Provide students with an opportunity to reinforce knowledge of sounds with this tactile learning activity.
Prior to opening this lesson, have a small sandbox available. If one is not accessible, students can line a recycled cardboard box with a plastic garbage bag and fill the lined box with clean sand. Students will also need a few 3" x 5" index cards and Crayola® Washable Markers.
Provide the class with two decks of index cards. The first deck will have all 26 capital letters. The second deck will have all 26 lower-case letters.
Open a conversation with students about letters and the sounds they make. Have the students select one letter card. It can be an upper-case or lower-case letter. Ask students to illustrate how the letter is created by drawing it in their box of sand. Observe students' process of creating the letter. Provide assistance as needed.
Once students have successfully create the selected letter in their sand, ask them to write the letter on one of their blank index cards using Crayola Washable Markers. Cover the index card letter with Crayola School Glue. Place the card in the sandbox and sprinkle sand on the glue. Allow the glue to dry overnight.
Once all glue is dry, bring the class back together and ask for words that begin, end, or contain the letter drawn. Write student contributions on a class white board using Crayola Dry Erase Markers.
