idea from The Mailbox Magazine. I love my weekly e-mails from that website!

As I read this idea I kept thinking of more ways it could be used. A teacher could do this same activity for vocabulary review, synonyms, or even a character description! This is a great idea for any elementary classroom!

Activity: Give phonics review a twist! On a large sticky note, secretly write a letter with a colorful marker. Invite a child to stand with his back to his classmates. Adhere the sticky note to the child’s back without showing it to him. Then have his classmates give him clues to the letter’s identity by naming words that begin with the letter. Soup, sock, and sand—the letter must be s!


How would you use this idea in your classroom?


Happy Reading!
