Learn your letters by playing with building blocks!
As students study individual letters of the alphabet, provide them with the opportunity to share knowledge they have about the focus letter. Using a set of unit blocks or table blocks, have students take a poster of the letter outline (at least 12" x 18" in size) and work with their blocks to fill in the outline of the letter.
After students fit blocks over the entire outline of the letter, ask them to outline the shape of each block used. Once complete, the letter outline will look like puzzle pieces put together to create the letter. Use Crayola® Construction Paper™ Crayons to create the shape outlines within the letter.
Talk with students about the letter being studied. Ask for examples of words, preferably nouns, that begin with the same letter. For example, if "B" is the focus letter, students may offer words such as bird, bat, ball, etc. List student responses on a classroom white board or easel paper.
Using Crayola® Construction Paper™ Crayons, allow students class time to fill in each puzzle piece with an original sketch of their word suggestions. Continue sketching until all segments of the puzzle have one picture illustrating a word beginning with the focus letter.
Allow each student the opportunity to talk about his letter-puzzle illustration with classmates.
