Teaching ABC’s in Kindergarten
During kindergarten, students must learn that spoken words are represented by specific sequences of letters, as a part of the Common Core State Standards. They’re also expected to begin to recognize and name each of the letters in the alphabet. These can be tall tasks for little learners. Building a Foundation for Reading
So how does one teach a young child the alphabet? By creating authentic experiences that children can relate to and remember. These activities make learning ABCs as easy as 1, 2, 3 … Purposeful Play
Directions: Bring in paper plates, uncooked macaroni, markers, and glue. Help each child write the first letter of their first name on a plate. Then outline the letter in macaroni, gluing it down. Finally, have each student introduce themselves to the class by their letter and first name. It’s a perfect first-day icebreaker. #1: Introduce them to the alphabet … and each other “Pasta Rainbow” by Selena N.B.H., CC BY
Directions: Take several cardboard boxes and put a letter on each one. Break the students into groups, giving each group a box. Ask students to walk around the classroom, collecting items that start with their assigned letter. #2: Create phonemic awareness
Directions: Bring in A to Z animal cards and ask students to take turns drawing one from the deck. Upon doing so, each student should read the letter and the animal name aloud. Include a few “wild” cards, which should be the same size as the other cards and feature a picture of your class. When a student draws a “Wild” card, everyone should stand and do their best impression of the last animal called. #3: Teach students to sight-read
Directions: Insert one letter into the pocket of each vest and pass them out to students. Then, write a word on the board and have your class work together to spell it, by physically moving around the room, finding the classmates with the right letters, and putting them in the right order to form the word. Bonus! Teach students how letters form words
