Throughout PreK and Kindergarten, we work hard to help our students master letter recognition and letter sounds. Building this relationship is a critical step in setting the foundation for learning to read and write. It is important for students to be able to quickly identify letter names and know the sounds that they make. The resources included in this bundle will help to provide your students will the tools they need to master letter sounds.
These activities are fun, fresh, and engaging. Plus they are SUPER easy to prep! Most of them are just print and slide in a page protector! Students will use mini erasers, plastic math cubes, and other classroom manipulatives to complete the activities. These activities make great morning work tubs, fast finisher activities, or literacy centers.
This packet includes 10 different resources. Please download the preview for a detailed look at what is included in each of the ten packets.
Picture names are included for ALL pictures.
