Alphabet Letter Scavenger Hunt for Kids & Preschoolers

With the nice weather here, why not take advantage of it and get your kids outside and moving. You can incorporate learning the alphabet in a fun unique way that the kids will look forward to.

Since for this alphabet learning game we are dealing with the english alphabet and it’s letters, we will want to use 26 cards. One card for each letter of the english alphabet.

On each card, write each letter of the alphabet. You can use flashcards that are already printed with the letters if you have them.

Simply, hide each flashcard or card with the letters on them throughout your yard in various locations to get the children searching.

When a letter flashcard is found the children come and find the same letter on a sheet of paper which has all 26 letters printed on it. Have the children find the letter they found, on the paper and scratch it off and continue searching for them rest, until all letters have been found.

It’s that simple. This really gets children to identify and match the letters as they find them, slowly eliminating each letter.

Placing the Alphabet Letters In Order;

You should endeavour to have the children place each letter on the table in the proper order (eg.) A–>Z. This is a great way to make the children learn the order, or think of the order of the alphabet letters.

Rainy Day Activity:

This makes a great ‘rainy day’ alphabet learning activity for your children or the children in your care. You can do the same thing but hide the letters throughout your house or in your basement & have the children look for the letters and complete the same steps as above.

*You could even make teams of two or three children etc. You could time each team as they first try to find all the hidden alphabet letters and then scratch them off the paper and place them in proper order on the table. Of course, there is no losers, but everyone is a winner. This is just another possible way to make it fun for the kids.

Preschool Alphabet Activities – Sensory

Teaching Preschool Alphabet Activities the Fun Way!Preschool Alphabet Activities & Sensory:

Looking for a unique sensory type learning activity to teach your preschoolers the Alphabet and it’s letters? This preschool alphabet activity will help preschoolers to learn the alphabet, the sounds of letters, words that start with the various letters of the alphabet and will help develop fine motor skills etc.

 

Requirements for this Preschool Alphabets Activity:

  • Get a plastic sensory bin and fill it with some water.
  • Get some ping pong balls, or small styrofoam craft balls.
  • On each styrofoam craft ball or ping pong ball draw each letter of the alphabet with a black permanent marker. (You will need one ball for each letter of the alphabet)
  • Place the balls in the water (sensory bin) they will float around on top. You could use a couple heavier style balls like ‘golf balls’ but then you dont want children throwing these around or at each other. *You must use supervision & your own discretion.
  • Provide various items like ‘tongs’, small fish nets or ‘spoons, laddles, etc. for the children to use to ‘remove’ the balls one at a time.

How to Use this Preschool Alphabet Activity:

You could let the children or preschoolers each have a turn trying to remove the next ball in alphabetic order. *If you had the room and containers for it you could have a box or container each with a few letters of the alphabet on it.

Doing this will allow the children or preschoolers to then ‘drop’ the balls into each container or box that matches the letter of the alphabet written on the outside.

(ex.) Container is labelled A, B, C, D. The children will then drop the balls that match these lketters into that container or box etc.

You could allow the preschoolers or young children to pull out the balls in the correct order, which involves them searching around a little more or you could let them pull the balls out as they find them and match them to the proper container.

You could allow the preschool kids or children to use only specific tools to remove the balls from the sensory bin, like only using a spoon. Or you could let them pick what ever tools that they want to remove the balls from the water.

You can decide all these rules for the learning game. As teacher or care provider, you can discuss the letter with the children each time they remove a new ball from the water.

You can discuss the pronunciation of that letter. You can discuss words that start with that letter etc.

Use your imagination to keep learning alphabets fun for the children preschoolers in your classroom or at home.

Alphabet Activities for Preschoolers

Get Creative with your Alphabets Activities for Preschoolers!Alphabet Activities for Preschoolers & Children:

Looking for unique, exciting ways to teach preschoolers & kindergarten children all about the alphabet in the preschool or kindergarten classroom?

Looking for Preschool Alphabet themes or alphabet lesson plans?

Learning the alphabet is an important part of a young child’s learning & development as they progress into reading, writing & spelling areas of their learning.

Here is a fun creative activity or preschool alphabet theme you can use with your child or the children and preschoolers in your care.

Alphabet Activities Theme & Circle Time Activity:

Each week you could have a different letter of the alphabet be the focus of learning during your circle time activities etc.

So, starting with the letter ‘A’ you could devote an entire 5 day week to discussing the letter ‘A’ during your circle time activities and your routine.

Get a Large Poster or Picture of the Letter for that Week:

Find a large letter, draw a large letter or find a poster with the letter of the week and have it displyed in the circle time area or classroom where the children can see it.

Everyday, for the week of the letter in question, you could then discuss a new ‘word’ that starts with that Letter of the Week.

  • For Example: Letter of the Week is ‘A’ – You would need a large picture of a letter ‘A’ and a small ‘a’ together so that the children can see the letter of the week.
  • Each day of the week (Monday – Friday) you will ‘focus’ on a different ‘word’ that starts with the Letter of the Week (ex.) Apple.
  • You could talk about Apples & how they start with the letter A.
  • Have everyone say the word ‘APPLE’ and pronounce or emphasize and repeat the ‘AHH’ sound for the word ‘Apple’ 
  • Bring apples into the classroom. Show how they can come in different colors.
  • Bring in ABC Books, books on the Letter A, or a Book on Apples etc. Emphasizing the letter of the Week, in this example, the Letter A.
  • You could also find songs that deal with the letter of the week or that deal with the letter of the day. (ex.) “Farmer Brown had 5 Red Apples” etc.
  • You could actually even let children taste ‘Apples’ or ‘Apple juice’ keeping the focus on this being a fruit that starts with the Letter A.

Sensory Bin Activity:

Set up a sensory bin with some water. Place in some ‘plastic’ apples along with some washclothes or scrub brushes and let the children play with the apples in the water. The preschoolers can pretend they are washing apples.

Art Shelf Activities:

You could have alphabet printable coloring pages dealing the Letter of the week, or objetcs that start with the letter of the week (ex.) Apple coloring pages etc..

Preschool Classroom Library Materials:

You can have books that deal with the Letter of the week, or deal with the word of the day (ex.) Kids books about ‘Apples’ or other words or topics that start with that letter for the preschoolers. ABC Books work for that.

*This is only 1 simple example of things you can do for teaching preschoolers and young children about their alphabet. You can go through the entire alphabet, 1 Letter per Week and each day have a new ‘word’ based on the Letter of the Week.

Simply provide, pictures, books & objects as discussed above about the Letter of the Week and emphasize the pronunciation of the letter in the word and teach children about the ‘word of the day’.

Use your imagination to teach children & preschoolers about the alphabet and words that begin with the letters of the alphabet.

We will be discussing more on similar themes and preschool ideas about alphabets soon..
